RE: Was 103.5FM...now 'Memory Lane'

ZJust as I was starting high school back in 1994 we
got an entire system called Channel One.  It was a
kids news network that ran a 5 min news service that
came across a sat feed at 5 AM(we reran it at about
10:30).  The system allowed for any VHS tape to be
loaded into the player/recorder/decoder and played to
all the TVs in the school.  This allowed our video
production class to have a news and announcements
program everyday.  When i was a sophomore they
restructured the local cable system and allowed us a
cable access channel.  That was put under the guidance
of the high school...  We actaully, for a time and
with the help of an engineer friend of mine, turned it
into a cable radio station.  Well, that was until the
local radio station got angry and jealous and decided
they wanted to be ran on the channel.  That, i
believe, is against the FCC regs regarding a
commercial station(including spots) being ran on a
nom-profit cable channel...
