On October 30, 1938, Orson Welles and the Mercury Theatre on the Air performed H.G. Wells' sci-fi classic War of the Worlds live on CBS Radio. The broadcast changed media history as people tuning in mid-program heard realistic-sounding news reports "live" from a spaceship crash site, and continued listening as the apparent martian invasion continued over the next hour. The station was flooded with calls from terrified listeners who were convinced that the broadcast was real.
