(Continued From Page Four) r sible. So far as it can be learned, Mutual is the first to offer to broad~ast any of the 1951 festival coucerts. It is understood that the board of directors of the festival unanimously approved the proposals of Mutual, as secured .b y WPNF, and expressed gratitude for the work that local radiomen are doing to publicize Brevard and Transylvania from coast·to-coast. Regarding the two programs, Mutual has agreed to pay all costs, which are estimated to be around ~OO. It is also stated that in line with the policy of radio broadcasting, no mention was made by ;"Iiu!ual conceming the exclusive rights for sustaining programs. The industry practice, it is understood, is that unless programs are bought and paid for, no exclusive agrecments should be made. WPNF officials have pledged their support and cooperation with Ithe camp and festival for "it is our policy to cooperate with and tv. boost everything that is for the betterment of Brevard and Transylvania county," President Anderson declared.




In addition to securing the Mulual proposal of two coast-to-coast broadcasts of the 1951 festival, l'resident Anderson has stressed the fact that the facilities of the local radio station are again at the service of the camp and festivaL "During the past years we have originated a large number of programs from the music camp which ~ave been carried across North C;lrolina and into parts of South ea.elina," Mr. Anderson com· mented. One of the greatest values or the music camp and festival to Brevard and Transylvania county is publicity in the press and over the air and this newspaper, as I well as WPNF, has cooperated to ['chieve those objectives. Last year Mutual's offer to broadcast at lellst one of the festival concerts was rejected on the grounds that Exclusive network broadcast rights or festival programs had been given to CBS, which actually carried two programs, <:Ine on a Saturday afternoon and one on Sunday. This season it is understood that the policy of the festival will be to get as many of the concerts broadcast as possible.
