The notions of alien life forms visiting has evolved drastically since Roswell and before. Today we scoff and joke. Danny Kastner, during some fund raising thing for his own project, devotes funny improv songs to benefactors. For Brick he noodles out the Twilight Zone intro and barfs out some words for his “Alien Christmas Song.” Ha ha.
Back in the ’50s, however, our Earth stood still as we watched the skies. Aliens were as worrisome as nuclear destruction.
Dickie Goodman with pal Bill Buchanan were some of the swinginest DJS of the ’50s, sampling lines of songs to answer serious intrerview questions. When they released “The Flying Saucer” with these bits they were sued. Later, exonerated, they released “The Creature (From a Science Fiction Movie)” and “Buchanan and Goodman on Trial.” Crazy Cats.
For our purposes, consider this 1957 view of scientifically fictive alien invasions “Santa and the Satellite” including the oh so important ‘Turn the record over’ transition for those not as familiar with 45s.
