"WAR OF THE WORLDS".
How did this little N.J. farming town get picked for a Martian invasion? Radio producers simply randomly stabbed a push pin - into a map and it landed on Grovers Mill.
This tribute below features the composition of musical genius Kip Rosser, on an electrically charged sound wave instrument called a Theremin. It was used for many creepy soundtracks for Sci fi films back in the day, including Star Trek. See if it brings back memories if of that age group. Check out his other classical tunes on the same instrument on youtube.
Turn up the sound and ENJOY
Music by the amazing musician Kip Rosser played on a Theramin
