Showcasing the very best in new Audio Drama

Jim French Productions Off The Air

One of the great heartaches of growing older is seeing the end of things.

All things begin and all things must one day end, but it’s very bittersweet when its one of the great pillars of the Audio Drama community and that’s exactly what Jim French Productions is. For over two decades now, JFP has been making incredibly polished professional, stellar radio dramas and they are closing their doors at the end of March.

This February Newsletter has all the information:

Hello Jim French Productions fans.

In last month’s newsletter we told you that Jim had been hospitalized, had surgery and was on the mend. He is back home now, recovering and feeling better.

A few of you may know that Monday night we had our usual January live performance (a double length Sherlock and single length Harry Nile) at the Kirkland Performance Center. It was a sold out crowd and everyone had a good time, although a bittersweet time.

Monday night was our last live performance at Kirkland and it was also the scene for our announcement that, after almost 21 years producing Harry Nile, Sherlock Holmes, Kincaid and other series and single stories, Jim French Productions’ Imagination Theatre will be retiring from production and closing its doors at the end of March.

We’ll be broadcasting new shows up until the end of February and the website will stay open for sales until mid-March.

There are many “ends” that have to be tied up before we close so the office will remain open until the very last day, Friday, March 31, unless something changes.

If you wish to get our online catalog simply email us at and put the word “catalog” in the subject line and we’ll email one off to you as soon as possible.

Thank you for your support through these 21 years.

    Is there any where to buy ‘The Adventures of Harry Nile’ audio sets?

  2. Jack says:

    Hi Sharon! Sorry for the delay, I was trying to track down where you could buy some of the work. The amazing Sable Jak has some available in her ebay store and you could get some there.. but please contact her early as she’ll be out of town in December!

    We have heard Jim for years, growing up in WA. State. We started to enjoy the radio shows when Jim left 710 am radio. We have shared many a hot and cold drink over these many years now of stories. We will miss Harry the most, but knowing we set and watched some being produced a few times, years ago will always be a great memory for us to share with our daughter as she hears these now for the first time.
