An email to 2UE’s John Kerr
Good morning John,
You were asking for suggestions for names for Princess Mary's newborn children a short while ago, and mentioned that she wants Australian names for them. Well I was thinking that we could have a bipartisan political contribution based on our current political leaders. The boy could be named "Kevin Anthony" after our Foreign Affairs minister and our Opposition Leader. The girl could have the slightly sillier name of "Julie Julia", after the deputy-leader of the opposition and our Prime Minister. I will fully understand if you think this might not go down so well with Her Highness.
Also you asked about TV personalities who we wish were still on television. When you mentioned that the late great Adriana Xenides was born on this day, I was reminded of how I miss Rob Elliott who hosted Wheel Of Fortune after John Burgess and Tony Barber. I was a bit young for Baby John, but I fell in love with Wheel when Rob hosted it. He seems to have disappeared from TV since then…I don't suppose you know what he is up to these days?
Have a wonderful day John, and I hope you have a great time at the Tamworth Country Music Festival.
