This review is from: The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy: Primary Phase (Original BBC Radio Series) (Audio CD)
I just found this link and can't wait for the CDs to arrive. This morning, I was trying to explain to my wife the THRILL of sitting around the living room with my family (we did these kinds of family-oriented things back in the 70s/80s) anxiously waiting to see which of my brothers my dad would choose to put record (33 1/3) on the hifi. Hitch was one of the funniest drama-comedy albums of my teenage years. And yes, FM/AM (Carlin) was great, but Hitchhikers went beyond funny. The trip your mind could take when you listened to the record - with the sound effects and music - how your imagination could take off. Hitch on audio rates right up there or better with the "Theatre of the Mind" radio programs - but Hitch was funny. If you haven't had the chance to listen to Hitchhikers, then this should be on your bucket list. Make sure you get the BBC version.
