Proposal for Implementation of Office of Educational Radio Services.
Petrizzi, David M.; Wright, A. J.
Auburn University's radio station is being faced with providing quality public radio programing with inadequate resources, including money, personnel, and university support. This proposal is directed to the university community and discusses the university radio station's problems at three levels. At the federal level, concerns relate to demonstrating community service, paying for frequency changes as a Class D station when higher classes begin local operations, adhering to minimum operating hours when averaged over a whole year, and mandatory time sharing for less than 72 operating hours per week. On the state level, the primary concern is with crowding of the frequency bank in Alabama, while being locked into a fixed power output. Problems at the local level deal with organization and management difficulties. The proposal describes the needs and goals of public radio in general and offers recommendations and objectives toward improving Auburn's public radio station. (DAG)
