Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 29, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 6-THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD TuMday, Oetobtr 29, 1974 Four independent stations established Third Canadian TV network near Music gets credit for building city EDMONTON (CP) A third Canadian television network is beginning to take shape, with the establishment of independent stations in Ed- monton, Calgary, Winnipeg and Hamilton, says the vice- chairman of the Canadian Radio-Television Com- mission. Harry Boyle, in Edmonton for the CRTC bearings, would not.predict whether the stations would form a third formal network similar to the CBC or CTV. But he said the new indepen- dent stations and a revitalized global network in southern Ontario, in effect, constitute a third network. "They (the independent stations) naturally co-operate among themselves because they're outside the CBC and CTV and in competition with them." The stations currently exchange some programs. During an interview, in which he touched on several topics relating to Canadian broadcasting, Mr. Boyle said he is optimistic about the future of the global network in Ontario, which went broke after four months of operation. IWC Communications Ltd. has assumed control of Global under a refinancing plan. Some of Global's problems could not be avoided, Mr. Boyle said, citing as example the fact that when Global began Operating Jan. 1 Daylight Saving in the United States threw its program schedule out of whack. The network had pitted cer- tain programs in its schedule against those on American networks, but the time change moved all U.S. programs ahead one hour. When Global's initial ratings proved dismal', it scared otf advertisers and prompted critics to jump on the network, Mr. Boyle ex- plained. And when more favorable ratings were subse- quently released, it was too late to rescue Global from its financial woes. "Now it's in surgery. But it's not dead." BRIGHT FUTURE The future of Canadian broadcasting appears bright, he said. The major problem, however, is availability of .funds to develop the Canadian system in the face of American stations' growing access by cable. WHAT IS TRUTH?

Cable television now is available to 50 or 60 per cent of the population and the problem becomes more com- plex as this figure grows. Everybody wants to get into cable, but it cuts into coverage and advertising revenue of Canadian stations, said the CRTC vice-chairman. To ensure citizen access to television channels, the CRTC demanded that cable stations piping in programs from .the U.S. also provide a channel for community programming. Mr. Boyle said he has notic- ed a growing acceptance of this rule, adding that ethnic groups across Canada are tak- ing advantage of the com- munity programs. "I believe that as time goes on, signs are more encourag- ing that Canadians are becom- ing more conscious of their national identity." He said greater demands by cable owners for increased rates may be expected due to rising costs and the move by some owners to converters, which enable viewers to receive more than 12 channels on their sets. "Without making any value judgment on applicants for rate increases, many com- panies which started in 1968 are still licensed at those rates. "Considering that everything else has gone up since, that process should be examined." PUB MOVE LONDON (CP) A 16th century pub called the Lobster Smack, situated on Canvey Islarid in the Thames Estuary, may finally be moved so a new sea wall can be built. The pub appeared in the novel Great Expectations by Charles Dickens and was famous tor bare-knuckle fighting. By SYLVIA RECTOR .NASHVILLE, Tenn. Boom town, they call it. Not just here. Ask in New York or Los Angeles, where they're wondering how the hillbillies did it., The "hillbillies" know. They grin about it as their hard leather bootheels urge Cadillacs along middle Tennessee's hill country roads. They're heading out to Franklin or Hendersonville, where a discreet mailbox punctuates the end of a long curving drive leading to a ranch-style estate. Boom town, but not built on oil or steel. It's the city music built. The industry offices and recording studios hiding in- side a dozen blocks of con- verted wooden dwellings now rub shoulders with occasional glass and steel. And there's a new hotel on the corner across from the Country Music Hall of Fame. But there's no neon Music Row. And they still work in shirtsleeves. Downtown, from Capitol Hill over to the Cumberland River and beyond the apart- ments, Honkytonks squeeze together like those in most other cities of a half-million people. But this city's bloodstream and soui are different. OPRY MOVED OUT The Ryman, Auditorium, that red-brick Gothic womb of the Grand Oik Opry, stands around the corner from Toot- sie's Orchid Lounge, a former haunt of stars who stopped in to wet their whistles before the Opry curtains opened. But the Opry- moved out Briley Parkway to Opryland, U.S.A., a vast music "theme" park with acres of shows and amusement rides. With it went something special. The country-music aura downtown these days is only a ghost of its former self.

SECURITY INCOME FLEXIBILITY aura or no aura, million worth of country-music records were sold last year and more than 95 per cent of them were cut in Nashville. This city is sophisticated enough to play host to the Grammy awards and to allow big-name entertainers to come and go with little fan- fare. The tourists, out of place in their new, straw cowboy hats, still flock to Tootsie's to gawk at walls papered with thou- sands of celebrity pictures. The stars don't come in as of- ten but things haven't changed that much. PACE SLOWER The city's mood is slower than in New York or Los An- geles. That's part of its se- cret. "It's a good creative atmos- phere, like the Village in New York a few years ago or Paris in Gertrude Stein's observed Jerry Wood of the American Society of Com- posers, Authors and Publish- ers And Jerry Bradley, head of Nashville's RCA product, wouldn't leave. you take New York for example. I wouldn't even catch a plane to go there and record. The musicians come in and do their sessions and take their 10-minute breaks and come back and play some more And then they take the subway home. "Down here, all of us get together and put their heads together and throw in their own licks and we make a record.-All of us together. "I can remember when they could only do one session in this town at a time because there was just one string sec- recalled Bradley. The American Federation of Musicians local now lists members. TRIPLE 1969 FIGURE The recording sessions completed in 'Nashville in 1973 are roughly triple the 1969 figure. Fifty- two per cent of all singles produced in the world last year were cut here. In 1952, 81 radio stations programmed country music. Now stations have at least tow hours -of music each day. The swelling country tide is pulling Nashville with it. City fathers who copyrighted the nickname Music City, U.S. don't have to go far for justification: 57 recording studios, a half- dozen record-pressing com- panies and 34 talented agen- cies. Recording artists can cut records with more than 200 labels here, choose from 237 publishing firms and who knows how many record promoters. BARRIERS DROP One of the town's entertain- ment, kings seemed amused that country entertainers were being invited to the an- nual Swan Ball, a West Nashville social event which seemingly required a blood test for entrance. Blue. Green is good enough now. "They kinda changed their minds when they started see- ing all that money coming in he said. Tourists spent more than million in the metropolitan area last year. About 1.7 million thronged Opryland last year and the Grande Ole Opry itself brings in an average people every weekend of the year. How many people and how much money is the country- music industry worth? The state's department of economic and community development counts employed in recording, book- ing and publishing alone. That doesn't include promotion, trade magazines or any of the related industries. The department estimates gross receipts from-the in- dustry for the greater Nashville area at million annually. If this is a boom town, music is its fuse.
