May 3rd to May 9th Shows and Highlights

Heading our list of birthday celebrants is the incomparable Orson Welles. Beginning with his one year stint as The Shadow (1937-38), Welles was a very prolific radio performer and we’ll present him in the following series among others: Black Museum, The Third Man, Suspense, fill-in hosting on The Jack Benny Program and Mercury Theatre On The Air’s version of “The Count Of Monte Cristo.” I also bring back Orson Welles’ one and only visit with “War Of The Worlds” author H.G. Wells (which occurred in San Antonio, Texas in 1940).
