The War of the Worlds ----- A true radio classic.
on 16 July 2014
I used to have a copy of this recording on an audio tape I bought way, way back before the advent of CD. This download is a much crisper and clearer version, although it is still evident it was recorded at the time on acetate. Considering the age of the orriginal broadcast, this is an excellent reproduction of one of radio's greatest pieces of nostalgia. The fact that this adaptation caused widespread panic on the eastern seaboard of the U.S.A. when it was first broadcast is a tremendous compliment to the great Orson Welles and his Mercury Theatre on the Air company. Thank You Amazon for making it availible for download at such a bargain price. For anyone who loves classic old radio recordings I say buy it and enjoy one of the best dramatisations you'll ever listen to.
