Orson Welles’ radio work is defined by a skirmish between a couple of planets, but there was far more to his career than an invasion from outer space. We’ll celebrate the actor, writer, and director’s birthday with some of his performances on the air. First, he recreates his Third Man movie role in “Horse Play” from The Lives of Harry Lime. Then, he narrates the bloody history of “The Khaki Handkerchief” from The Black Museum.
