HHG was the first novel I bought with my own money when I was 12ish. Big fan of the original TV series and still annoy my family on road trips by listening to the radio plays ad nauseam. @slartibartfast42 what say you?
NAH - the original radio series was the best, as it left it to your imagination to fill in the visuals..Great movie and even better book. Watch us from above and laugh, Mr. Adams. Cheers
If we follow the same logic the best way is just to read the books. This way the "Imagination V8 Turbo Engine" is utilized to it's maximum potentialNAH - the original radio series was the best, as it left it to your imagination to fill in the visuals..
Wonderful series and Mr Adams was a client of ours until his income allowed a Krell/top Sonus Faber style of system
"Life, don't talk to me about life..." - shuffles off into the distance...
The theme tune was by the Eagles. Journey of the Sorcerer.HHG sure has legs. Mr. Adams should be resting easily with the joy he created.
BTI (Before the Internet) it was kind of a 'specialty' craze, esp amongst techy types, and yes, the BBC radio series is STILL the best...still hear the theme music (radiophonic workshop era?) in my head on many days.
I have all of them on cassette tape somewhere - I went to great lengths to make sure I got all of them recorded, racing home to fire up the deck and tuner at ? 8pm each Monday? here.
Now, what the 3rd or 4th generation is learning of it?
PS. Back in the 70s, when my 'group' was so addicted to the shows, one of their names was Marvin, who had serious spine/leg surgery work done, and was a bit bi-polar, but took the coincidence of so much pain 'in all the diodes down my back (?)' with great humour, even I think lightened his load a wee bit? We surely all enjoyed listening to each new episode together, for sure.
That, and, well, the Goon Show are some of the greatest of Great Britains' creations, IMO.
