War of the Worlds Radio Broadcast Causes Panic

http://history1900s.about.com/od/1930s/a/warofworlds.htm

Before the era of T.V., people sat in front of their radios and listened to music, news reports, plays and various other programs for entertainment. In 1938, the most popular radio program was the “Chase and Sanborn Hour” which aired on Sunday evenings at 8 p.m.

From viewing this article I have pinpointed this quote to demonstrate the fact that depending on the time and development of technology, consumers have always been vulnerable to entertainment. This is because almost everyone enjoys a type of entertainment and can become addicted to something that is popular or used a lot at the time. Individuals are highly susceptible to addiction if they already have addictive personalities. This ‘condition’ might be the source of the entertainment industries income but then entertainment can’t help people from becoming addicted to something they created thinking people will enjoy the product.
