Therefore, seven, a great deal of the yoimg people are staying home evenings and listening to their music and making their dedications to friends, lovers, and even "Mom." So, they are not "crulsin" and using up precious petroleum distillates such as gasoline and motor oil thereby contributing to a "solution," however minor, to the energy crisis. Good idea, huh, energy czar William Simon? Beats Nixon Daylight Time. Seriously, the 9-10 p.m. rock music show hosted by KHBT's version of "Wolfman Jack" Ed Campisi has become an overnight sensation among the local young listeners. The program is the product of cooperation between Fox and KHBT and this cooperation has gotten a new listening audience, the young people, for the usually straight, "easy listening" local station. Response to the program has been terrific, according to Fox, which has caused Fox as a sponsor, and the radio as the medium to consider expanding the program to get In more of the mountains of requests. "After only 10 days the response and acceptance of this program has been most gratifying," Fox said. "The mall Is pouring Into KHBT thanking them for the program, The store Is getting phone calls from young and old alike, or people stop in, to ., "The ntairttgement df KMBT •hai ftfrsatfy expressed the need ta expand the program and w&«jn«ur," he continued, "In fact, the only complaint about the pfegram is that it is too short. 1 '. Fox and "assistant disc jockey (Dj)" Rocky Lee Indicated the "song-phone" at world of Music Is constantly ringing during the program. "The calls are so heavy," Lee said, "that less than 20 per cent of the calls are getting through. The phone is busy straight through the show." To prove the point, Lee Indicated when he hung up the phone there would be a call in three seconds. We didn't believe so told him to "hang It up," (the phone). Click . , , one .. , two . . . RING. ' He proved his point. Fox believes two things are needed to Irisure the success of the program for its- large, county-wide audience. "The pfogram needs to be lengthened; to allow, the people to get their requests In," he said, "and we have got to limit requests to the current Top 40." Currently/the program Is taking requests for any tune for people who call the song-phone at ,832-4605. This means World of Music is breaking album seals to pick out one track; for alr-play. "This Is too!costly," Fox explained. "We Are opening two or three Albums per nlgftt to play Just one song. And, — TZ — r»T"™ *"*** r i** V **ITOIII oflu svill aft? to that ssitttteit.

Lee said he is not surprised anymore when a caller makes a thank<you remark or some other positive comment on the program. Contests are another important part of the rock.music program. Fox is offering a free stereo album by the late Jim Cfoee for the post card from the furthest distance which was postmarked by midnight Friday. The Humota theatre is also giving a couple passes away per night for winners of the "Mystery Record" phone-In, A contest is also underway to choose a name for the radio show with the prizes yet to be decided, During Thursday night's show, six HHS students stopped by to leave personal requests. "We've tried to call in for four nights but couldn't get through," one girl said. Before they left they dedicated a song for a friend who had just "escaped" the hospital, The "disc-spinner" is KHBT regular Camplsl who obviously enjoys the new sound on the Chrlstensen Broadcasting Co, station, "It's certainly a lot different from playing the straight, felWylfctenfng mUsfe,* &im\H ^<^n% lift* A||w|^ftlmf "fl^fln*" 0 slid, albums »Mte afrw 1 /! ffjffi. ftotsefljlap He admits falwitmMM}* rt fttt*is*l^%uilfi*lbt; feiMMMftg** dot t» tfci, ehsnife HI nitrate '. , / " ' ' j don't knew ifl the tffnti wMl entragh te get j fertjtf said. . year-old DJ todfc* ted I nnmbef of his etu#> • listening songs are also top io such as oriel by Charlie Rich, Bartea Streisand or Awd> Wtttlmu, Calling the format & "good change," Campisi.said, "the young people really tike it and that's what's Important." Unlike some rock DJs, Camplsl fin't well-known, "I'll bet we could sponsor a contest, outside of my friends and relatives, that no one would know what I IdoH like. We could offer a trip to Rome or Bermuda and nobody would win It. I kind of like it that way 'cause I'm sort of an Introvert." Well, when a rock fan mentions "Sleeker Street," he thinks of the Little Rock, Ark. show's former DJ, Clyde Clifford, and most everyone knows who LA's "Wolfman Jack" is. (Don't they?) Maybe, someday, Campisi will have his day of fame in Humboldt County. There's also not much "platter chatter" on the show. "I believe in less talk and more music like it should be," he commented. "Most DJs don't feel that way, but I like the music and not the patter, so does the audience." As he talked Camplsl was busy shuffling records, check- Ing his requeit sheet, cueing up records and hushing Incessant questions with "stand by," and escaping via his microphone.
