For more information, call the museum at 421-7340. nyder-to-Snyder chat probably didn't thrill WNIR Tom Snyder interviewed Tom Snyder last week. No, the late-night host hasn't run out of guests. The first Tom Snyder is a resident of the North Hill section of Akron who wound up on the other Tom Snyder's national talk show Tuesday night. The local Snyder works as an overnight control-board operator at Cleveland's WWWE - which probably made his guest shot less than a thrill for the executives of Kent's WNIR (100.1-FM), which also carries the program. Anyway, WWWE had picked up the syndicated talk show only two days earlier. The West Coast Snyder heard about the Midwest Snyder while the former was a guest on 3VE's afternoon show. The local fellow was on the air for about eight minutes. The thrust of the conversation was how astute 3WE had been in changing its overnight lineup. The more famous Snyder can be heard on 3WE from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. during the week. WNIR airs him two hours later. WWWE also has added Sally RADIO "i"""Vrl Bob Hff Dyer f I ,W iff. I Jessy Raphael at 1 a.m. . Incidentally, the program 3WE canned to make way for Big Tom Talknet's Bruce Williams will be picked up at the end of the month by WHK (1420-AM). WPHR (107.9-FM) has been engaging in some Rambo-style promotion. The Cleveland top-40 station is airing a spot urging listeners to compare the "Power 108" music to its competitors' by setting their buttons to WPHR, WMMS (100.7-FM), WMJI (105.7-FM) and WLTF (106.5-FM), and flipping back and forth. The promo accuses WMMS, through the lyrics of Neil Young, of "getting old." It rips WMJI for playing bubble-gum music, and accuses WLTF of being "boring." "Comparison shop," says the voice. "Punch around at will." The WPHR air personalities also have been trying to stir things up. A while back they were calling personalities at other stations and trying to spread the ridiculous rumor that country station WGAR (99.5-FM) and rock station WMMS were switching formats. In December, WPHR moved to Playhouse Square from its longtime home in rural Newbury. The station clearly is trying to prove it can go head to head with the big boys. Akron's WAKR (1590-AM) has sacked midday host Jerry Heckler. When Heckler came on board in February 1987, WAKR's audience share during that time slot was 7.3 percent. The figure dropped in each of the next four ratings books, finally bottoming out at 4.6. A victim of the numbers? "I think the direction we want to take the radio station has more to do with it," says WAKR Vice President Fred Anthony. "We just felt we'd do better with Bob Friend in that time position." Friend and his Dream Machine program have been a fixture during the evening, at least when there are no sports broadcasts. Because WAKR is carrying so much sports these days Cavs and Akron U basketball, mainly Friend almost has been a nonentity. Anthony says he hasn't decided on a replacement. The unceremonious demise of Heckler is unfortunate, because he's one of the nicer people in the radio business. WNIR newsman Mike Kelly is quitting his job at the end of the month to become assignment editor for Akron TV station WAKC (Channel 23). He certainly has the face to be behind the camera. Actually, Kelly is going backstage at least in part to escape his one-year non-compete clause, ose' dialogue, plot are full of thorns By Clifford Terry Chicaao Tribune "You're like a samurai sword," the top-dog CIA operative reminds his independent-minded protege. "You've been hammered and honed for years to cut through bone and steel. You don't use it to slice bread." Or to cut through the kind of dialogue that permeates Brotherhood of the Rose, a cliche-choked, blood-bathing miniseries based on the novel by David Morrell, who also has given us First Blood and Rambo III. Brotherhood will at 9 p.m. Sunday and Monday on WKYC (Channel 3), WFMJ TV PREVIEW (Channel 21) and Steubenville's WTOV (Channel 9). Robert Mitchum plays John Eliot, a career spook whose life is his work, and growing roses. He has adopted orphans Saul Gris-man (Peter Strauss) and Chris Kilmoonie (David Morse), reared them as brothers and trained them as killers who themselves become first-class agency operatives. (Their code names are Romulus and Remus; there is nothing subtle about this production.) Before long, it is obvious that something is amiss with the longtime relationship. Eliot, convinced that R&R are over-the-hill and thus expendable, assigns Grisman to eliminate five high-power industrialists and then sets him up as an assassination victim himself. Eliot's next step is to trick Kilmoonie into leading him to Romulus. Remus is wrongly accused of killing a corrupt KGB agent in a neutral safe house. For pure escapism, the convoluted plot has intriguing possibilities, but it can't get around the clumsy direction by mas- ter-of-the-middlebrow Marvin J. Chomsky (Inside the Third Reich, Peter the Great) or the stilted dialogue by Gy Waldron. The lumpen performances also don't help. Miniseries maestro Strauss swaggers through his role. Mitchum snoozes through his. The lethargic Morse (St. Elsewhere) is more of a bust than a Boomer. For romantic interest, there is Connie Sellecca (Hotel) as Gasman's one-time lover who's adept at flashing an Uzi and a little leg. The four hours are better suited for double-takes than double-agents. CHANNELS UPDATES 8:30 a.m. CD Shaker Square Host Helen Hams.

Pappas, a graduate of Revere High and Ohio State University, has worked for Columbus radio stations WNCI and WBNS. As was reported last week, WKDD (96.5-FM) program director Nick Anthony has quit the top-ranked Akron station and will begin the same job Monday at WWWE. Anthony will be reunited not only with former boss Harvey Simms, who's 3WEs general manager, but also morning news host Bob Fuller, who once toiled in Akron as Steve Fullerton. Fullerton was a news anchor and talk-show host at WHLO (640-AM) during the era Anthony had a talk show there. Anthony also hosted a talk show in Atlanta, and would' be well-qualified as a major-market host. Any way he'll go on the air? He can if he wants to, says Simms. No, thanks, says Anthony. ; Anthony should have plenty to keep him busy. After all, how would you like to be responsible for picking up after Gary Dee? Anthony claims he has no trepidation whatsoever about becoming Dee's boss. , 1 "I think Gary has the potential to be an even bigger star than he already is. All he needs is some coaching. Even (baseball star) George Brett, who bats .350, has a batting coach." j Michael Stanley is expanding his role at WMMS. Starting tonight at 8, he will have a weekly, one-hour Michael Stanley's New Review, dedicated to exposing new records. He'll also be heard Wednesday afternoons at 5:35 introducing his Pick of the Week. ! ' The odds are good that Bennie the Bookie's life has changed considerably since Jan. 10.
