NEW 8.8.C. STATION IN 1946

LONDON, July 20,

Catering only for highbrows, who like symphonies, operas and chamber music and long plays, a new station is to be established by the 8.8.C. in May of next year. . This is part of a reorganisation, of programmes which the 8.8.C. claims will be the most comprehensive service in the world. The 8.8.C. Director-General, Mr. W J. Haley, announced that new "home" and "light" programmes will replace present home and forces programmes on July 29. The classical station will be on long wave, which cannot be heard by listeners, who purchased the wartime two-station utility sets, until a special adaptor is fitted. The light programme will be for people preferring variety, thrillers, bands and comedians, and the home programme will steer a middle course.
