School TV Gets O.K. to Broadcast Monday

April 21, 1967

Spokane Daily Chronicle

Spokane Public Schools’ educational television station, KSPS, has been granted permission by the Federal Communications Commission to go on the air Monday without a preliminary test pattern if that is necessary, Dr. Albert L. Ayars, superintendent, said today.

He said contractors installing the antenna have assured him the job will be completed before Monday. Bad weather and icing on Tower Mountain have hampered the antenna work.

“It is possible we may be able to air a test pattern sometime tomorrow on Channel 7,” he said. “If this turns out to be impossible, we plan to go ahead with the programs scheduled for Monday.

“The trucking labor situation has resulted in the delay of 400 receiving sets from Portland. However, the 300 sets now distributed throughout the school system will permit us to operate the classroom instructional program until May 5, when the additional sets are scheduled to arrive.”

Monday’s schedule calls for a program on economics at 9:30 am. as the initial offering. There will be a musical program for classroom instruction of second- and third-grade pupils at 10:05 a.m. and a driver education program at 10:30; first-grade science at 11:05, third-grade science at 11:30 and second-grade science at 1:35 p.m.

At 1 p.m., “Spokane Indian Legends;” 2:30, space travel; 5, “The Planet Earth;” 6, “What’s New?;” 6:30, Japanese arts and crafts; 7, “The Busy Knitter;” 7:30, public affairs; and 8 to 10, drama.
