Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 28, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD Thursday, November 28, 1974 RADIO CARLETON'S PUBLIC AFFAIRS DIRECTOR, CHRIS HENRY, SPINS A RECORD IN THE UNIVERSITY'S STUDIO Courses get off the ground in January Alternative educational programs designed SURREY, B.C. (CP) Margaret Baillie of Vancouver left school in Grade 8, but has fol- lowed alternative educational pursuits ever since, and at 30 is designing programs for those who have a quest for knowledge but not the requirements, time or funds to attend day universities or specialized schools. Working under contract with the school board here in one of Vancouver's outlying municipalities, she is considering offering courses covering home repairs for the housewife, the metric system, home and cultural arts, astrology and card games in a program which will get off the ground in January. "What we need now are people who are interested in volunteering their teaching abil- ities and students wishing a she said. "We're calling for people who want to share their interests and hobbies with others. We want to see the program work as a switchboard of exchange." The concept of providing an alternative to academic education is not new to her. In 1969 she formed the Vancouver Free University. All courses were non-academic; instruc- tors did not have to be professionals, and stu- dents did not have to be high school graduates. The university died in June, 1974, after she had left to form a youth activity centre, but the idea from which it arose has been extend- ed to her new venture "I don't know if knowledge can be pinned at a level academically says Miss Baillie. "To me, it's an inter-reaction and continuing process. As long as one has a thirst for mind will not stagnate. Learning is a process that never stops.''

They've recently come one step closer to fulfilling that dream. After years of talk and planning, they've made a sub- mission to the Canadian Radio-Television commission (CRTC) to broadcast on the FM band to a potential au- dience of more than in the Ottawa-Hull area. Currently CKCU-Radio available only on the Carleton campus using a low-power transmitter. From its studios in the student uni- versity centre, CKCU broad- casts 24 hours a day. Randy Williams, station manager, says the limited size of the audience some- times is discouraging for the students who act as disc jock- eys and technicians. "How do you develop the es- prit de corps you need when you're only broadcasting to 300 people in he asks. Williams is convinced Radio Carleton can offer programm- ing not now available to the community at large. The emphasis on com- mercial hits or middle-of-the- road music on local AM sta- tions would be replaced by un- derground rock, country music, specialized jazz and classical programming, the 27-year-old manager says. News programming on the new FM outlet would be pro- vided by Carleton journalism students. Multicultural shows would come from university language departments. Williams, a former student of English and sociology, points to current programm- ing as proof of what the sta- tion might offer with an FM licence. Corner of 4th Ave. 6th St. S.

Another program features ar- tists at Le Hibou, a local coffee house. The station's submission to the CRTC is backed by a three-volume report, which sets out the station's in- tentions in programming, fi- nancing and technical mat- ters. The proposed outlet, which would be owned by Carleton University Students' Associ- ation, has the backing of the university's board of gover- nors. It has offered a loan for renovations and im- provements to the station's studios and equipment. Even now, the station has a professional look about it. It has two studios, a record library and equipment that Williams says is com- parable to what is used by the CBC The station manager, his assistant and the chief engi- neer are all paid, full-time employees. CKCU's application would not be a first. Queen's Univer- sity has operated AM and FM stations in Kingston, Ont., for some time. University of Sas- katchewan students in Saska- toon run a low-power FM sta- tion that can be picked up in most of the city. The estimated operation cost for the station in its first year would be Most of the money would come from review the university and the stu- dents' association but the sta- tion proposes to raise more than from the sale of advertising time. This part of the submission could cause trouble for the fledgling station, Williams says. A decision by the CRTC in July expressed concern that advertising may affect the quality of student-run radio. As a result, it decided to limit commercials to those that don't specifically promote a sponsor's products, plus clas- sified ads and information messages from non-profit groups. An official at the CRTC said he was impressed with the Radio Carleton set-up but it was a big step from a low- power AM outlet to an FM commercial operation. CKCU's brief is a detailed one, filled with considerable documentation and technical data. But buried in the brief is an example of student humor. In the biographical sketch of a member of the station's broadcast policy board are these entries: "Wired his own radio when eight years old. "Spent 14 years con- templating unobservable plan- ets for the purpose of higher communicational contacts." One might wonder how the CRTC commissioners will react to this unusual curriculum vitae. Rare Earth catches crowd by surprise By MICHAEL ROGERS Herald Staff Writer An explosion of musical talent took Lethbridge rock lovers by surprise Sun- day night at the Exhibition Pavilion and for almost two hours the crowd danced, shouted, stomped and nearly brought the house down. Rare Earth, from Detroit, put on one of the best rock per- formances Lethbridge has seen in a long, long time. The last group to display the same kind of talent was Tower Of Power. But the response given to Rare Earth went far beyond the response given Tower For Rare Earth and the peo- ple who went to see them it was a celebration. Rare Earth was there and the people were there and everyone, including the six-man group from Detroit, thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The energy, musical talent and showmanship displayed by Rare Earth was un- believable. As each member of the group took his turn on solo, it seemed as though they talked to their instrument. The lead guitarist did a solo reminiscent of the late Jimi Hendrix. The bassist literally made his guitar sing. The drummer's solo was incredible. When he could do no more with the sticks, he threw them to the stage floor and used his hands. The crowd went wild. Their music was packed with excitement and no room was given for the crowd to ease back aftei each number. Rare Earth just kept the songs coming. Some of the spectators were disappointed that Speedway, from Vancouver, were not at the concert. A "last minute Sam Hurry, from Los Angeles, came instead. Sam Hurry might have put on a better show if the lead guitarist hadn't overpowered the rest of the band. There was hardly any showmanship displayed and most of the musical talent came from the organist, who played organ, piano, flute, sax, trumpet and clarinet. Unfortunately, most of the time he and the bassist and drummer couldn't be heard.
