Eric Shackle Writes: World's Biggest Name Dropper?

"Back in the 1940s, I could have been called the world’s biggest name-dropper,'' writes Eric Shackle.

As the Sydney public relations officer for BP Australia Ltd. I met many world-famous figures who came to Australia to participate in TV shows BP was sponsoring – first an hour-long pop music show, and later the top-rating national quiz show, Bob Dyer’s BP Pickabox.

I met his overseas guests at the Sydney airport and drove them to the TV studio (first it was Channel 7, then later Channel 9).

Without exception, every one of those visitors, famous as they were, turned out to be an affable, friendly person.

Now for some of those famous names I can drop:

World record holders Sterling Moss (land speed) and Donald Campbell (water speed). Quiz champion Esko Kivikoski from Finland.
