Summary
Account of the practical joke that fooled American radio listeners and made Orson Welles famous
Summary
On Halloween, 1938, a radio broadcast warned Americans of breaking news: "Aliens are coming!" Listeners got even more terrified as the story continued: A flaming spaceship had crashed into Earth! Martians had invaded! People panicked and fled their homes before learning the truth: the whole thing was a hoax. Aliens Are Coming! tells the incredible-but-true story of the broadcast of War of the Worlds, a radio play about alien invasion. -- Description by Rebecca Honeycutt
