October 30, 1938 — Orson Welles — “War of the Worlds” — Aliens

Today, it might seem a little silly that so many people believed this “news”… But we look at it all from our eyes, of course — from here in the 21st century, with all kinds of technology and quick information. But what if you were living in 1938, and way out in the middle of nowhere, and tuned in to this radio show right with the announcement of the aliens landing and destroying everything they came across… You might’ve fallen for it too… Grab a hot cup of cider, close your eyes, and listen… Just don’t let your imagination run too far away and scare ya on this night before Halloween. ; )
