already decided that the station
format will not be primarily rock
music. "There are already a lot of
rock stations and rock music
doesn't sound good on AM
anyway," Reber said.
Bunting described the planned
format as block programming. "It
will try to encompass as many
different types of programming as
possible...it will be a rather
eclectic mix, containing music
and talk," he said.
Currently, the committee is
planning a format based on news
and talk shows. Tentative
subjects for the talk shows
include poetry readings, faculty
interviews, and the broadcast of
Behrend basketball games.
Reber said that the radio club,
previously associated with
WBCR, will play an integral role
in running the new station and
work closely with the manager.
The station will be located in
a new studio being built on the
first floor of the Reed Building._--
