Act One Radio Drama – January 25, 2004

this episode is no longer available

An evening of Old Time Radio Drama, beginning with Howard Koch’s adaptation of H.G. Wells’ War of the Worlds.  Leonard Nimoy,
Gates McFadden, Brent Spiner and fellow cast members from the TV series
"Star Trek" recreate this classic science fiction thriller, which became
known as the "panic broadcast" when it first aired in 1938. The story’s
breathless pace and convincing details make it clear why so many believed
that the aliens were among us. Truly the mother of all space invasions,
"War of the Worlds" offers a rare combination of thrills, chills and great
literature.  Following is a hilarious reprisal of My Favorite Husband, the CBS radio series that inspired "I Love Lucy," by Jess Oppenheimer, Madelyn Pugh, and Bob Carroll, Jr.  Marilu Henner stars as Liz Cooper, the Lucille Ball character. Jeff Conaway, Harold Gould and Alley Mills also star.
