Network to Broadcast Home Football Games
With the return of its staff and with the addition of technical improvements, the Crimson Network will return to the air with regular weekly evening broadcasts starting Tuesday night, September 24.
Silent over the summer, the Network is laying plans for its seventh year of operation and is contemplating Freshman interview broadcasts from Memorial Hall at registration, coverage of all home football games, and extension of its services to the Yard halls and graduate halls. Under present conditions, the Houses and Stillman Infirmary are the only units served by the network.
Programs planned call for the usual classical and popular music hours, news, and continuation of the radio workshop, which does original dramatic features. Broadcasting will start every evening at 7:30 and remain on until 12 o'clock. The Network's call letters are WHEN and can be heard by tuning in at 800 on the dial.
Visitors to be Interviewed
An additional project this fall contemplates broadcasts of the Law School Forums, where prominent public figures debate topical world and national problems. Famous visitors to the University will be interviewed when they are available.
Working in conjunction with the Radcliffe station, WRAD, the Network sends out its programs over the electrical wiring system and cannot be heard except in the buildings which have been especially prepared for this type of broadcasting. In its first year, programs were sent out on the steam heating pipes, but it was found that the waves were going well beyond the legal limit of the station's license, and the electrical wiring method was adopted.
Competitions for the technical and production boards will be open to all members of the college early in the fall term.
