M*A*S*H, The Audio Book

Richard Hooker’s 1968 novel MASH – which was the source for the movie that was the source for the long-running television show – remains one of my favorite war novels ever, right up there with Joseph Heller’s Catch-22. As such I was surprised and delighted to recently stumble across the BBC’s 2004 radio adaptation, read by Tim Flavin, on a certain bittorrent website.

I didn’t know it existed. Not many people do, apparently; I believe it’s never been rebroadcast since. It’s not the best audio book production ever, but it’s still quite good, and is quite faithful to the original novel.

Anyway, if you’d like to experience this unique bundle of audio joy, you can download the audio files right here; six 15-minute episodes of right around 14MB each, in an 80MB rar file.
