, 1975 Country-Western Music Orbits Earth SPACE CENTER. Houston .* - The twang' voke. the slow beat and the unmistakable melody of country and western piped into the Russian Soyuz spacecraft Saturday as a "little present" from Apollo Commander Thomas Stafford. Stafford arranged for a special recording by country and western singer Conway Twitty to be played in Moscow to the Soyuz crew. Twitty's recording, in Russian, V.Y* RENT FOR ITHATtfrf* IEVENT/ ·Dishes · Giants ·Banquet Tablet i (Silverware ·Tables · all typtj ·Card Tables 1 *Silver Services ·Coffee Makers ·Chairs · Table Linen ·Portable Bars ·Dance Floor ?v v. mum 733 Central Av». Phon* 344-95»7 was of "Helto Darlin" ". "We got a little present here of music we want to play." said Stafford in English. Then, switching to Russian, he said the music for the Soyuz was from western Oklahoma. Stafford, an Oklahoman, said after the music was played, "Yeah, that was Conway Twitty in Russian for the Soyuz crew and the people in the control center." "Apollo, that sounded like it was from far western Oklahoma around Kiev," said Houston Mission Control. Twitty, who lives in Oklahoma City, told a reporter earlier in the week that when Stafford contacted him about the tape, "I thought somebody was pulling my leg. "WhenJ discovered it was for real, I immediately got busy," he said. "I found Prof. Gurij Chemelev at Oklahoma U. to teach me enough Twitty R " ssian to i et b y-" The recording was played shortly before the Apollo and Soyuz were to undock for the last time, following the two days of their international space linkup. It was the first surprise the crew has pulled during the mission that could be known from monitoring space conversations here. Cosmonauts Alexei Leonov and Valen Kubasov are no strangers to country and western music. Leonov, here in the United States last year for some joint training, sang for the band at a Texas-style barbecue at a ranch. Speaker Dale W. Zinn, dean of the College of Agriculture at West Virginia.
