submitted by jassmonkey on Monday, October 26 at 12:32 PM
NCSU student radio station WKNC 88.1 FM will perform a live, localized adaptation of the Mercury Theater production of H.G. Wells’ War of the Worlds Saturday, October 31 at 7 p.m. The performance is lead by NCSU graduate student Damian Maddalena, who hosts WKNC’s Mystery Roach Saturday mornings from 8-10 a.m.
Maddalena, along with his Two Cabbage Radio Players, have worked diligently to season the science fiction classic with local flavor. Sound effects will be performed by Brian Donohoe, member of the local band Starmount. AV Geek Skip Elsheimer lends his voice to the production, along with a motley crew of WKNC DJs, NCSU students and community members: DJs Alex Steinbaugh, Caitlin Cauley, Jacob Downey, Liz Cervantes and Mike Gray, along with graduate student Dave Fallest and Magic Babies keyboardist Brandon Whitesell.
The program can be heard live Halloween night beginning at 7 p.m. on 88.1 FM and online at wknc.org.
