Audio Interview: H.G. Wells and Orson Welles on KTSA radio, San Antonio, Texas, October 29th 1940.

On the eve of Halloween, 1938, Orson Welles (also known as the man who created Citizen Kane) and the Mercury Theatre on the Air program broadcasted a fake Martian invasion inspired by H.G. Wells’ The War of the Worlds. America was terrified!

On October 29th 1940, H.G. Wells and Orson Welles met on KTSA radio in San Antonio, Texas. Click here for a brief audio excerpt of that meeting.
