CKWW AM 580 to air "The War Of The Worlds" Halloween Night at 10 PM

On Halloween night, AM 580 will once again turn back the clock to air one of the most infamous radio broadcasts of all time. "The War of the Worlds" was originally broadcast in 1938 as part of the "Mercury Theatre On The Air" program. Based on the H.G. Wells science fiction novel, this radio show starring Orson Welles had a nation convinced aliens were invading. Despite numerous disclaimers, the simulated news bulletins were so believable that panic gripped the country as thousands actually thought aliens had landed in Grover's Mill, New Jersey and were taking over the world.

AM 580 has re-played this historic broadcast every year at Halloween since the early 1990's.
