Index 1972 Scrapbook
Open scrapbook to 1972.
During the spring of 1972 Pam Buckway and Jim Schneider worked together to
provide updates on the Alaska Dog Mushers Association championship races. Stories
were provided not only for KUAC but also to rural stations via the Associated
Press wire service. In recognition of this effort the ADMA
sent this packet to the station.
In any organization like KUAC, which relied heavily on student announcers
to "work the board," communication with the staff could be problematic.
Students signed up for Broadcast Operations, a one credit course whose main
requirement was work 1 three hour board shift each week (students also had to
pass the FCC Third Class Radio Telephone test during their first semester).
Since it was difficult to assemble all of the students on a regular basis for
meetings due to class schedules information of import was distributed by an
in-house publication called, at various times, the Monday Maybe, Tuesday Tardy,
Wednesday Weekly and Friday Finally. If there was a Thursday edition ye editor
can't recall the name. In anycase, here
is a sampling of those news letters from 1972. Please note that although some
issues contained a "Sick Joke of the Week" (usually a well contrived
pun) those issues are not included here to protect the innocent.
And for nostalgia buffs, here
are some pictures of the equipment used in KUAC-FM productions.
