'Zoo World' imp roving By J. P. Rool People are animals, I tell you. How else can you explain teenieboppers sitting in a Sopor stupor shouting "Chilli Dog" at James Tay-' lor? Yeah, they're animals all right, which probably explains how the rock music megapaper "Zoo World" got its name. Either that or its publishers think rock performers are animals to be h o u n d e d , caged, photographed and studied. And that's just what they do. Zoo World began as a kind of imitation Rolling Stone and it is still that to a large degree. The publication is improving, however, and recent issues have featured articles by present or former Stone authors. One small though very obvious difference between the two is Zoo's center- spread--a folded poster of some sort in each issue. I think I've explained before the arrangement between radio station WXIT and Zoo World, but here it is again: XIT is provided the centerfold space (the station can provide its own centerfold or use the picture the magazine supplies nationwide with different printing for different areas) with the WXIT message in exchange for promotional radio spots. A copy of Zoo World is kindly sent to me each half- month by the station. Recent Zoos to reach me have been improved -- I hesitate to say vastly so -over the first copies I saw. The issue dated May 9 with Chicago on the cover and an- n o u n c i n g articles on "Johnny W i n t e r ' s Back Pages" and "Ann Peebles: 99 Lbs. of Song" featured an unusually good Johnny Winter poster. The cover story on Chicago, "Somehow, Something's Changed," is by the Stone's own ex, Tom Dupree. Other recent articles in the megapaper (their term) have included a piece on Black Oak Arkansas, one on B r o w n s v i l l e Station ( a small-time band that came back to town Tuesday with Ten Years After) and a few on The Beatles and will- they-or-won't they y o u know-what. They won't, I now say. One article a couple of m o n t h s back concerned Grand Funk Railroad's financial settlement with former owner-producer-manager Terry K n i g h t . W h e n Grand^Funk appeared in Charleston recently, I sat in a motel room with No. 1 Funk Mark Farrier and tried to get the lowdown on settlement figures. The Railroad's publicity people had put out one story that strongly differed from Knight's and appeared to go easy on the group's payment to free itself, of Knight and purchase its name, which he owned. Farner. finally admitted that, Knight's figures, though high, were more accurate. Zoo World articles have an uncanny knack of concerning rock stars just before or after they've appeared in town. That's probably because the stories are done on performers as they tour and National Shows is pretty good about getting them booked into the Civic Center on those tours. The June 6 issue featured another Dupree piece, one . on the new Nilsson-Ringo Starr movie, "Son of Dracula" and something called "What's Purple, With 8 Legs and Assembled Again?" It was about Moby Grape, one of the first and finest of the San Francisco groups. Zoo World still is a little sophomoric; it is written mostly in the teen fan-mag style, but it is improving. And if "Rolling Stone" keeps going off on its political tangents with its over-long pieces that are more style .than content, Zoo World will soon be the only strictly rock music paper around. There's a need for the service. 'I'm just waiting for Shel Silverstein to sing, "The Cover of the Zoo World." XIT's Top Ten for the week: 1. Locomotion--Grand Funk 2.

Television Movies "" "CHEYENNE AUTUMN," (Pt. II), 9 a.m., OD (See Thursday TV Movies). . ..- -.,. ,.,,.*· "ANY WEDNESDAY," (1966)***,9p.m.,Offi(H)© © with Jane Fonda and Jason Robards. The successful Broadway comedy about a kept girl, her married lover, his wife, and an out-of-town salesman who acts as a catalyst, comes to the screen improved, thanks to Miss Fonda's bright performance. The comedy, has good dialogue and the cast delivers it well. * "THE FEARLESS VAMPIRE KILLERS," (1967), 11:30 p.m., O with Sharon Tate and Roman Polanski. This wild satire on horror films pits a professor and his assistant against the evil power of Transylvanian vampires. The two set off to save the local innkeeper's daughter from the town's resident bloodsucker, Count Krolock, unaware that the girl's rather pleasant smile has grown somewhat toothy. »· ' · "THE BIRDS'," (1963) **'/2,11:30 p.m., 7'withTippi Hedren and Rod Taylor. Alfred Hitchcock thriller about the bird-world turning on humans, creating death and terror. Some fine trick camerawork, but the suspense master fizzles out in the obscure plotting, unsympathetic characters -- both human and birdlike -- so it's all largely a matter of how fond one is of the Hitchcock touch. rnrr .
