Gardner-Webb On The Air
Gardner-Webb CoUege has fUed
an application with the Federal
Communication Commission in
Washington, D. C., for a radio
station which would broadcast in
the college community and other
areas within a fifty mile radium.
Dr. J. Roy Robinson, Director of
External Affairs, is in charge of the
project and is very optimistic
about the F.C.C. approving the ap
plication. In an interview with the
Pilot he stated that the FM station
would provide a variety of
educational, secular, religious and
public service programs suited for
the students, faculty and the
general public. It will be a non
commercial Christian undertaking
with a definite purpose of not only
entertaining but also educating.
The expense of organizing the
station will be approximately
$25,000. This will include the
acquiring of transmitters, tape re
corders, control panels, micro
phones, and other needed equip
ment. Donald Lovelace of WAGI of
Gaffney has been instrumental in
planning for the prospective
station and will be chief engineer if
the station is approved.
The location of the station is
uncertain but is tentatively plan
ned to be hosed in the Hamrick
Building or the Alumni House. It
will be operated by the students.
Students interested in the
programming, production, engi
neering and management may con
