Goodby Kfac

January 18, 1987

KFAC used to be "classic" in the truest sense of the word: A work of the highest class. Since its takeover by Classical Communications (headed by Louise Heifetz and Robert Goldfarb), I define "classic' ' differently, i.e., "IC" --my reaction to the treatment give so many talented people and "class"--what Heifetz and Goldfarb ain't got.

As my listening experience is comparable to Doug Ordunio's broadcast experience, I consider myself fired too., One hundred and thirty-one year's experience (the total reached by adding the tenures for Tom Dixon, Fred Crane, Carl Princi, Martin Workman and Doug Ordunio) is a lot to toss out so hastily.

Loyalty and affection are delicate things, as Heifetz and Goldfarb will soon see. At least 22 of my friends no longer listen to KFAC--for the same reasons I won't.

And if you have to ask, Mrs. Heifetz, you'll never understand why.
