The day ahead on 90.7-FM

12 a.m. (midnight): Radio News: Monitoring Times RIP; The Spectrum Times Begins Monitoring Times ends 33 years of publication, The Spectrum Times to take its place. Radiosurvivor.com reports.

5 a.m.: This Week in Radio News: 20131028 First, radio headlines, including the Federal Communications Commission's extension of the low-power FM application window until Nov. 14. Then, a listen back at the 75th anniversary of The Mercury Theatre on the Air's Oct. 30, 1938 broadcast of "The War of the Worlds." Orson Welles was influenced by two earlier, similar "fake newscasts," one in which he portrayed the reporter. Welles also, reportedly, used the radio broadcast of the Hindenburg disaster as a template for his broadcast. For this report, we tune in AT&T phone operators, who remember the calls they received during the broadcast. This report also excerpts Welles press conference the next day, and a radio interview with H.G. Wells, author of "The War of the Worlds" book.
