About Radio 3KR — A note from Kate:
Ryan Morrison and I listened to War of the Worlds on our first tour around Australia, and adored it. I loved the idea of creating a companion piece to the Space Rabbits of Brocklevoons album in the same (but funny) vein. Most of the jokes and the storyline came out of our long van journeys during two tours around Australia.

Big and grateful thanks to Clem Rowe, Axel Moline, Hamish Uebergang, Giselle Mack, Felicity Robinson, the Peraltas, all the above-mentioned musicians and sound experts, Jenny Rowe and Bob Ryan, and all our friends and family who willingly took part in acting and helped us with suggestions to make our idea a reality. A special thanks to John Stuart from Sound Heaven Studios for keeping us focused!
