Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - June 22, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 - THE lETHBRIDGE HERALD - Monday, June 22, 1970 Excess Play Given Talent-Hunter By STEVE BAREHAM Herald Staff Writer "Too many Canadian performers are being buried by an excess of American airplay," Tommy Hunter, Cana d i a n country and western artist said in an interview in Lethbridge Saturday. "Over - all Canadian artists probably get good radio cooperation, and now some stations are even very pro-Canar dian." Commenting on new proposals of the Canadian Radio and Television Commission, Play Deadline Is August 15 Deadline is- Aug. 15 for indications to the Allied Arts Council of intention to enter the Festival of One-Act Plays to run at tbe Yates Memorial Centre during the week of Sept. 21. About six plays have been committed so far from various Lethbridge groups and individuals. The festival, which could feature up to six nights of tlffee one-acters', is designed for local and community drama groups, either established now or ones organized expressly for the festival. Entries may be fully-produced plays, produced readings, or excerpts from three-act plays. The main emphasis by the arts council is being placed on using the Yates facilities and taking part in the festival, rather than putting on full-scale production. The arts council is also keeping its resource file available for names of persons wishing to take part in the festival as actors, dh-ectors, playwrights and backstage workers. Intentions to participate, submitted by groups, would probably come from the duwtors of the plays. Hunter said, "I don't feel the CRTC rulings \vill do much, but it may cause more interest in things Canadian." The CRTC has suggested legislation which would bring more Canadian talent to the view of the Canadian public. Tlie conimission provides that Canadian radio and television must fill half of its broadcasting time with plaj-s, shows or music which are Canadian. "I tWnk it is basically a good thing, and will probably eventually work, said Hunter. "Canadian recording facilities' are adequate, and if something comes out that is really bad, I think stations have enough sense not to play it just to fill au* time. "We are receiving very good support from recording studios such as Capital and RCA Victor," Hunter said, "but there is still room for studio improvement." He indicated that rumors about the CRTC causing his show to be lengthened to one hour were totally untrue. "We had planned to produce an hour show before the CRTC came into the picture." Hunter added, "the only problem is that we've also bad the program night changed, and are afraid of losing some of our teenage audience." He declined to compare Canadian country and western music with American country and western, saying, "they are two very different types of music. Too many people try to compare everything Canadian with something American." Hunter said he didn't have any thoughts about a move to the U.S. at the moment. "I intend to keep dodng television and radio in Canada, but I will go where my work takes me."

The question deserves your serious thought. Sure, you'll remember to tei! the telephone company you're moving, and to make the routine arrangements, but there's more to the question than that. The house or apartment you're moving to most lil^ely has a different floor plan and different number of rooms from your present home, and that means your telephone requirements will also be different.
