Back in 2007, a little known community FM station broadcast no less than 13 drama productions - the station is still on the air but alas no drama. So- UK radio broadcast drama from:
2007 broadcasts at 11.59pm:
June 17: Just a Little Fiddle
June 24: Sherlock Holmes and the case of The Yellow Face*

Recordings are known to exist of A Fair Deal By Jill Woods (45 mins) - and also 2nd September 2007 Myself and Lady M By Angela Howard (46 mins), both in good quality.
The production company was Essex Audio Theatre and the recording, editing, and presentation were by the late Dennis Rookard (decd 2010), who founded Hosiprog to provide drama and features for hospital radio and community radio stations. He was with Phoenix from 1996-2010 and also with Radio Essex and LBC. See http://essexaudiotheatre.co.uk/productions.html for more of their productions which includes those two.
* The four listed SHERLOCK HOLMES stories are not listed on the Essex website but were produced by Dennis Rookard for Hosiprog by Old Court
Radio Theatre Co. 13 of their Holmes plays were recorded, directed by Roger
Johnson. Phoenix only broadcast some of them, asterisked above and still in existence. The rest were possibly restricted to hospital radio. Also made were a Conan Doyle Holmes story
and two non-Conan Doyle Holmes stories- these three from Pig Pen
Productions (Teeside). Jim Crozier plays Holmes in all of them.
