KPFK P rogram Folio Page 3

As a listener-sponsored station, we are free from the normal restric-
tions and inhibitions of commercial radio. We attempt to discharge
our special responsibility to the people of the Southern California area
with vigor, intelligence, imagination and hope — hallmarks of a vital
pr^ent and a worthwhile future without which a station such as ours
would have no excuse for being. We try to be different in a way that
makes a difference to the cultural life and political health of our
C( immunity.

Our approach to broadcasting is more permissive than restrictive,
more bold than cautious, and more naive than cynical, because we
believe that these attributes hold the secrets of growth and true wisdom.
We choose to focus on the positive aspects of our freedom; what we are
freed for, rather than what we are freed from. We recognize four basic
freedoms :

FREEDOM TO SERVE • By tapping the creative resources of our
own community, we give a hearing to deserving, but unknown, literary
or musical talent; we provide a forum for a full discussion of local,
national and international affairs; and we serve Southern California by
being an active participant in its cultural and intellectual life. In our
children's programs, we are free to offer entertaining and educational
listening without soliciting boxtops.

FREEDOM TO EXPLORE • In our public affairs broadcasts and
special reports, we are free to probe beyond the superficial level to those
greater depths and higher strata where the rarer gems of truth are
found. Our programs are designed to stimulate our listener, and are not
necessarily confined within the brackets of any pre-set time periods.

FREEDOM TO INNOVATE • By broadcasting original plays, special
interviews, and other types of programs not yet conceived of, we are
free to create new formats and recombine old ones, so that radio can
achieve its rightful status as a provocative and intimate communicative
medium. We can afford risk wtihout fear of the consequences on a
popularity rating scale.

FREEDOM TO CHALLENGE • Our view of current happenings and
long-term trends in the community and the world can be fresh and
insistently honest, equally free to challenge the dogmas of the avante
garde or the traditionahst, the intellectual or the anti-intellectual, the
happy few or the complacent many, as the occasion requires. We frankly
admit our prejudice — against the pretentious in any form or walk of
life. Sacred cows find no sanctuary in our studios.
We have no commitments other than to these ideals.

A discussion on the responsibilities of the broad-

gram policies, and philosophy apart and more or
less reassembles it. If you can't hear it all, this
is one you can pick up part wa^^ through and
still enjoy. Participants are Michael J. Kane, di-
rector of Art Linkletter's "House Party" on
CBS-TV and executive vice-president of the Di-
rector's Guild of America; Harold Fishman,
political scientist and KPFK commentator, who
has some ideas about Federal regulation; and

PACIFICA DIRECTORS' AWARDS

We are proud to announce our Directors' Awards for Original Composition in
Music. A sum of money especially donated for this purpose by a member of the
Board of Directors of Pacifico Foundation, and supplemented by other donations,
allows us to offer three prizes with the assurance of well-prepared performances
of music.

Conditions of the competition ore simple. Any American composer, regardless of
age or professional status, is eligible. Only chamber compositions for mixed instru-
mental ensembles of from three to eight performers will be accepted. The composi-
tions should be no shorter in length than ten minutes nor longer than twenty minutes,
and should rtot have been professionally performed. These conditions are designed
to encourage composition for combinations of instruments more imaginative and
colorful than the standard media. It is hoped that composers will want to write that
piece which under other conditions might have seemed impractical. The contest
closes on September 30.

The judges for the Awards will be three distinguished musical Americans: Robert
Craft, conductor; Alfred Frankenstein, critic; and Roger Sessions, composer. Three
prizes of $300 each wilj be awarded. These winning compositions, and as many
other entries as ore judged worthy, will be performed in public concert in Berkeley,

and recorded for distribiitionr to KPFK and WBAI.

J

Competitions in the arts are commonplace these days. But Pacifico stands in a
unique position: with its three independent stations it con offer the composer, known
or unknown, a well-rehearsed performance under near-ideal conditions, for as
discriminating an audience as he could find. We hope also to return a courtesy
extended us by a number of foreign radio stations, and offer recordings of these
concerts for broadcast abroad. These considerations moke the Directors' Awards in
Music an important event in Pacifico Foundation's history.
