Cranks, Crack-pots, and Martians
On October 30, 1938, the Columbia Broadcasting System (CBS) broadcast an adaptation of The War of the Worlds by H. G. Wells. The hour-long radio program began with an announcer  introducing a musical performance and moments later interrupting with a  special news bulletin describing the landing of Martians in New Jersey  and their subsequent attacks with death rays. Although CBS made four  announcements during the broadcast identifying it as a dramatic  performance, millions of Americans who heard it were scared into some  sort of action, many wrote letters. The newly created Federal  Communications Commission received more than 600 letters about the  broadcast, including the one featured here.
