Letter: TV turn-off.

Byline: T.Williamson

COMPLAINTS ab out the endless trash on television make me wonder why more people don't switch to the wireless, surely the thinking person's medium.

A radio is a wonderful companion and with a swift twiddle of the knob you can pass by all the cheap music stations and find a bert hat either Radio 4 or Radio Merseyside.

On Four, you have intelligent ``talk'' programmes with lots of wit and humour,good plays,book and art reviews and the masterful Alastair Cooke's Letter from America.

On Merseyside there is chat, local topics, up-to- the minute traffic and weather news,and a generally friendly atmosphere.

Add to that a good newspaper, like the Daily Post,and you will find there is hardly any need for TV at all.
