About the show

“The Peoria Plague” is a audio drama recorded in the early 1970’s by WUHN radio in Peoria, Illinois. The Peoria Plague is in much the same way that the 1938 War of the Worlds broadcast was. A news broadcast starts out innocently enough until disturbing events forces the newscast to focus their efforts on a zombie outbreak.

Although this audio drama is enjoyable it is only available in it’s current “copy of a copy of a copy” condition which makes it sound as though it was cheaply recorded over the air using the most incompetent equipment available. This really is a pity since there is a lot of good music in between the newscast, it really makes it feel like you where listening to a real radio broadcast.

The Peoria Plague Audio Drama is free to listen and currently is available trough the Internet Archive. Thanks to Post-apocalyptic.com for making me aware of this classic.
