BBC Under Fire in York.

Those fans of quality music living in the York area may be interested in this letter from BSH regular Liz to The York Press re the axing of popular presenter Sandie Dunleavy.
I am shocked to learn Sandie Dunleavy is being axed by the BBC in the new year. She plays  the most pleasurable music on Radio York most evenings of the week, and it is the sort of mix which appeals to most ages, all quality stuff catering for those of us who appreciate a good tune and a good lyric. 
Once again the BBC is seeing fit to target those people over a certain age who rely on the radio for company and, in her case, quality. She has such a pleasing manner, chatting in between her choices, and generally creating a feeling of well being. Sandie, you are valued and it will be a sad day when you are no longer there to brighten up our evenings. Shame on the BBC, who I had hitherto always looked up to.
Elizabeth Harris.
