This site provides a collection of radio dramas from The Mercury Theater on the Air series in the 1930s. The show featured Orson Welles and John Houseman. One of the most memorable radio dramas from The Mercury Theater on the Air was Orson Welles, War of the Worlds. It is at this site, but so are many others. The 1988 interview by Leonard Maltin with surviving members of the Mercury Theater on the Air (found at the very bottom of the page under the Theater of the Imagination link) provides some wonderful history and backgound information for these radio dramas.
