For those who don't remember, producers tried to boost ratings by taking the proudly hokey TV show out of the cornfield and gussying it up a bit. It was quite a contradiction for a show named "Hee Haw." Young, 38, views it as nothing less than a conspiracy to rob country music of its soul. He traces the plot back to the 1970s, when Olivia Newton- John scored big hits on the country charts with dubious records like "Have You Never Been Mellow." "That started fizzling out," Young said, his long whiskers dusting the giant table-top in the RCA Records conference room as he nodded. "Then they tried to change 'Hee Haw,' a show which everybody all over the country liked. They wanted to take those overalls off people." The HeadHunters will appear in a free concert Wednesday in the parking lot of Salina's Wal-Mart, 2900 S. Ninth. The concert also will feature Canadian band Prairie Oyster. The Kentucky HeadHunters, pride of Metcalfe County, Ky., have kept country music pure. Richard Young and his brother Fred, their cousin Greg Martin, and brothers Ricky Lee and Doug Phelps stormed south to Nashville in 1989. In a town where many bands have starched-to-perfection stage clothes but don't play on their own records, the Head- Hunters were a real band with long hair, rumpled clothing and chops. Hardly anyone expected their souped-up versions of songs by country greats like Bill Monroe and Waylon Jennings to get much notice. That was a mistake. "Pickin' On Nashville" The Associated Press The Kentucky HeadHunters have a new album and a tour that is bringing them to Salina. Members are Doug Phelps (left), Greg Martin, Fred Young, Anthony Kenney and Richard Young. sold over a million, and produced hits like "Oh Lonesome Me" and "Dumas Walker." For a blink of the eye, artificial boundaries between country and rock seemed to come tumbling down, as did pretensions of taking country music uptown. It didn't last. "Our second album sold almost a million copies," said group leader Richard Young, 42. "And by Nashville standards — I guess because it sold less (than the first) — we were doing something wrong. And I don't think that's true." The group imploded under the pressure to repeat its success, with Ricky Lee and Doug Phelps going off to form a duo, Brother Phelps. The Kentucky HeadHunters continued, adding bassist Anthony Kenney (another Young cousin) and vocalist Mark Orr. The next album, "Rave On," leaned decidedly to bluesy rock. It bombed in 1993, and the band left Mercury Records. In 1995, staring at the ceiling from a motel room bed in Ohio and facing the loss of another lead vocalist (Orr was tired of the road), Richard Young said to himself, "OK, enough's enough." He got on the phone and set up a meeting with the Phelps brothers. Ricky Lee Phelps, the original lead singer, declined to return because he wanted to go into the ministry. He suggested his brother return alone, this time as lead singer. It worked, all agree, and the band started writing songs at once. They took the finished CD to RCA and were signed in short order. The new CD "Stompin' Grounds" is the return to form the band had been seeking since losing the Phelps brothers. Even with three guitarists (Kenney stayed on as bassist, and Doug Phelps switched to guitar), the Kentucky country roots of the HeadHunters are more evident than ever. "Some people have said the HeadHunters will never be anything but a bash and party band," Richard Young said. "Our new album shows that's not true."

Based on the findings of a television study released Thursday, by today's TV standards Potsy and Ralph also might tease Richie about his sister's "ass," or call Chachi a "freakin' bastard." The study by the Parents Television Council tracked a month's worth of programming this year during the so-called "family hour" — 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. on the coasts and 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. Central and Mountain times. The study's key finding? The hour of prime time that once belonged to shows like "Little House on the Prairie" is sexier, more vulgar and downright raunchier than it was even one year ago. L. Brent Bozell III, the group's chairman, at a Capitol Hill press conference, played videotaped excerpts from TV programs aired in February between 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. by all six networks. The scenes included bra-clad Heather Locklear licking a man's chest on Fox's "Melrose Place," bleeped-out exclamations of the F- word on ABC's "Roseanne," and two characters on NBC's "Friends" discussing a man's genitals that were hanging out of his baggy shorts. Joining Bozell were Sens. Joseph Lieberman, D-Conn., and Sam Brownback, R-Kan., who held a hearing on the issue later in the day. The lawmakers are sponsoring legislation to give broadcasters a narrow anti-trust exemption so they could voluntarily establish limits on sexual content during the hour. "What we're talking about is literally millions of kids under the age of 11 watching this," Lieberman said, proclaiming the family hour "dead." " t PAMPER HER WITH...
