KPCC to Broadcast Orson Welles Radio Biography

89.3 KPCC will air a radio biography on the legendary Orson Welles featuring rare broadcast recordings during the 73rd anniversary of “The War of the Worlds” hoax.

Airborne: A Life in Radio With Orson Welles will run twice as a special full-length edition of KPCC’s Off-Ramp on Oct 29 at noon and Oct. 30 at 7 p.m.

“The War of the Worlds was fantastic radio, which is why it’s still revived on dozens of stations every Halloween,” documentarian R. H.Greene said in a statement. “But few people know that Welles also pursued careers as a radio comedian, a wartime propagandist, and a serious political commentator over the air, or that his American radio career ended with a heroic act of great personal sacrifice.”
