Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - June 24, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa I di vision / oday - By    Jay    Sharbult    —_ Radio Show Li ive NASHVILLE, Twin. IAI’) It seems weird in this disc jockey day and age, but there’s a morning radio show here featuring a 10-piece band. A live one. It’s part of WSM’s “Waking Crew”, the local talk and music effort that starts its 75-minute veision of reveille weekday mornings at 7:45 am. The proceedings, held in a surprisingly unguarded studio where unwary visitors are apt to find themselves part of the day’s act, has been on WSM for 22 years. One of the last of its kind in tin* U.S., its a stubborn holdout from the day s listeners arose to “Don MacNeil’s Breakfast Club” and not deejay chatter. As WSM-AM’s General Manager U*n Hensel puts it, “The show is what we call the last of the Mohicans.” * * * What makes this tribe a bit unusual — at least for those who think Nashville means only country music — is that its music is decidedly uncountry. Last Monday, for example, the wares included “Blue-sette”, “I Cover The Waterfront”, “Sing” from “Sesame Street” and “Alexander’s Ragtime Band”. The contemporary approach aims at Nashville’s urbanites, not the country fans WSM programs for at night, and the ratings show it works well, Hensel says. “The show is nostalgic, but it’s more than that,” adds Teddy Bart. .‘18, the Pennsylvania-born host of the “Waking Crew” since 1972. “It’s a tradition.” The tradition currently includes a different local vocalist each day, plus Bill Williams, southern editor for Billboard magazine, and John Bibb, sports editor of the Nashville Tennessean. * * * Williams does news and country music items and ap- Bibb, the .sporting scene. Each docs his thing in an off-hand conversational way. It’s not the frantic Manhattan preach by a long shot. Members of the band, all on staff at WSM, also chip in, razzing and being razzed, the give-and-take more akin to a studio rehearsal than an on-air show. The humor is a shade corny at times, but it’s not hillbilly. On one show, for example, band pianist Joe Layne was chided for trying to sell autographed pictures of Dizzy Gillespie at a country music show. The “Waking Crew” isn’t a low cost venture by any means. Hense says it costs close to $2.IMM) a week to air and it’s on 52 weeks a year. It would be far cheaper to install a morning disc jockey. Why hasn’t this been done? ♦ * * “Well, we’ve been noted over the years for live music,” says Hensel, whose station has continuously aired “The Grand Old Opry” since 1925. “We (Nashville) are Music City and Music City should be something beside records,” he said. “The idea of taking off “Waking Crew” and putting on records has never occurred to us. “We’ve given it no thought. If we were to take the show off, it’d be like turning off our transmitter.” IOWA Blouin To Spend Half Of Campaign in Linn Native of C.R.
