Georgia Twitty Nashville's Answer To Rona Barrett by JAY SHARBUTT AP Television Writer NEW YORK (AP) -- Hollywood has Rona Barrett to keep track of's world's famous, near-famous and infamous. But who is on duty in Nashville? Georgia Twilty, that's who. A cheerful, pleasant-voiced lady of 40, she runs "Georgia Twitty's Music City Hotline," a radio gossip show that covers events and personalities in Nashville's pop and country music scene. It's been on the air five years. By her count, it currently Is heard on 104 stations. She-tapes 18 one-minute shows per week. · Miss Twitty, a native of Florence, Ala., who said she was educated at Randolph-Macon College in Lynchbui'g, Va., and at Memphis State, says she doesn't try to spice her show with lurid stories about the stars. For one thing, it might anger the stars' fans. For another, she says, "I think the country DOUBLE FEATURE PROGRAM! PH. 751-8724 YALL COME NOW.' TOBACCO music audience, even though ,'s pretty cosmopolitan nowa- ays, is tired of '\vho is sleep- ng with whom.' " She says the fans tend to pre- er detailed reports on the more innocent aspects of lite among country music per- ormers -- wlial'they eat, what sporls they like, how they dress at home and so forth. But she says she also cliro licles stronger stuff, such as Music Cily feuds or romances The latter, she adds, always are handled obliquely when the parties involved in the romanc ng are married to other' par jes. Her pet peeve, she says, is a .endency of some country mu sic performers to suddenly ge ·elision amid much fanfare when they've gone without a hi record for several years. In most cases, she says, this is purely a publicity ploy aimet at reviving a fading career, Ti -he less sophisticated fans, sh' says, this approach "gets 'em in the gut every time." How does she compare hei self with Hollywood's Rom Barrett? 'I think we're both know! edgeable about our work," sai Miss Twitty. "But she has personality that differs from mine completely, I think she' basically a very cynical ind vidual. I'm not cynical at all. 1 ' MR.

Our parents figure they know ' e x a c t l y what we were hinking" .because "they were Mice, that age." They say the )oys will make up ugly rumors and our reputations will be ruined. When we just talked? We know we should have told Mom and Dad when the guys showed up and then it would lave been okay because we vouldn't have been "sneaking" as they say.
