The War of the Worlds: a radio play

Keep Calm! The Martians are NOT coming... or are they?!

Perhaps the best known radio play of all time, "The War of the Worlds" chronicles the invasion of aliens from Mars. TAP is thrilled to announce we will be broadcasting The War of the Worlds, a 1938 radio drama written by Howard Koch.

The broadcast will air on WERA FM (96.7) at 6pm on October 31, 2020. Yes, that's the 82nd anniversary of the original, Halloween, panic-inducing broadcast. Listen live on the old-fashioned radio, or listen live online.
