I well remember that. Even a youngling, I felt bad for the Czechs.
"Take a look at that". Sgt. Wilkerson-- CMBN. His last words after spotting a German tank on the other side of a hedgerow.

This one is more 'Feeling Very Old'.

On this day (Oct. 30) 80 years ago, actor Orson Welles announced to audiences in a chilling radio performance that Martians were invading New Jersey, leading terrified listeners to believe that Earth was under attack by hostile aliens.


Original full broadcast included !

That sure wouldn't be believable today. If aliens landed in N.J. today, it would probably scare them so badly they would drop their Anal Probes getting outta town in such a hurry. Thank you New Jersy for being so scary.  :clap:
