My (50) grand contacts book


By ROGER TAVENER finds there’s money in numbers

My numbers were the best in the street.

Girls loved them.

We're pissed at 2am and the party game at my place is to put stars' numbers in an ice bucket.

Squealing girls pull out a number... Groan if it's a boring politician, go crazy if its a rock star...

But they must call...

If Rod comes up in LA, they must say hello then pretend to be cut off.

No conversation or intrusion … ahem ... is allowed.

Girls were thrilled to hear Rod or whoever the victim was that night.

No number tracing back then...

I flogged my contacts book in the early 90s for 50 grand … above is one page. I still have the tome. Most of the numbers were soon defunct with new numbering etc…
