WUOM To Use
WUOM,' the University radio
station, will open its ninth year
of Michigan sports coverage this
fall with the institution of an im-
proved, streamlined system of
broadcasting home football games.
With the use of the facilities of
the newly constructed press box
at the stadium, WUOM will be
able to do away with the annoy-
ing cluster of microphones in front
of the band and the numerous
field and crowd mikes.
A pool system will be used this'
year, employing only one sensitive
parabolic microphone atop the
press box and one band mike.
These will be installed and oper-
ated by WUOM, but will serve all
the stations broadcasting the
Football broadcasts this season
will be carried by a total of 20 sta-
tions throughout Michigan, in-
cluding the University's own
WUOM and WF(UM.
Local sportscaster will be Bill
Stegath of WUOM, aided by sta-
tistician John Sargent, spotter
Bill Carey, color announcer Ed
Burrows and three engineers.
In addition to the play-by-play
broadcasts, WUOM will air a
weekly 15-minute program, the
Wolverine Sports Report, which
will feature rebroadcasts of excit-
ing play-by-play highlights of last
year's game with the same oppo-
nent. This is scheduled for Fri-
days at 4:45 p.m.

Rather the modern artist has
utilized the scientific phenomenon

both by artists and public as one
