Radio. This beautiful invention needed to come from somewhere. And the impact it had on the world was massive, especially with Orsen Welles.


I want to talk about the background of radio but already feel that I will be carried away by this magnificent person Orsen Welles.


A funny fact is that he always drove around in an Ambulance, what in that time was still legal. He bought an old ambulance, put on the light and he was always faster than anyone else on his destination. What a guy.


Back to his broadcast. Read about: War of the worlds. He broadcasted that piece so professionally that people listening really thought it was real and were leaving their houses and calling the cops. Fleeing and trying to find out what was going on.
