'The ABC will axe its radio plays, an 80-year tradition as old as Aunty herself, in a major overhaul of Radio National in which 11 staff and seven programs will disappear to save $1 million. Radio National manager Michael Mason yesterday told staff of the sweeping changes, which include the cancellation of the radio drama program -- called Airplay -- as well as MovieTime, The Book Reading and Sunday Story.'
