Another KVCR Survey from 1972 plus

KVCR 10-7-72  Thank you again for your contribution!
Hi Doug,
Here’s the next one, again quickly typed up and only intended for in-station use. No station letterhead. I don’t think we had a new one every week, and perhaps this explains the absence of “Last Week” entries. Of interest is the reference to “album”, the earliest such reference I’ve ever seen and perhaps the very beginning of Album Oriented Radio (AOR). Of course all these songs were on 45s, but later in the year we had a few actual album cuts put on tape cartridges (carts).

And just for comparison KMEN and KFXM surveys

KVCR-FM management banned "My Ding-A-Ling".

NO KIDDING, KVCR's head honchos actually banned that hilarious record by Chuck Berry -- a reissued song performed live and a Number One chart-maker.

Kinda makes ya wonder how Valley College's FM-station "management" would have reacted to George Carlin's "Seven Words You Can Never Say on Television"... Now there's where the poop would have really hit the fan!

KVCR-FM has been all primarily NPR for quite awhile. Back in the 60's and 70's (and maybe later) it provided modest radio broadcast exposure for SBVC students. When did it eliminate broadcast dj "shifts" for SBVC students? Does SBVC still teach radio or is it limited to TV now?

"NPR" has been the cold death of countless formerly great college/university FM radio stations throughout the United States which used to have live DJ's, locally programmed music, public affairs, news, sports, etc., along with providing s superior venue for training future broadcasters.
The same goes for academic TV stations which have been taken over by the notorious PBS and it's bourgeois programming!
