"How Radio Was Done" Part 7 (Solo): A 5-hour edition covers the defeat of Germany and the continuing war with Japan. Orsen Welles returns with his brand of patriotism in the Lockheed Vega program, "Ceiling Unlimited," Nazi death camps are exposed by Edward Murrow, and battlefield radio covers island invasions across the pacific until the atomic bomb is dropped and the war ends. Hiroshima immediately enters the English language and then it’s songs. Two years later, as Superman battles the Atomic Man, the first flying saucer sightings are documented by radio news across the country and enter science fiction radio at the speed of light.
