Showcasing the very best in new Audio Drama

BB See Less

Does the BBC not realize what they are losing? Audio drama across the Internet has been steadily on the rise. It has not been diminishing, it has been gaining ground with old fans and a new generation of listeners.

Please join me and others who love the BBC on the Speak Up For Radio Drama Now! facebook group and have your voice heard!

    Excellent! Let us know what they are saying when you have a chance!
    Cheers,
