The War of the Worlds 80th Anniversary

October 30th, 2018 will mark the 80th anniversary of Orson Welles‘ legendary live radio play broadcast of H.G. Wells’ science fiction masterpiece, The War Of The Worlds.

In honor of that occasion, Stardust Records is reissuing the broadcast as part of a limited edition, 2 CD collection that includes the complete original 1938 broadcast along with a rare February 1955 broadcast and a October 1940 conversation between Orson Welles and H.G. Wells.

This set was produced for release by Athan Maroulis who compiled it and penned the accompanying liner notes.

As a child, Maroulis, known primarily as the vocalist of Spahn Ranch, Black Tape for a Blue Girl, and presently in NOIR, became fascinated by this story after watching a made-for-television film about the panic that ensued after the original 1938 broadcast.

Later, Maroulis began collecting memorabilia relating to both The War of the Worlds and Orson Welles, which he put to use during this project.

Painstakingly remastered, this version of The War of the Worlds sounds even better than it did when it first reverberated out of vacuum tube radios back in 1938.

Stardust Records, a division of Cleopatra Entertainment, will release this pioneering science fiction collection on October 19th, 2018 on compact disc and all digital formats.
