Episode 029 - Classic Radio Theatre - War of the Worlds / by Mark

WSAJ’s “Theatre of the Air” saved the best for last. WSAJ’s version of Orson Welles Larry Bowald couldn’t resist mounting the classic “War of the Worlds” with a western PA twist.

This was an extra length production, with Larry leading the cast of Chris Fisher, Darla Vornberger, Cheryl Sheely, Mark Harrison, Bill Koch, Art Wilson, and Donna Kozik.  We even get a promo for the program!

Somehow, this cassette fared much better over the years, and the audio quality is not bad.

We will get into the “college bands” portion of the series next time (you got a taste of it in this production—nice touch, Larry).
