Happy 97th birthday to Orson Welles!
Today would have been Orson’s 97th birthday. He passed away in 1985. The undisputed greatest radio actor/director/producer of the Golden age. The War of the Worlds, The Hitch Hiker, Mercury Theater of the Air, Les Miserable, The Third Man, The Shadow, The March of Time, 14 August, We Hold These Truths, Fall of the City and the list just goes on. For all of us who make audio today and will in the future, he is the standard against who we will measure ourselves. Thank you Mr. Welles for giving us so much. My life has been enriched by your works and I am constantly inspired by your genius.
