Along with their more publicized, coquettish counterparts, "tough-girl" performers have always been part of rock 'n' roll's legacy--from beehive-topped, gum-snapping pioneers the Shangri-Las, on through Janis Joplin, Patti Smith, Suzi Quatro and Joan Jett. The insurgent essence of the music often breeds strong-willed women who refuse to tart up their image, whose in-your-face music and appearance is more grease than glamour.

Radio stations across the country are being cautioned against broadcasting what some well-placed Washington wives have labeled pornographic rock 'n' roll music. The warning comes from the National Assn. of Broadcasters as sexually explicit and suggestive songs are on the rise, evidenced in part by the ascension of the pop hero Prince, never one to mince words. Ironically, the warning also comes just as the Reagan Administration is driving toward deregulating the broadcasting industry.

Always, in past wars, Tel Aviv was the carefree heartland that Israelis left behind when they went to defend the country in the far-off sands of the Sinai or the mountainous Golan Heights. Now, suddenly, it is the front. For the first time in 42 years of independence through five wars, an enemy has struck deep and consistently into Israeli cities.
