In the current revival of radio drama, the indestructible art form has moved to cassette. Magicnet, an adolescent, albeit clever and diverting, science fiction adventure, exemplifies the little audio theater movement. For instance, the lead character, a youngish English professor who loves Keats, is played by gauche, thick-tongued Russell Jones, who mispronounces words like “slavish.” On the other hand, the production values are admirably clean, sharp and professional; the players committed and energetic. Sci-fi buffs will love it. More sophisticated listeners may get a chuckle or two out of its sillier conceits but may not be able to endure all three hours of it.
