A WAR AND PEACE SPECIAL From the Pacifica Archives this newly re-constituted homage to "The War and Peace Broadcast, 35 Years Later." On December 6, 1970, during the height of the Vietnam War, more than 170 people from all walks of life came together to read from one of the great novels of all time. Nearly five days later, the legendary actor Morris Carnovsky read the famous last words to Leo Tolstoy's "War and Peace," ending what was at the time, the longest continuous broadcast in radio history. Bookstore shelves were emptied of the title as listeners read along with the enormous cast. The radio station was WBAI. The program was produced, written and edited by Christopher Sprinkle with Technical Direction by Mark Torres.
