AUDIOBOOK REVIEW: Ladies and Gentlemen, I’ve just been handed a message that came in from Grover’s Mill by telephone. Just one moment please. At least forty people, including six state troopers, lie dead in a field east of the village of Grover’s Mill, their bodies burned and distorted beyond all possible recognition.

On October 30, 1938, during a regular airing of Mercury Theatre On The Air, a CBS Radio Network news correspondent broke in with the devastating story of an apparent Martian invasion near the unincorporated township of Grover’s Mill, New Jersey. Over the course of the one-hour program, the incoming bulletins grew more and more terrifying as the Martian war machines defeated army units and marched on New York City, their heat rays and deadly poison gas leaving a wake of death and destruction behind them.

Just minutes into the broadcast the phone lines began to jam with listeners trying to reach the CBS offices, the police, family members, or friends. It is reported that many people in the immediate vicinity of the “attack” evacuated their homes, taking as many of their possessions with them as they could carry. The extent of the panic has been, and is still debated but radio broadcasting would be forever changed. The value of radio as a source of news and dramatic entertainment was suddenly apparent.

In 1988, award-winning journalist and voiceover artist Joe Bevilacqua created this thirty-minute special for NPR in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the historic event. It is available now as an audio download for the first time. Contained herein are exclusive interviews with John Houseman, who produced the program, Howard Koch, who was the primary writer of the radio script, and Arthur Anderson, one of the primary actors. You’ll learn about Orson Welles’ involvement in the project. You’ll also hear interviews and commentaries from real-live people who lived in and around the Grover’s Mill area relating their memories of the event, not to mention several clips from the original broadcast itself.

This thirty-minute feature is packed with more information and entertainment than you can shake a heat ray at. Don’t miss out on a unique behind-the-scenes look at one of the more fascinating pieces of American history and pop-culture.

If you’re interested in listening to the original CBS Radio broadcast of The War of the Worlds, you can download a free copy at Archive.org. It’s a good quality copy featuring the entire 60-minute program.
