Network Stresses Serious Music During Summer Term

Student swing sessions, faculty interviews, and classical music programs feature the carefully planned schedule to which the Crimson Network expects to adhere during the twelve-week summer session. The Network intends to be on the air from 8 to 11.30 o'clock, Monday through Thursday.

Assuming that college students constitute a "different" audience, in that their evenings are generally taken up with studies, the Network is continuing its policy of supplying "music as a background for studying." A classical music period, one hour and twenty-five minutes long, is scheduled to begin at ten o'clock every evening.

In addition it is expected that the Network will broadcast daily a full hour devoted entirely to Music 1 students. These broadcasts will probably be heard between 8 and 9 o'clock, four times weekly, since they will trace the development of music from Mozart to the present, they will probably be of interest to the entire Network audience.

Faculty Interviews Planned

Faculty interviews, which met with considerable student interest last spring, will once again be heard twice weekly. The Network hopes to be able to interview a large number of the leading members of the summer school staff on subjects of national and international importance.

The most popular show put on by the Network last spring was the student swing contest in which George Frazier acted as chief judge while Count Basie and Jimmy Rushing "sat in" with the student swing group on a couple of numbers. With the cooperation of George Frazier, this sort of program will take place several times during the summer.

Also attracting large student audiences last year was the series of weekly Harvard Radio Workshop plays. Harold C. Fleming '44, director of the Workshop and dramatics head of the Network, announced yesterday that the Workshop intends to devote this summer's plays to descriptions of Harvard extra-curricular activity. The plays will be heard on alternate Tuesday evenings at 9.30 o'clock.

In addition to these planned programs, the Network expects to put on frequent special event broadcasts from points of interest in the Yard. Important speeches, dances, and athletic events will probably be brought into the students' rooms on all possible occasions.
