RadioLab's Story about War of the Worlds

As luck would have it, this past weekend I was driving back from Virginia where I presented a workshop for students on Old Time Radio Drama. As a fan of radio, I was dial surfing and stumbled upon this terrific story on NPR's program Radio Lab about the Halloween fervor caused by the original broadcast of The War of the Worlds as performed by Orson Welles and the Mercury Theater-on-the-Air. It is a great listen and very educational. Enjoy!
