heard a recording of the October 1938 Mercury
Theater broadcast when I was a kid in the
'70s. I even watched a crummy television
movie about it. What a miserable idea that
was. But I didn't care. Anything H.G.
Wells, and in particular this peculiar bit of
American history was, and still is, a source of
fascination for me.
Blue's 19 minute version of "The War of The
Worlds" could probably stand to be 23
minutes long, but honestly...if you can destroy
the world in 19, why drag things
who enjoy listening to NOAA,
police scanners, and AM radio may understand the
fun I had working on this project.
a respectful nod to the ghost of Mr. Wells,
Kill the lights
Turn the TV off
Turn your imagination on
