Remember the contest by Akron's WONE (97.5-FM) where listeners competed for the most creative display of the station's call letters? Well, when Louisville's WDJX did the same thing, one of its listeners entered an arrangement of nine dead animals. The critters two cats, four squirrels, two possums and a chicken were wired to a board. Their forms spelled out WDJX. Nice touch, huh? The female contestant claimed her letters were "road kills," collected after they were flattened by passing cars. But the local animal protection agency, noting RADIO I7"TT I Bob f"f Dyer f MMMMiaHMMa that the animals were not particularly flat, didn't buy the story. She now has a Jan. 20 court date. And, no, she didn't win the contest. It's not unusual to see a beauty queen anchoring a television news broadcast. In fact, it's become a cliche. But a beauty queen in radio? Francine Kane, afternoon reporter for Cleveland's WERE (1300-AM), recently was named Ms. Black Ohio, thanks in large part to her showing in swimsuit and evening gown competitions. Somebody should tell her she's in the wrong medium. Danny Wright is bitter over his firing last month from Cleveland's WWWE (1100-AM), where he and partner Tom Bush were sandwiched between the ever-lovely Gary Doe and Bruce Dren-nan. "There was no advertising, no support. What did they expect?" Wright told the Beacon Journal. "Dee gets ratings on shock and Drennan has sports, and we're stuck in the middle." But the Akron-area resident says he regrets his forced departure because the off-the-air staff was "the best I've ever worked with" and that covers more j CHANNELS UPDATES Today Oft 12:301 AFC Playoff Houston Bjttalo'Live' TBA Legends ?Chafgers 5'iVomen News N8CNews World of Disnpy O Itc Be Announced ?NFLTod. 5 NFL Football.

The LP may not take that long to die. In the first half of this year, CDs in all categories of music outsold LPs for the first time, according to the Record Industry Association of America. The current Schwann record catalog lists more than 20,000 CD titles of all kinds, and retailers around the country are clearing out their LP bins to accommodate the explosion of CDs. But there are some in the record industry who fear that CDs have grown too quickly. What makes the record industry particularly nervous is that according to the Electronics Industry Association, only 15 to 20 percent of American households have CD players, and after five years of steady growth, player sales seem to have hit a plateau. Record companies say the vigor wiih which they have been issuing liolli new titles and back catalog on CD should attract those consumers who have not changed to the new format. But given the cost of CDs $!) to the retailer, $15 to the consumer for a full-price recording the quick expansion of t h catalog has led many retailers to lie more selective in their ordering. As a result, even the largest chains are no longer able to offer consumers the kind of full-line service they offered at the height of the LP era. A "CD glut," as many industry executives openly call it, has already hit the classical-music market, where current recordings of standard-repertory works are now forced to compete for consumers' attention with dozens of earlier versions. In pop, which accounts for the great majority of sales, the problem for the industry is that, as pop companies come closer to exhausting the back catalogs of their sujwrstars, they are starting to issue discs on CD that had only marginal appeal on LP. In both classics and pop, there is still consumer resistance to CD prices. The Only Choice. Brown Derby.

'(jirVC'S st There can only be fyS Restaurants At I Rest than a dozen stations. Kent's WKNT (1520-AM), which recently changed its music from country to pop oldies, is still trying to decide on new call letters to reflect the change. Its first choice, VVHTS, was taken by a ship. At one time, airplanes and ships pulled their identities from the same pool of letters as broadcasters. As it turns out, a ship given the WHTS identification decades ago is still afloat. It's a Coast Guard icebreaker. WKNT has had better luck with its morning man, Tom Culli-son, who has just been awarded the additional duty of program director, WMJI (105.7-FM) has guaranteed itself a listener for life. Ed Barrett of Brunswick won $100,000 in cash in the station's Majic Grapevine Game. WKSU (89.7-FM) will launch a new business show, Marketplace, on Monday. The half-hour, syndicated program will air week-nights at 6:30, immediately after Ail Things Considered. WKSU is touting the new show as a trail-blazer, saying it will be heavy on editorial comment and first-person reports. WKDD (96.5-FM) midday man Doc Reno recently signed a one-year contract for what he identifies only as "a sweet raise." The Doctor has gotten all the right numbers since joining WKDD just over a year ago his audience share of 9.7 in the most recent Arbitron book was good for second place among the midday voices, trailing only Howie Chizek of WNIR (100.1-FM). It reads much like the other help-wanted ads in the radio trade publications: Send a resume only "if you have five years of major-market experience, are a real entertainer and love to rock 'n' roll." But the opening is for afternoon drive-time at WMMS (100.7-FM) - a job that's been taken for the last 15 years. As was reported Dec. 16 (and rumored in this column in August), afternoon fixture Kid Leo quit to join a record company. He starts at Columbia Records this week.
