Missing 'Femme FM'

RECEIVED Mon., Sept. 11, 2006

Dear Editor,
    I suppose radio managers feel they have to tinker with things to earn their pay, but why do the KUT brass have to cut back John Aielli and fire Teresa Ferguson ["Media Watch," News, Sept. 8]?
    I like Paul Ray's Twine Time, but two hours of Sixties R&B on Saturday evening is plenty, while Ferguson's Femme FM attracted me not only for her excellent sampling of female vocalists but also to listen to the silkiest voice on Austin radio.
    Honestly, I kept expecting KUT to give her more hours on the air. To run her off is, to put it plainly, a dumb move.
