The scene: October 31, 1948. Radio station WBFR recreates Orson Welles’ notorious 1938 Mercury Theatre broadcast of H.G. Wells’ novel, “The War of the Worlds” – which inspired panic in listeners who mistook the radio play for on-the-spot news. Complete with vintage commercials and live sound effects, this radio-play-within-a-play is a thrilling homage to the golden era of radio.
