“Letter complaining the "executives" of the Manchester music business - eg. Tosh Ryan, Richard Boon, Tony Wilson - have sold their dreams for "cheap money". 'City Fun' described as a "fourth rate organ". Letter writer claims "Everyone decent left Manchester years ago". But as the reply suggests, the fanzine never gave these "executives" an easy ride. Throughout the pages 'City Fun' oscilates between support and encouragement on the one hand and sarcastic iconoclasm on the other.”
