I know i have a different review on a newer war of the worlds but this is the original. Orson welles is a brilliant man who knows how to put together a masterpeiceI listen to it at least once a week lying in bed just before i go to sleep and it never gets old. Based off a book, Orson Wells made a great science fiction novel become reality for the nation. something that as far as i know has yet to produce as much a nation wide reaction. i highly recomend that everyone should listen to this peice of american classic entertainment, and remember the good ol day before "video killed the radio star" (buggles)
Being able to close your eyes, use your imagination and let your mind create all the special effects is amazing.
How the shadow is able to outsmart everyone is amazing, but you know in the end he will live
Fellow Audible-philes, please demand the reinstatement of this outstanding program!!! Amazon shall not mess this up!!!
A real treat for listeners today, as I sit down with Karen Kondazian, author of the award winning book The Whip, a novel of the old west - plus a chat with actress Robin Weigart, who brings the audiobook to life. Maggie talks with Josh Hanagarne, who dubs himself - and his book - The World’s Strongest Librarian.

"Laugh out loud"
When a naval cruiser sinks in mysterious circumstances in the North Sea, all aboard are lost. Rose is saddened to learn that the brother of her friend, Keisha, was among the dead.

"Difficult to listen to in the car!"
This landmark production, perhaps the most ambitious radio project ever attempted, began when Star Wars creator George Lucas donated the story rights to an NPR affiliate. Writer Brian Daley adapted the film's highly visual script to the special demands and unique possibilities of radio, creating a more richly textured tale with greater emphasis on character development.
"Beyond the film..."
Legions of fans know Opie & Anthony as the kings of "cringe radio," who dominate an expanding media empire. Since October 2004, their unique humor has been the centerpiece of High Voltage, the channel XM Satellite Radio created especially for them. Then, in April 2006, they took over the key morning drive slot on seven CBS Radio stations. Audible's Opie & Anthony subscription delivers both shows in one hilarious package!
"Ramon, bring me a spoiled family photo"
Bilbo Baggins, a gentle hobbit who loves the comforts of home, reluctantly joins a company of dwarves on a journey to recover plundered gold from a fierce dragon. It's a tale of high adventure and astonishing courage, and a magical prelude to the Lord of the Rings trilogy.
"Many years of enjoyment"
"Ron" is Ron Bennington. "Fez" is Fez Whatley. Together with Chris "Pepper Hicks" Stanley, Pips and the whole Ron & Fez gang, they commit their outrageous brand of humor daily on XM Satellite Radio's The Opie & Anthony Channel 103. Their fans love them. Opie & Anthony love them. And now, by subscribing, you can love them too!
"It's been a quiet week in Lake Wobegon, my hometown..." Garrison Keillor first did his monologue in 1974 to an audience of 20 in a St. Paul theater. Today, more than 2.2 million people tune in each week to hear the tall tales and sweet stories about the citizens of this small Minnesota town. It's a town where "the women are strong, the men are good-looking, and all of the children are above average."
In 2011, 13 young women and one young man in the small town of LeRoy, New York experienced “conversion disorder,” a mysterious malady that results in uncontrollable tics, stutters and seizures. Novelist Katherine Howe used this real-life incident as the basis for her new book, Conversion. Then, Ernest Ranglin is a Jamaican guitarist and composer recognized as one of the pioneers of both reggae and ska. Ranglin gave Bob Marley his first hit and it’s his guitar handiwork that you hear on most reggae standards. Now 82-years-old, Ranglin is adding a new album to his discography. Bless Up is the perfect soundtrack for the summer.
Holler If Ya Hear Me, the Broadway musical based on the work of Tupac Shakur, closed after just one month of performances. Reviews were lackluster and ticket sales disappointing. But the show’s star, poet and actor Saul Williams, says Broadway audiences need to get over recycled shows like Rocky and start dealing with real stories. And we take a serious look at Mad Magazine, the goofy, bawdy, sarcastic kids’ magazine that made America snarky. Also, a live performance from Lydia Loveless, the 23-year-old country belter who has to choke back tears when she sings about losing her family’s farm.
On American Public Media’s Marketplace Weekend™ host Lizzie O’Leary guides listeners through the most fascinating economic stories of the week, exploring what happened, why it matters, who it affects and what happens next.

This week on Car Talk, do two people who don’t know what they’re talking about know more or less than one person who doesn’t know what he’s talking about? Andy thinks Tom and Ray’s recent "pas-de-deux of breath-taking speculation" on electric brakes may have answered this question definitively. Elsewhere, Evan’s son stuffed a golf ball into her car’s exhaust, and she worried it may land a hole-in-one right in the middle of her engine; Christine can’t evict a colony of ants living in her car’s headliner; and Todd’s noisy truck gives Tom a chance to re-live his Army days with the long-suffering Sgt. McNeeley.
