70 years ago - Martian Invasion
There are so many great tangents to this, and technology has several obvious ones. The social network of the time was a face to face system and telephone was a rather new instant messenger only a few had.
It's easy now to make fun of those who panicked during this broadcast. That's not why I love it. I love how close families were then, how close they necessarily had to be then for each city exodus to happen. I don't mock them - I envy them.
Gather those you love for some old fashioned spooktacular theatre of the mind this Halloween.

If that url quits working try this one. That host shares many Mercury Theatre shows though and is getting hammered this week.

Actually the Martians really did invade and they claimed it was fiction just to cover it up. The Earth is actually now full of Martians and you're the only human left!
