John Tesh says his compositions mix jazz, rock and neo-classical styles, and tonight he's presenting it on behalf of Maryland Public Television.And in a creepy coincidence, the pledge-driving public TV outlet also is airing a previously scheduled concert by The Grateful Dead, whose leader, Jerry Garcia, died on Wednesday.* "Unsolved Mysteries" (8 p.m.-9 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11) -- Is there buried treasure under the Alamo? Archaeologists are digging around in the Texas shrine because Jim Bowie is said to have stashed a trove of valuables in a well that was subsequently buried -- before the 1836 battle with Mexican troops.

Perhaps you're a Gen-X pop icon. You may dance to the beat of a psycho-techno-maven. Or maybe you believe in the surreal cyber-Zeitgeist of our times.If so, you've succumbed to the lexicon of chic speak, stringing together vacuous terms that may have originated anywhere from Douglas Coupland to Wayne Campbell to the Taco Bell chihuahua.If "diva" is your derivative term of choice, you learned not from an "E! True Life Story," but Bellini.Bellini is not pasta. He was a composer. Circa 1831, Vincenzo Bellini wrote the aria "Casta Diva" (chaste goddess)

Apparently, there is a group of otherwise logical people among us who believe that former "Entertainment Tonight" anchor John Tesh is an alien from outer space. The tabloids have reported it, and Tesh acknowledged on a recent talk show that the story was out there.Alas, the rumors aren't true, but the aliens could hardly have picked a better candidate to numb the world, or at least the United States, for subsequent conquest than Tesh, based on his work for NBC this week.Tesh, who covered cycling and gymnastics in earlier days at CBS and NBC, has sputtered inanity after inanity, tossed in hype and added a few inconsistencies to spew a toxic brew at viewers as lead announcer on gymnastics.

As might be expected after all his years on "Entertainment Tonight," John Tesh knows a few things about image. He realizes, for instance, that because he plays pop instrumental music, critics are no more likely to be kind to him than they are to Kenny G. But he also understands that the bad reviews aren't just sparked by the music he plays."

"It's not easy. It's getting to the point where something's going to explode -- probably my head," says John Tesh.But the composer/musician, who is also co-host of television's "Entertainment Tonight," sounds more enthusiastic than weary describing his multimedia activities, in a telephone interview in advance of his performance tomorrow at the U.S. Healthcare Music Fest '95.The jazz festival, being held tomorrow and Sunday at Rash Field in the Inner Harbor, is one of the major events of Preakness Celebration '95, which is exploding with a week of events before next Saturday's running of the Preakness Stakes.

Shannon Miller was "Cinderella -- and the slipper fit." Svetlana Boguinskaya "comforted her young like a mother." And Kim Zmeskal's crowning moment came "in the arms of the man who made her dream come true."You don't have to be a women's studies major to wonder about the language John Tesh used Tuesday night in wrapping-up NBC's coverage of the women's gymnastics events at the Summer Olympics.And when you combine the Tesh-Talk with slo-mo images of the girls shown over chariots-of-fire piano music, you have a telecast that asks viewers to connect with these girl/woman athletes in ways that beg to be questioned.

I WILL RESIST all temptation to say it seems like onlyYesterdaybut the truth is that 30 years ago, I had already tired of the Beatles. Yes, it's true.In My LifeI've met only two people who weren't wild about the mop-haired songsters of my baby-boomlet era. It was one of the few things my Dad and I agreed on outside of family values (that's when a family not only talked about them but enforced them too.)Yeah, yeah yeahBoth my Dad and I agreed that they were talented songwriters and performers, and that at least two of them could genuinely carry a tune.

Robert MilesDreamland (Arista 18930)If you wanted to be clever about it, you might describe Robert Miles as the techno version of John Tesh (John Teschno?). Like Tesh, Miles specializes in airy, soothing melodies, played on mostly piano and supported by lush, dramatic arrangements. But such a comparison only goes so far; after all, Tesh usually records with an orchestra, whereas Miles' "Dreamland" is almost entirely synthesized. Those synths are a crucial component in the album's techno undercurrent, blending seamlessly with the electronic percussion in "Fantasya" and providing much of the pulse beneath the swirling "Red Zone."

THE OLYMPICS were coming. The Olympics were coming.So I was leaving.In my former life as a sportswriter, I had covered many Olympics. I knew the drill. Every four years, it's like the return of the Beatles, except all the music is straight out of "Chariots of Fire." So, by the way, is the slo-mo instant replay.Don't get me wrong: I like the Olympics. I just can't stand the hype.So determined was I to get away from it all, I escaped to far-away, exotic Canada. I picked out Vancouver, which is, for you geography buffs, way on the other side of Canada.
