Douglas Adams Live in Concert

Well, I really don't know anything about its origins, but I bought this CD with the same title as this topic. It's of DNA reading excerpts from the books. (I bought it a long time ago, but I was listening to it again yesterday.) Obviously, it's highly entertaining, and I think that these are the readings of Agrajag that they recycled in the new radio series, but since I haven't listened to the new radio series, I'm not sure.

I haven't heard any of the later radio series either.  Probably something I should get at some point, try to collect all the BBC radio stuff.  There has actually been a fair amount of BBC DNA output since his death (3 or 4 hitchhikers? I think, and 1 or 2 Dirk Gently?).  Reviews, from what I have seen, have been positive.  Still, even if the BBC series lacked punch, having DNA reading the part of Agrajag would be entertaining.
