Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy Radio Show Audio MP3

As a long time avid fan of HHGTTG I stumbled across a website which had the audio files for the original radio show. In the interests of archiving I have downloaded them to TOP for hosting.I will be adding the links shortly.



  1. Thankyou, thankyou, thankyou!!! What a find! You are good, vgood.
    Hitchhikers is a gem, what a shame Douglas died so young.
    I will join your site, please email me anytime,

  2. Plague times call for old memories-thanks for the collection-my old copies on cassettes are dispersed-best wishes

  3. Thanks so much for sharing. I’m making a big tediously detailed painting and it kept me going. Is there a second series on MP3?

    1. Hi Michelle glad they are helping you, what are you painting? The one on here is the original radio series but I think there were other audio ones as well. I will have a look.

  4. Many thanks for sharing these. I recall listening to these as a kid (big brothers are useful tipsters!) I will relisten and enjoy again with thanks to you.


  5. Wow, I remember listening to these as a kid (and reading the books too many times to count!) Thank you so much for posting these!

  6. I turn 42 this weekend. I plan to listen to this as part of my birthday celebration. Thanks for posting these for so long. 🙂

  7. You have performed a great service to humanity in these dark days. Hopefully we will get through these times just as Arthur Dent does.

  8. THANKS SOOO MUCH! I also had cassettes recorded from other cassettes recorded from NPR. Long since misplaced my copies and have been looking to hear these again. FWIW it sounds to me like your copies are running a little sped-up. To me they sound more like I remember slowed down about 6 or 7%. I don’t have any objective reference though. I made copies for myself slowed down 6% if you’d like to compare. Also have a version with some dynamic compression that I think helps a bit. I’d be happy to pass them back to you if you like. Meanwhile I’ll share and enjoy them over a cup of something that is almost, but not entirely, unlike tea.

    1. Hi Peter glad your liking them. Interesting about it being sped up as not had anyone else mention it but yes if I could have a copy of your edited versions that would be great to compare.
