Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 27, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta March LETHBRIDQE More cable TV service possible SASKATOON (CP) Private firms would have little difficulty in sidestepping provincial government regulation and providing cable television service in Saskatchewan, Arnold Smith, vice-president of Saskatoon Telecable Ltd., said today. The government announced in 1972 that only non-profit, community controlled organizations would be permitted to connect to Sask Tel's broadband network for the purpose of providing cable television services. Mr. Smith said in an interview that the Saskatchewan government can prohibit private companies from using Sask Tel facilities but could not decide who gets a licence. That question would be decided by the Canadian Radio-Television Commission. NO TROUBLE "Even without Sask Tel facilities private firms will have no trouble delivering cable service We probably would need a microwave THE NOOK will be Opening Soon! setup and if we were prohibited from using Sask Tel I suppose we'd be talking to CN-CP." Mr. Smith's firm has applied to the CRTC for a cable licence. The first non-profit, community controlled cable television operation in the province received government approval last Saturday. Telephones Minister John Brockelbank said the Saskatoon cable television sponsoring co- operative, made up of about 30 community organizations, has been given a grant to assist in its development.

New Metropolitan Opera star made it hard way By MARY CAMPBELL NEW YORK (AP) It took a lot of off-stage shenanigans to give Klara Barlow her big chance with the Metropolitan Opera but she is making the most of it. Tall 5 feet 9 pretty, vivacious, blonde, shapely, frank about her love affairs, Klara looks like 20 on stage. Although prima donnas don't discuss age, she's probably about 40. Her daughter is 21. Most North American listeners had never heard her, or of her. Her career had been one of a long apprenticeship. Until The Met, planning ahead for the 1974 season, hired Catarma Ligendza, the Swedish soprano, for the first Isolde of a programmed eight Tristan und Isoldes. Birgit Nilsson, the reigning Wagnerian soprano and a great Met favorite, was hired for two later ones. Jon Vickers, the world renowned tenor from Prince Albert, Sask., was hired for Tristan a first for both Miss Ligendza and Vickers. But before rehearsals began, Miss Ligendza informed the Met she was sick DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC ROSSHOSACK rtffltd Ma into 8 304 5th SL S. Ph. 327-7244 and wouldn't be available. In the opera business sickness is often a smoke screen for some other less palatable disagreement. OTHERS UNAVAILABLE The Met tried' a dozen sopranos but for one reason or another, only two were available. One was Klara Barlow who, additioned and signed. Vickers pulled out after rehearsals began, saying he was unprepared and tired. There had been disagreement between Vickers and conductor Erich Leinsdorf about who was and who wasn't ready to rehearse. The understudy, Jess Thomas, stepped in. Finally, on Jan. 11, Miss Barlow stepped on stage and her performance was rated by New York reviewers as "triumphant." She went on to star as Isolde in the next three performances and Miss Nilsson agreed to appear in the final four. Now Miss Barlow says she hopes it won't be the story of the comet Kohoutek, a long time coming, much heralded, and then just a dot in the operatic sky. That's what happened in 1971 while she was making guests appearances with small companies in the United States and Canada. She was invited to debut at the Met in Fidelio. The reviews were good, but then came a series of understudy roles and in 3rd ANNUAL Lethbridge Community College INDOOR RODEO by Sat., March 30th, 7 p.m. LETHBRIDGE EXHIBITION PAVILION Canadian Intercollegiate Approved ADMISSION Adults ...................S2.OO she returned to Europe. Said Miss Barlow: "I like to know where I'm standing. I've been puttering around for 15 years. If this was 10 years ago, it would be different. "It's not a matter of conceit; it's knowing you're an artist' Take me while the irons are hot, or I have to go back and do my thing in Europe. If there are so many great personalities, where are they all? If you've got one, use it." Miss Barlow was born in Brooklyn of Welsh and Swedish parents and as a child read all she could about singing and show business. After the High School of Music and Art turned her down, she dropped out of school and at 14 tall and buxom, she looked older got a job as a showgirl. "I toured to Atlanta with a dance she said. "All we had to do was stand around looking beautiful." She also married, divorced and lived three years with a painter. She changed her name from Alma Claire Williams to Klara Barlow. Two older brothers who didn't approve of her lifestyle quit speaking to her. "I haven't remarried. The men all want to stick me in the kitchen. I'm a great cook and I don't mind doing it. But if you have a certain thing inside you, it can't rest until it comes out. Men are jealous if you aren't there when they come home.' Cars stolen BARI, Italy (Reuter) Fifty cars, all with licence plates ending in uneven numbers, were stolen in this Adriatic port city during the weekend, police reported. Only vehicles with uneven numbered plates were allowed on the road Sunday under Italy's alternate weekend driving ban. Police expect a rash of thefts of cars with even numbered plates next weekend when it will be their turn for exemption from the ban. Razzband unique group in entertainment field TORONTO (CP) The el- derly couple seated at a rear table in the nightclub looked perplexed at the bizarre spec- tacle. "Those funny long-haired people up there, they're play- ing our they said. "But it wasn't quite like that in our day." Meanwhile, the Heartaches Razzband swung into another 1930s classic amid zany one- liners and onstage confusion as the audience tried to de- cide whether it was a comedy set or a nostalgic vaudeville performance. "We are says Goldenthroat, singer, racon- teur and central figure of the Razzband. "We are an absurd fantasy." The performance is basic- ally a string of vaudeville fa- vorites, such as Tiptoe Through th the Tulips, laced with skits, solo recitals and satire. Drummer Ritz Jerome Andrew dresses as a Mar- seilles fisherman, Jonathen Owen, at the piano, is attired in run-down white tails, the two trumpet players, known only as Mr. and Mr. Klaus, dress in Father Christmas outfits while Goldenthroat glides around the stage in im- maculate 1930s-style tails. SOUND IS UNIQUE But beneath the visual ridi- cule and the absurd stage an- tics, the Heartaches Razzband remains a unique phenome- non on the entertainment market. Their rendition of vaudeville music is captivat- ing, the musicianship is ex- cellent and the side-by-side ef- fect of songs and skits makes for an unusual evening's en- tertainment. The Heartaches Razzband originated in Vancouver more than three years ago and has been playing throughout Can- ada for "the last 18 months. Most of the time, audiences are pleased by the Razzband paramount MATINEES ONLY SAT. AND SUN.

After one school gymna- sium appearance, a woman stormed backstage to tell Goldenthroat and his friends that they were the worst thing she had ever seen. "She said we were really horrible people with a hor- rible Goldenthroat said. "But we just carried on the absurdity and thanked her so much for being so kind and complimentary." The group admits there never is a serious moment on stage. "In a way, the music is su- Jonathen ex- plained. "What is happening is an absurdity, a put-on, a creation of magic and fantasy on stage with the costumes and the lights. "We have to catch the au- dience right from the top and make them understand that we are absurd. They have to say to themselves, 'What is this? This is ridiculous' and get off on it being so crazy. Then the show starts rolling." In places, audience partici- pation has reached the point where couples do the Charles- ton in the aisles. Goldenthroat usually picks an attractive girl to give a demonstration on stage. The Razzband's horizons, however, are broadening. They have started to record their first album of music and comedy and plan to release a single within a few months. "We expect it will sell alongside the rock 'n' roll Jonathen said "We want to take theatre to the masses paramount TONITE thru.
