CAMPAIGN DIARY: Street life turns out to be a great inspiration

As Campaign knows, finding a decent band for awards nights and parties is a difficult task, so we’ve always advised you should see what’s ’happening’ on the street.

As Campaign knows, finding a decent band for awards nights and

parties is a difficult task, so we’ve always advised you should see

what’s ’happening’ on the street.



Carlton Television’s chief executive, Martin Bowley, took our advice to

heart it seems.



While organising entertainment for his station’s charity lunch, which

will be held next week, Bowley took a stroll through London’s Leicester

Square and happened upon a funky, young busking duo.



After listening for a few moments, Bowley approached the pair and asked

them if they would play at the lunch.



The pair, Richard Rhoden and Steve Wellington, duly agreed and will be

joining the rest of the live bands, which have been rounded up by

Carlton’s weekly music show, Videotech.



The lunch (in aid of the Orpheus Trust which supports disabled

youngsters interested in music and drama) takes place on Wednesday 2

December, and we’ll let you know how Rhoden and Wellington get on.
