Hearing to open Oct. 29 OTTAWA (CP) -TheCana- dian Radio-Television Com- mission (CRTC) will open a public hearing here Oct. 29 to consider a new broadcasting policy for privately owned fre- quency modulated (FM) radio stations. It wants FM stations to give listeners more programs of a different sort than those broadcast by most privately owned standard or amplitude modulated (AM) stations. FM stations put out a signal that can only be picked up by radio receivers equipped for FM. Generally, the FM signal is static-free, better suited for good music, especially in ster- eophonic sound. All but three or four private FM stations in Canada are owned and operated as ad- juncts to AM stations. The CRTC wants them to separate program schedules and offer listeners distinct programming with more local talent employed. The CRTC also is discussing with the publicly owned CBC a new program policy for both its AM and FM services. The commission last year rejected a CBC proposal to revise its programming on the basis of two services to try to raise its listener ratings. The CRTC feared the CBC only intended to copy the more popular private broadcaster style. The CRTC says the FM band is not being put to its best use when FM stations carry programs virtually identical to those carried on AM radio. "Nor is the programming on FM with background music and little else, however desirable economically, a responsible use of this valuable frequency spectrum A clear, new role must be es- tablished for FM radio." Before the CRTC was set up in 1968. the old Board of Broadcast Governors (BBG) required FM stations to devote 20 per cent of air time to the arts, letters and sciences But since then, few FM sta- tions apart frqm the CBC's FM network have been clearly separated from their AM counterparts. The CRTC has turned down many FM applications because they did not undertake to give listeners a significantly new or different program. FM stations could carry competitive and lively programs which would fill a community need and attract big audiences, the CRTC says. It would like to see more lo- cal talent employed in meeting the selective needs and special interests of radio audiences. There were 92 FM stations on the air at the end of March this year, of which 14 were CBC owned. Thirty-five were in Ontario. 18 in Quebec and 17 in British Columbia, the rest spread thinly across the rest of Canada But it is estimated that 68 1 per cent of Canadian homes in September, 1972, had radios with FM bands.

He admits a mush-mouth' Critics don't bother Kottke By MICHAEL BENNETT CP Correspondent Leo Kottke's critics say his voice sounds as if it had been aged in an oak cash of South- ern Comfort. "People who are trained in voice say weird, mystical things like 'Now I'm going to resonate my sinus cavities' or 'I think I'll aim it at the roof of my mouth.'" says the 28- year-old singer, whose guitar style is as rich as the orches- tral ragtime of Scott Joplin on his stride piano "It's people like that who can't stand my voice It's my diction they hate, I'm a mush- mouth." The controversy over Kottke's vocal qualifications leaves him unmoved. "I really was never down on GE.NE KRLPV Jazz great dead at age of 64 YONKERS. NY.

N Y with Benny Goodman, whose band he joined in 1934 my voice. I always sang when I performed and my first album (only 1.000 copies were released on the Oblivion label) was mostly vocals." Then he sent some tapes to John Fahey, guitarist extraor- dinaire, owner of Takoma Records and producer of Kottke's Mudlark album. Fa- hey couldn't stand listening to him sing. Kottke managed to sneak in a couple of vocal tracks on Mudlark, leaving Fahey slightly apoplectic, mixed in a few more on Greenhouse, and by the time he finished recording My Feet Are Smil- ing, his singing was positively confident. "Singirf must be the most satisfyin' way of makin' mu- sic. You've got so much in- volvement. You can feel it in your stomach and in your head." His voice in conversation sounds like mellow summer thunder over Athens, Ga., where he was born. He grew up in Muskogee, 111., listening to people like Burl Ives and the Kingston Trio.

My mom went out and bought me a Gene Autry guitar and I really got into chords." Kottke was about 12 at the time and that particular gui- tar fell apart after two weeks of C-chords. It wasn't long be- fore he was travelling to country music festivals in Virginia. "Probably the person I've listened to and learned the most from is Pete Seeger He plays nice basic stuff, with enough of an idea thrown in now and again to show you how to work somethm' into what you're playing'. "I learned about how to use what you have, even if it's only a little bit. Records that he did like The Goofin' Off Suite were invaluable to me so far as learnin' how to play. "I still get hung up on little fragments of my own stuff." As a teen-ager, though, he was more interested in ban- mountain kind. Somewhere in there too was eight years on the trombone, ending at the annual pancake breakfast in Muskogee where he arrived to play without his horn "At that point.

The 'commission would monitor the effectiveness of the voluntary code, and would require broadcasters to con- firm their adherence to it when applying for renewal of a licence. The commission, after a series of meetings with various experts in the field, said it is convinced younger children are easily influenced by exaggerated claims and misleading techniques in advertising Because children lack maturity they should not be encouraged in television advertising to accept such products as medicines and vitamines as part of a normal way of life The CRTC also believed children identify strongly with authority figures or per- sonalities This trust should not be abused by permitting such persons to make com- mercial appeals to children. Under the code, a reduction in the number of minutes of advertising during children's programs came into effect Oct. 1. except for existing 1973 contracts The new code, which has been adopted voluntarily by members of the Canadian Association of Broadcasters will reduce to 10 minutes from 12 the amount of commercial time in each hour ELKS PUBLIC BINGO 1251 3rd AVENUt SOUTH EVERY THURSDAY 8 p.m. 16 GAMES NEW BLACKOUT Played Till Won (No Number Limit) Thursdays, October November and 15 IF WON ON A BLUE BONUS CARD (No Limit Purchased) PAYS DOUBLE No one under 16 years allowed PUBLIC ELKS AND INVITED GUESTS ONLY DOWNSTAIRS WEEKEND ENTERTAINMENT For Elkt and Invited Only Thursday, October 18th "CHEMO" Friday, October 19th "CHEMO" Saturday, October 20th "SUNSET 4" college cinema NOW SHOWING At p.m. UNSTOppAbU!
