Peki: Mark and Brian on KLOS did a rebroadcast of War of The Worlds when I was about 13 or so? I had just walked into the room, had no clue, and they did the "breaking news out of chicago as a UFO has crashed in the intersection." I listened intensely, not totally believing it (since when does Mark and Brian do news?), but eventually I decided it was real and ran screaming into the next room. "Mom, mom! Holy crap, aliens have finally landed! So cool!"My mom just waited a few minutes with a smile until "And now for the commercial break of Mark and Brian's anniversary broadcast of HG Wells. . . " Yeah, I felt a little stupid./that brief moment where I actually believed was kinda cool though. No fear, just sheer curiosity.
I find this impossible to believe.

Tobin_Lam: I don't listen to my local radio stations anymore. They play old songs and don't report any news. The interstate was shut down on one side and one station's DJ said,"People going home on the freeway are in for a surprise." That was the only mention of it on any of the radio stations.
