another type of contrast. For exam-
ple, a sample of Schietinger's set
from one of his freeform shows
includes British electronic, reggae,
'50s soul, ambient electronic, folk,
lounge and then instrumental hip-
"I think it's an important position
that freeform DJs have. Because
there's so much music in this world
that to put it in a certain order is
totally unique to you ... I can put
music in the right context to make*
it sound differently than it would
otherwise," Schietinger said.
The DJ can also play the
freeform game by using consisten-
cy in the order of songs.
"I'll arrange five or six tunes that
will make a beautiful transition
from one kind of music to another
by way of like 'they're all com-
posed by one person' or 'they're all
from people- who lived in the same
town.' Some sort of connection in
the music that goes beyond the
notes," Ilgenfritz said.
With all this heavy talk of the
craft of the disc jockey and the art
in presenting music in freeform,
some people may find WCBN's for-
mat to be esoteric.
"I don't want to say it's for a
more select few, but there are fewer
people that are able to identify with
it immediately," admitted Ilgenfritz.

However, he continued, "As a col-
lege radio station goes, our listener-
ship is enormous. But it's not the
kind of level as the kind of radio
stations that play pop or any other
single format type of thing."
Although WCBN has received
praise by magazines such as
Rolling Stone for its freeform for-
mat, the station has gotten criti-
cism as being a heavily leftist
station that does not play what the
students want to hear.
Schietinger counters the critics
by answering, "I don't think it's the
station's responsibility to pander
and give people what they can hear
anywhere else. It's whatever the DJ
wants. It's not about playlists ... Do
you want all the movie theaters to
be showing the same movies? Not
everybody wants the same thing."
With its non-profit and non-com-
mercialized orientation, it's easy to
understand that money is tight at
WCBN. If you ask to see a picture
of Bill Cosby's visit to WCBN
when he first started touring col-
lege radio stations to begin his
comedy career, you'll notice that
the walls and design of the station
then are identical to today's.
"It would be nice to have a new
studio, but to be surrounded by the
things that people saw when. they
came here years ago is nice. It real-
ly gives you a sense of being a part
of a tradition," said Inglefritz.
WCBN pulls in most of its

1,700-seat main theater is home to several perform-
ances each year, always with a diverse lineup of enter-
tainers from Phillip Glass to Travis. What separates
the theater from its rivals is its delicious popcorn
made with real butter and salt. A large bucket of the
traditional movie snack costs only $5.
Recent renovations have transformed the historical
theater back to its grand beginnings, as the box office
and marquee have been updated to more closely
resemble the early days of the landmark theater.
Just a few yards away from the Michigan, the State
Theatre on the corner of Liberty and State is another
campus movie house frequented by students. With
only two screens, the State doesn't offer the selection
of Showcase or Quality 16, but often features inde-
pendent films too small to be found at its bigger com-
Midnight on Saturday can often be the busiest times
for the State Theatre, as they show modern classics
like "The Big Lebowski" and "Pink Floyd's The Wall."
The theatre is showing its age by its busted and bro-
ken seats, but the theatre is making strides by recently
improving their sound system. Of all the theaters in
the area, the State Theater has the most courteous
For those who have a hard time spending eight
bucks on a movie, the Village Theater on Maple Road
offers tickets at the cost of a meager $2. Only problem
is the movies at the Village Theater are about six
months old, but for those who missed popular films
the first time, it's the ideal venue for repeat viewings.
Depending on your taste in movies, the five theaters
in the Ann Arbor area offer the best from Hollywood
to the independent circuit. In a town full of eclectic
tastes, students find a range of options for their
movie-going experience.

money from listener donations and
raised about $27,000 in donations
last year alone. "It always comes
down to 'people that love what we
do' is what keeps us going,"
explained Inglefritz.
But the future of the station isn't
made certain by the listener sup-
port. There has been talk by some
record companies to start charging
stations like WCBN royalties for
the songs they play. "That could
really hurt WCBN because we
don't have the money to pay," said
