orson welles meets h.g. wells: jolly good new noises

The above is a short audio clip of Orson Welles speaking with H.G. Wells in 1940. They met for the first time a day beforehand in San Antonio, Texas. I like how HG sneaks in a plug for Citizen Kane early on. HG says that he hopes Kane will bring about “jolly good new noises.”
