  Expect to hear more about the War of the Worlds. The drama of a Martian invasion comes to life at the University of Hawaii. The Theater and Dance department is helping to mark the 80th anniversary of the SciFi radio play. It opened this weekend. Katherine Altman is the show’s director. She thinks its timely given our climate of fake news and the recent panic we lived through with the false missile alert at the beginning of the year.

Intro Music: Fried Neck Bones and Some Homefries by Willie Bobo

Outro music: Cissy Strut by The Meters
