Abstract: Let $ L$ denote the convolution Banach algebra of integrable functions defined on $ {R^n}$ and let $ {L_r}$ consist of the subalgebra of radial functions. If $ I$ is a closed ideal of $ L$, the zero-set of $ I$ is defined by $ Z(I) = \{ y\vert\hat f(y) = 0{\text{ for all }}f \in I\} $ where $ \hat f$ is the Fourier transform of $ f$. The following theorem is proved. If $ {I_1}$ and $ {I_2}$ are closed ideals of $ {L_r}$ such that $ {I_1} \subset {I_2}$ ($ \subset $ denotes proper inclusion) then there is a closed ideal $ I$ such that $ {I_1} \subset I \subset {I_2}$.
