We return this week with more Orson Welles in the Campbell Playhouse. From November 5, 1939 we’ll hear The Hurricane.
It’s not Halloween without War Of The Worlds, and it can’t be Christmas without A Christmas Carol. From December 24, 1939 here’s The Campbell Playhouse with their version of the holiday classic.
For today’s show we’ll revisit the Orson Welles Theater for an episode that first aired December 22, 1941. This one features three performances beginning with Nativity From St. Luke’s, followed by The Happy Prince, and concluding with a poem by G.K. Chesterton.
Today marks the 71st anniversary of the infamous War Of The Worlds broadcast. It’s only fitting we hear it again today. From the Mercury Theater On The Air, it first aired October 30, 1938.
For more information on this broadcast, and the panic it allegedly created, here are some links:
This week it’s another episode from The Lives Of Harry Lime. Hear a kinder, gentler Lime than the one you know from The Third Man in this episode from December 14, 1951 titled An Old Moorish Custom.
