This episode would have been considered dated in 1959, never mind 1979. Basic theme is borrowed from THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL, but laughably produced. At one point the Air Force officer tells the farmer, "This base's purpose is Top Secret. It's where we store our nuclear warheads." Gee, he sure knew how to keep that "top secret."

I loved it. I am 15 and I listen in me bed in the dark. I think about kids me age way back in the seventies and even much earlier like fifties and I think about this is all they had and their imaginations to have fun. I think of how is much different now then back in the old days. I like having to imagine characters and places listening to these old radio shows, and it gives me another look into America past. Thank you for sharing with me.
