DIARY: Is that a pistol in your pocket? Then let the board meeting begin

Does your client need to reach 40 million customers in Russia, by any chance? Then you could save PR man John Spencer a trip, for he is about to venture forth to Russia in an attempt to find a sponsor for the radio show Live From the West.

Does your client need to reach 40 million customers in Russia, by

any chance? Then you could save PR man John Spencer a trip, for he is

about to venture forth to Russia in an attempt to find a sponsor for the

radio show Live From the West.



Live From the West is made in London by Russians, and goes out to an

estimated 40 million listeners in Russia each week. It reports on

Western music and entertainment news, to all 11 time zones, and the

producers, Angell Sound, are looking for a new sponsor.



Spencer is this month heading for Moscow to test the ground, and is

preparing for the trip by, he says, listening to military band music. ’A

lot of Russian executives today are armed with personal weapons and

attend meetings ’wearing the iron’, as they say in some circles in New

York City,’ he reveals. Fortunately he has a background in the Royal

Marines, serving in Commando units, so hopefully his nerve will hold

through any difficult situations.
