After the great success of the "A Place in England" last week on BBC Radio Three you will be shocked to know that Henry Ayrton's Folk and Roots show on BBC Radios Humberside, Leeds & Sheffield and on BBC North Yorkshire & Radio York is to be axed and this will happen on Thursday, with no notice.

Letters of protest should be sent to your local BBC station manager or to:

BBC Yorkshire & Lincolnshire
9 Chapel Street
HULL
HU1 3NU

A word of warning. When a concerted letter campaign like I hope this one will be kicks off, the BBC draws up a standard response letter.

Only when a second letter to the same person is sent (and make sure that yours addresses specific issues) will it be taken seriously so to speak.

Get writing.
