Documentary on WKBW radio's 'War of the Worlds' to premiere this fall

From The Buffalo News:

"In the KB version, [Irv] Weinstein played himself as Channel 7's anchor and was "killed" by a Martian heat ray atop Buffalo City Hall as he covered the fictional alien landing. 

[Jeff] Kaye was the WKBW program director and played himself. He "died" on Main Street of poison gas.

On Halloween night ... the original WKBW radio program will air on WWKB 1520 AM and 97 Rock will air its 1998 production of "War of the Worlds."

On the same night, WECK radio will air the original 1938 Orson Welles' "War of the Worlds program" about Martians invading Earth that inspired WKBW's version 30 years later."
