The Mountain Arts Community Center, the home of "radio station" WMAC, invites the public to take a stroll down memory lane for a nostalgic return to the Golden Age of Radio on Thursday, Oct. 31 and Friday, Nov. 1. Three of that era's classic thrillers will be re-created: “The Hitchhiker,” "Sorry Wrong Number," by Lucille Fletcher. and Orson Welles' famous Mercury Theater's presentation of "War of the Worlds" (the broadcast that purportedly caused panic throughout the country when it was first presented in 1938).
The event will take place at MACC, 809 Kentucky Ave., at 7 p.m.
each night. Admission is free, but donations are encouraged for improvements to the MACC Auditorium.
