They have every right to be excited, too. Such full-tilt-boogie hits as Neutron Dance, Automatic, Fire and Yes We Can Can have made them one of the most popular and successful trios in pop music. The three Oakland, Calif., natives will be at the Palace Theatre in Cleveland for an 8 p.m. performance Wednesday. For tickets and information, call 241-6000. DANCE Nureyev on Blossom stage How do you replace a Russian legend? With another Russian legend, of course. This curious situation will occur Wednesday when Rudolf Nureyev & Friends appear at Blossom Music Center in place of Mikhail Baryshni-kov & Company. Baryshnikov had to cancel his summer tour because of knee surgery. Nureyev, who now heads the Paris Opera Ballet, will appear in three of the programs seven works: George Balanchine's Apollo (music by Stravinsky), Maurice Bejart's Songs of a Wayfarer (Mahler) and David Parsons' Two Brothers (Stravinsky). Members of the Paris Opera Ballet also will be on tap to perform Nureyev's Act III pas de deux from Sleeping Beauty (Tchaikovsky), pas de deux from Don Quixote (Minkus), Bournonville's Flower Festival pas de deux (Paulli and Helsted) and Napoli pas de six ( Paulli and Helsted ). The program begins at 8:30 p.m. Only lawn, tickets at $10.50 remain. Tickets are on sale at Blossom, Severance Hall or by calling Teletron at (800) 362-0400. Blossom is at 1145 W. Steels Corners Road, Cuyahoga Falls. ART Watercolor florals ' - The Ohio Watercolor Society is sponsoring a Valley Floral Exhibition Wednesday through Aug. 31 at its gallery, 4717 Riverview Road, Everett Village, in, the Cuyahoga Valley National Recreation Area. The exhibit will feature the work of 15 water-, colorists whose paintings take flowers as their subject. An artists' reception will be held next Sunday from 1 to 5 p.m. All Ohio Watercolor Society exhibits are free and open to the public Wednesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 1 to 5 p.m. The gallery is closed Monday and Tuesday. For more information, call 657-2465.. Season finale at Eells Kent State University's Eells Art Gallery at Blossom Music Center will stage its final exhibit of the season with Communion by KSU sculptor Paul O'Keeffe Aug. 12-28. O'Keeffe, an assistant professor of art at the university, was reared in Ireland, and Communion can be viewed as a recollection of his Irish-Catholic heritage. Eells Art Gallery, operated by the KentBlossom summer art festival, is open Friday through Sunday evenings during scheduled performances of the Cleveland Orchestra, from one hour before each concert through intermission. Admission is restricted to concertgoers. For more information call the KSU School of Art Gallery at 672-7853. Whistler and more The Cleveland Museum of Art's newest print show, The View From Afar, Whistler & the Japanese Print, can be seen Aug. 9 to Oct. 16. Whistler, who was studying in France and England in 1858 (the year trade between Japan and the West officially began), was among the first to discover Japanese woodblock prints. Whistler's style and development were profoundly influenced by his discovery, and the exhibit's juxtaposition of 60 prints by him and the Japanese printmakers who inspired him makes this abundantly clear. For more information, call the museum at 421-7340. RADIO RADIO Adult Contemporary 9Z5-WDJQ-FM, Altera 102.1-WDOK-FM, Cleveland 570-WKBN-AM, Youngstown 600-WSOM-AM, Salem 930-WEa-AM, Byria 1040-WJTB.

If you haven't had the pleasure of wading through a 232-page Ar-bitron tome, you might not realize how many opportunities there are for a station to be No. 1 in something. In other words, study the book long enough and even the station portrayed in WKRP in Cincinnati starts to look like a winner. But if radio stations can't find enough encouraging news in the Akron book, they can always look to the north or south. Our area is unusual in that it contains three distinct but overlapping radio markets. Last week we told you that WKDD (96.5-FM) dominated the Akron market (Summit and Portage counties) in the newly released spring book. Here's a quick look at the action in the area's two other markets! The biggest story in Canton Stark and Carroll counties is the downfall of WHBC-AM (1480), which has been dropping from favor faster than Manuel Noriega's cosmetologist. In the fall of 1985, WHBC-AM earned a gargantuan 20.4 percent audience share and buried its competition. But following, another, more modest win, the longtime Canton leader lost three consecutive books to its sister station, WHBC-FM (94.1). has fallen all the way to fourth, behind not just WHBC-FM but WDJQ (92.5-FM) and WQXK (105.1-FM), which tied for second. The biggest increase came at Filming completed on 'Firecracker' Npw York Times Principal photography pn the Corsair production of Miss Firecracker, based on Beth Henley's Miss Firecracker Contest, has been finished in Mississippi. The film, scheduled for release in late winter or in the spring, stars Holly Hunter, Mary Steen-burgen, Alfre Woodard, Scott Glenn and Tim Robbins of Bull Durham. In Miss Firecracker, Hunter's character enters a Miss Firecracker contest in a small town in Mississippi on the Fourth of July. She desperately wants to win, but she triumphs at the end without winning. r V- ... Jf' mi I THE Sunday & Monday August 7 and 8 Shows at 8:00 and 10:30 a5 f. CHICK COHEA August 10 FATS OOfkllHO ....

August 21 AND THE TONIGHT SHOW ORCHESTRA ASK ABOUT OUR DINNER SHOW PACKAGES , -,, fe?i WiTiV Fikm r Bob HM Dyer f WRQK (106.9-FM), which boosted its audience share by 35 percent and finished fifth. Meanwhile, in Cleveland Medina, Cuyahoga, Lake, Geauga and Lorain counties it's the same broken record: WMMS (100.7-FM) wins its 19th consecutive book. , But the Buzzards weren't flying nearly as high as usual. After grabbing a 12.5 share of the audience last fall and 12.4 during the winter, they plummeted to 10.0. WMMS' margin over second-place WQAL (104.1-FM) thinned from 2.4 points to 1.1. Third-place WMJI (105.7-FM) also gained ground, finishing just 1.2 points back of WMMS. The biggest jump by far came at WWWE (1100-AM), the news sportstalk station where all hell broke loose this spring. With unending controversy during the day (Gary Dee's verbal assaults on public officials, Fig Newton's kiddie porn flap) and the then-hot Cleveland Indians at night, 3WE gained nearly three points and finished fourth with an 8.2 share. The rest of the best: WLTF (7.4), WZAK (7.0), WNCX (6.2) andWGAR(6.0). B Speaking of numbers, an advertisement purchased by WNIR (100.1-FM) in Thursday's Beacon Journal can be described most charitably as misleading. "Akron's New 1 adults 25-54 and more!" trumpeted the ad, in gigantic block . letters. Well, not exactly. The new Arbitron book shows WNIR in fifth place, be hind WMJI, Akron's WKDD, Akron's WONE and WMMS. If you get out your magnifying glass, you might be able to read, the tiny type at the bottom of the ad, which says: "M-F 6A-10A, M-F 10A-3P." But even with those rather massive qualifications, WNIR still is incorrect: Both MJI and WMMS finish higher in the mornings. WNIR, it seems, doesn't count stations that broadcast from Cleveland even though "The Talk of Akron" broadcasts from Kent. The lilting voice of WKSU (89.7-FM) morning announcer Bonnie Grice will be silenced temporarily as she swaps jobs with Beacon Journal fine-arts critic Don Rosenberg, On Wednesday morning, her review of the Ohio Light Opera's production of Ruddigore will appear in the newspaper. After you read it you can tune in Rosenberg, who will be hosting Ms. Grice's classical-music show from 8:35 a.m. to noon. Readers and listeners may be comforted to know that this is a bne-day-only deal. . After Ward Holmes guided Canton's WRQK from a 5.3 audience share to an 8.6, he promptly headed for the hills. Make that the mountains. Holmes has departed for Rocky country, taking a job in Steamboat Springs, Colo. He loaded up the wagon train a week ago to take the job of general manager at album-rocker KFMU. "We'll miss the area terribly," said Holmes, who also programmed Akron's WONE (97.5-FM) for the first three years it was on the air. "My wife' and I have never felt as at home in a place before. It hurts to leave the best damn rock 'n' roll market in the world." But, he said, an op- in,; : . ! f I A " ': If'" . ! Bonnie Grice portunity to call his own shots was too much to pass up. Send this man to geography school . . . Dave Milo, holding down the fort on WAKR (1590-AM) one recent evening, was talking about the Cleveland Indians' itinerary. After correctly noting that the team would be traveling "down" to Anaheim from Oakland, he corrected himself: "Or, I should say, they'll be traveling up to Anaheim.", Former Clevelander Don Imus can add still another honor to his sterling resume. The New York shock-jock has been named one of "the 10 raunchiest radio personalities in America" by the August skin publication High Society. The magazine, which quite rightly claims it is ideally qualified to judge raunchy material, also anoints Scott Shannon, morning man for WMMS' New York sister station, WHTZ. The 10 honorees are profiled in an article in the September issue. And surely people buy High Society for the articles. . . . f J 1 L 1 Tl IT V How to turn a paper plate into a $19.95 dinner for two.
