I have been paid as a sound projectionist on several occasions. I seem to
recall that there was some payment during ->PERSPECTIVES->->, the CEC 1991
Electroacoustic Days (KA?), and that the Montreal group ACREQ has in the
past (and in the present?AT?) paid its performers, be they on the stage or
behind the mixing board. The usual amount is somewhere between 50 and 100
dollars.

Paul, please feel free to forward this message to the CBC.
