(AP) - Ron "Chancey doesn't mind being the man in the background who listened to 1,000 songs before picking "Elvira" for the Oak Ridge Boys to record. Chancey, the group's producer, heard "Elvira" and urged the dynamic quartet to record it. They did, and the song sold 2 million copies and won a Grammy Award and other accolades. The 46-year-old Chancey says modestly that he's content to remain quietly in Nashville and produce more hit records, while the pop-country group enjoys the laurels of stardom. . "They pay the price for that (recognition)," the sandy-haired executive said in an interview in his second story Music Row office. "I go out with them on tour once every six weeks or so and it makes you appreciate what they go through." As a record producer, he picks the material to be recorded, hires the backup musicians, works out the basic arrangements for the songs and then supervises the recording session. Chancey, who also was the producer for the group's current hit "So Fine," listens to "a couple thousand songs" to find the 10 or so for each album, and the two or . three of those 10 which will be released as singles. "I get my 20 favorite and then meet with them, and 95 percent of the time we agree on the same songs," he said. "We try to be open minded about the material we want songs with single potential. "If one of the five of us hates a . song, we won't do it," he said. "If four of the five really like it and one doesn't, we'll keep playing it until we make a decision." A song such as "Elvira, " he said, "comes along once in a lifetime." "It was on a tape with six or seven others and it stuck out," he recalled. "I played it for them and we felt pretty good about it. But we didn't know it would sell 2 million. "It was a sing-along song and kids two-, three-, four-years-old liked it and so did old people. People come up to me and say, 'I've got a nephew or I've got a three-year-old and it's the only song he sings.' The 'oom pawpa mou mou' gets to them. " In his quest for hits, Chancey says he looks for songs with strong chorus, four-part harmony, a pop-country flavor and something the general public can sing. el u NEW WATER HEATERS Have it! j Save with a new as water heater LEEP SUPPLY 1543 HIGHWAY AVE.

INSIDE HOLLYWOOD Ex-Disney whiz has own philosophy Audiences feel differently about animated feature films than about live action ones, claims Don Bluth, producer of "The Secret of NIMH," an action fantasy in classical animation set to be released in July by MGMUnited Artists Distribution and Marketing. The Aurora presentation is Bluth's first animated film since he and partners Gary Goldman and John Pomeroy left Disney Studio with a handful of animators nearly three years ago. The story of a widowed mouse who seeks the help of a mysterious, advanced civilization of rats to save her family, features the vocal talents of Elizabeth Hartman, Dom DeLuise, Peter Strauss, Derek Jacobi, John Carradine, Hermione Baddeley, Arthur Malet and Paul Shenar. "Audiences react more strongly to animation than to live action films," Bluth says. "For one reason, they feel less threat in identifying themselves and people they know with characters than they feel with human actors." Another reason, he says, is probably that Swit to star HOLLYWOOD (AP) - Sam Waterson and Loretta Swit will star in the CBS movie "Games Mother Never Taught Me." Waterson plays the artist-husband of a career woman (Miss Swit) who learns the hard rules of corporate gamesmanship when she invades a previously all-male executive suite. Lee Philips is directing from a script by Liz Cole, based on the book by Betty Lehan Harragan. The movie also stars David Spielberg, Eileen Heckart, Ed Grover, Elaine Giftos, Madlyn Rhue, Bill Morey and Betty Kennedy. "Six Pack," starring Kenny Rogers," will have Its world premiere at the World's Fair in Knoxvilleon July 5. Gov. Lamar Alexander of Tennessee and Mayor Randy Tyree of Knoxsville will be at the benefit premier at the Tenneessee Theater, which recently underwent a $3 million renovation: Director Daniel Petrie and producer Michael Trikilis will also attend with Rogers. 20th Century-Fox is releasing the The Secret of NIMH set for July animated films done in the classical style deal with classic stories, ones that are timeless and apply to everyone. Bluth, whose future was assured as head of Disney's animation department until he defected in 1979 over creative differences, says there is something about animation that makes audiences feel they have more of a sayso about it, more of a stake in it. "Possibly," he says, "because people first become acquainted with animation as children. As we grow up, we adults learn to take a lot of disappointments. But we all bring the child in us to animated movies." He continues, "There is a point at which audiences give themselves over to an animated film, and get engrossed in the story. We call that the willing suspension of disbelief. When we filmmakers take on that task, we' have to be very sure that audiences don't feel cheated at the end of our story. "Movie Producers have' a big responsibUity to the public," he says. "Movies can shape lives and inspire dreams that can solve tomorrow's world problems, so we do have ; that to consider." 1st IN LOCAL NEWS, FEATURES THE TIMES BALANCED COVERAGE GAS I LITE INN ENTERTAINMENT FRI. & SAT.
