WCBN bashes for funds

By Noelle Brower
GET READY for 88.3 hours of
the best in alternative radio
programming. Starting this morning
at 9 a.m., WCBN kicks off its seventh
annual on-the-air fundraiser. WCBN,
situated at 88.3 on the FM dial, is the
University's own student-run, cam-
pus radio station; it's also one of the
most daring stations around offering
a program list of alternative and
highly innovative music. And true to
its reputation for being an alternative
station, it is offering its loyal
following an alternative to most fun-

When public-supported radio
stations declare that it's fundraiser
time it usually means that their
audience is in for several days of
D.J.'s adlibbing and begging for
donations. Not WCBN. You won't find
the D.J.s at WCBN spending all their
time asking for money; you will,
however, hear the best in alternative
radio not to mention live on-the-air
acts and special location spots.
"For most other stations, fun-
draiser time is also the worst time to
listen. Ours is the best possible (to
listen)," says the station's Program
Director Paul Townsend.
The culmination of the fundraiser
will be the Benefit Bash on Sunday

night at the Michigan Union
Ballroom. Admission to the Bash is
$4, but if you pledge $4 or more your
admission is free. Pledges can be
made during the next four days by
calling 763-3501.
Aside from the good feeling that
will come from knowing that you have
supported your campus station,
premiums are attached to the
monetary donations; anything from
theatre tickets to books to free meals
could be yours with a donation. Of
course, the most popular premium of
all is the one for $10, the perennially
popular WCBN t-shirt. Most of WC-
BN's budget is determined by the
fundraiser proceeds - not University

support - so tune in and support your
radio station.
The following is a schedule of the
highlights of the fundraiser and Bash.

Co. presents


T HE BRECHT Company will open
their 1986 season with a produc-
tion of Bertolt Brecht's political
parable, The Exception and the Rule.
The company describes this debut as
the hard-earned product of an "inten-
sive series of dramaturgical
workshops" conducted under the
working methods and principles of
the German playwright.
Originally published in his Gesam-
melte Werke in 1938, the play is what
Brecht called a Lehrstueck - a lear-
ning piece. Director Bob Brown con-
strues this as a dialectical process,
one that brings both the audience and
the actors themselves to question
social and dramatic conventions.
Brown describes Exception as "the
droll tale of a journey, a murder and a
free flung trial." Brecht's plot ex-
plodes these familiar themes by
redefining the terms of what con-
stitutes a crime, and what is meant by
Brown says that the company striv-
es for what Brecht called Ver-
-emeungseffekt - the estrangement
effect. By overturning a dramatic
situation, the effect is said to move
the audience to a different, perhaps

strange, vision of their environment.
The Brecht Company will use
several innovative techniques in their
interpretation of Exception.
Dixieland clarinetist and composer
Peter Ferrar will perform an original
score that is a combination of
Dixieland and traditional jazz. By
means of masks, choral speaking,
and comic caricature, the ensemble
intends to "emphasize social process
over character."
Having just received a grant from
the Michigan Council for the Arts, and
plaudits from influential Theatre
magazine, the ensemble, explains
Brown, is delighted and optimistic.
The cast includes Martin Walsh,
Barbara Thorne, Franji Minwalla,
Mary L. Petit, Deborah Allen, Jeff
Safron, Annette Jagner, Jill Ackles,
Tom Charbonneau, and Sean Yar-
