DIARY: Talk about a waste of time...just hand over the title to our Jeremy

Talk Radio is staging a competition to find the Raconteur of the Year. Held over dinner in front of guests in 14 regional heats, it will find, so it says, the next Bob Monkhouse or Fred Trueman.

Campaign would like to nominate Jeremy Bullmore, now at WPP, but

famously of JWT. Anyone who’s heard him will know why we’d rather listen

to him than Fred bloody Trueman. In fact, we’d rather listen to almost

anyone rather than Fred Trueman, except perhaps Maurice on what the

letters S-A-A-T-C-H-I stand for.



Oh, as the competition is held in association with Daewoo, Michael Finn,

of the Korean giant’s ad agency, is ruled out. Shame. Anyone who’s not

caught his post-two-glasses-of-Chablis-during-dinner repertoire is

missing out.
