BLUES TO OFFER PLAYOFF GAMES ON PAY-PER-VIEW BASIS

     The Blues are close to placing some of their home playoff
games on pay-per-view, according to Dan Caesar in this morning's
ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH.  Blues President Jack Quinn: "Yes, it
has been under discussion.  That's all I want to say about it
now."  Sources estimate the telecasts would be priced in the $15-
20 range per game.  Prime Sports GM Tim Griggs:  "We are going to
the cable operators formally next week."  Prime has the rights to
Blues home games for the first two rounds of the playoffs.  Most,
if not all, road playoff games would remain on KPLR-TV.  The pay-
per-view area would affect any homes in a 35-mile radius of the
Kiel Center.  Outside the area, the telecasts would appear at no
extra charge on the regular Prime channel.  Conference and
Stanley Cup Finals games would be on ESPN and Fox and would not
apply (ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH, 4/7).
