Official “attack warning” recorded by Jim O’Brien for Philadelphia radio station WFIL in the early 1970s. These recordings were to be broadcast to the population in the event of a nuclear strike on American soil.
This is what the cheesesteak crowd would have heard in the event of an actual attack. Trivia note: Jim O’Brien, who is deceased, was the father of “Frasier” co-star Peri Gilpin. Courtesy Kevin Fennessy and Jim Walsh.
