A Select Survey of Campus Radio Stations.
Drake, H.
To ascertain the continued need for a campus radio station at 10 watts and to justify a subsequent increase in power, the student radio station at Auburn University (Alabama) conducted surveys of college radio stations, emphasizing facilities in the southeast United States. Some of the findings of the surveys indicated that in the southeast and nationally most stations broadcast an appreciable distance from campus and most stations programed for nonstudents as well as for student audiences. The greater number of respondents in all regions indicated that increasing coverage area to serve nonstudent listeners as well as students was the prime rationale for power increases. In the southeast, the greater number of stations programed music for more than 75% of each broadcast day; news/talk represented less than 10% of each program day for the greater number of stations. Also in the southeast, the greater number of stations appointed their management and relied on part-time personnel for staff; financing was through a variety of means; and the three leading university department affiliations for stations were mass communication, speech, and radio/television.
