I first experienced this story on the radio in 1977, over NPR. They played it in half hour installments and my sister and I got to listen in my parents bedroom with a big bowl of popcorn. I loved the vivid mental images created by the actors readings... and the music is just as folksy and wonderful as I remembered. It will ALWAYS be my favorite way to experience "The Hobbit."
The characters voices are just as I imagined
I LOVE Bilbo's scene with Smaug.
I like spacing it into 30 minute sections.
Get it. You won't regret it. BBC BRILLIANCE.
