The aim, according to Crutcher, is to attract a different audience to the network. The look will be sophisticat edwith a set of oriental rugs, pol ished wood floors and French doors and the image will be "new country mmmsm (Continued from page 1-D) TNKs "Grand Old Opry Live" will mark the first time TV viewers have gotten a regular inside peek at the Opry since the radio show's debut in Four Opry shows have been broadcast live an annual event on ihe PBS network from 1978-81 but Jhe new series will feature the p.m. segment every Saturday night. Next week's opening show will be a jone-hour special, but following programs will be limited to 30 minutes.

"Basically we're going to eavesdrop on the Opry," said Keith Bilbrey, show Jiost and soon-to-be video's version of Grant Turner and the other Opry radio announcers. Bilbrey will be positioned in the Opry House balcony and will be giving home viewers the appropriate introductions as well as leading into and exiting from TV commericals Which, if all goes as planned, will be neatly synchronized with the Opry's radio ads. "It's going to be tight," said Bilbrey, who also is a radio deejay for WSM-AM radio. "But I have full faith in the producer. And with the Opry, you learn to take it as it is organized chaos." TON'S other new shows are: "Play It Again A nostalgic talkvariety series hosted by veteran country music deejay Charlie Douglas.

Each program will take viewers back in time to the top 10 country hits of a particular week in the past. Also featured will be a daily guest celebrity the singer of that week's historic Number 1 song. The not old-time country." AM "Country music is so much more Mwmmmimmm than hay bales and wagon wheels," said Crutcher, a former feature re Charlie Douglas On "Play It Again, Nashville" nightly, 30-minute show will debut at 5:30 p.m. Monday. A new week-night music video program hosted by Shelley Mangrum, former Miss Tennessee winner.

TNN's announcement that videos by less well-known acts, as well as tour information, will also be considered drew a round of applause from music industry promoters attending the preview party. The half-hour show debuts at 6:30 p.m. Monday. "Country TNN turns to "harder news" coverage of country music happenings in this weekly magazine-style show. Hosts Greg Crutcher and Janet Tyson say they're aiming at a fast-paced, high-energy show a la "Entertainment Tonight," but with a warmer, less high-tech approach.

Regular features will include Gerry Wood's critiques of albums and music videos (Wood is former editor of Billboard magazine and now Nashville correspondent for People magazine), and an "Insider's Viewpoint" a 90-second "editorial" by music industry knowledgeables. "Country Notes" also will include a porter for WIS-TV in Columbia, S.C Crutcher said he and Tyson, who both previously worked on "Wrap Around Nashville" with host Walt Adams, have been plugging a show like "Country Notes" for the past two years. Finally, he said, network man agement "bit" Tyson was production coordinator for WDCN-Channel 8 prior to joining the TNN staff in 1982. Fans of the old "PM Magazine" may remember her i consumer reports on that Channel 2 program. "Country Notes" debuts next Satur day at 1 1:30 am, with repeats at 4:30 and 6:30 p.m.

J. IN CONWAY, ARK. with the travel bureau for a seven- day cruise.

"You may make a donation to the travel bureau in our names. But re DIMMER member, attending our wedding is all the gift we really want" You may not agree with this ap By ABIGAIL VAN BUREN PEAR ABBY: The whole town is talking about two brothers, ages 9 and 11, who were suspended from using the school bus for five days because they created a disturbance on the bus. The boys' parents refused to drive them they made the boys walk 14 miles a day to teach them a lesson! Well, it got into the newspapers all over the nation, and the parents received phone calls from California, Wisconsin, Florida and Switzerland, from people calling to congratulate them The parents said they told their sons that if the type of behavior that got them kicked off the bus in the first place ever occurred again, they'd be walking for 10 days instead of five. The boys' father said he followed them in his car to assure their safety. Personally, I think making kids that age walk 14 miles a day borders on child abuse.

How do you feel about it, proach, Abby, but doesn it seem silly to get a lot of presents at our age when a wedding cruise would be more prac tical? DEAR As long as the boys were In no danger, I think the punishment fit the crime. I see no child abuse here. In my book, those parents care enough about their children to discipline them. They should be cloned not criticized. DEAR ABBY: I am 59 and the lady I am marrying is 50.

This is the second marriage for both of us. Both of our spouses are deceased. All our friends want to come to our wedding and they will probably give us gifts. Here is the problem We have two of everything two toasters, two steam irons, two blenders, and we do not need any more things. LONGING FOR THE LOVE BOAT DEAR LONGING: If a few of your close friends were to spread the news about the cruise, you would have smooth sailing.

But to insert a pitch for a cruise with your wedding invitation would be going overboard.
