Letter: Wavelength congestion on a crowded isle

Sir: As a regular listener to Radio 4 FM, I must take exception to your argument (leading article, 30 April) that music gains more from stereo transmission on FM than the spoken word. I for one would greatly miss the realism brought to Radio 4 drama by stereo transmission, and FM transmission.

As a 'twenty-something' brought up with high-quality sound, I would be loath to have to put up with an AM longwave service.

Yours faithfully,



30 April
