GCR1 to air special war of the worlds marathon broadcast
Tune into GCR1 on Halloween night for a special six hour War of the Worlds marathon broadcast, as we pay tribute to the iconic 1938 broadcast which caused a nationwide panic, as millions of Americans believed that the Earth was being invaded by Martians. You'll hear the original Mercury Theater on the Air adaptation of the H.G. Wells novel War of the Worlds, as well as more recent broadcasts inspired by the original. This is available on our partner station Wings Radio 1, Monday, 10/31, starting at 6 PM Eastern. Also, another of our partner stations, KNDY XTRA will air this special independently of GCR1, starting at 6 PM Central time that same night. Enjoy!
