Mystery over fax urgency

THE ubiquitous Richard Finny, who a few days ago was in another part of the Asia-Pacific region rubbishing the poor standard of English in Hongkong (what you mean, hey, Richard man?), tells us of a fax he received yesterday from a friend in London marked: ''Urgent, Urgent, Urgent.'' The sender, a big-time promoter in the British entertainment field, wanted a list of the top five local singers in Hongkong together with info on their current rankings on the record charts.

The Sheraton PR director faxed straight back with the list, adding an imploring PS: ''What on Earth do you want this for?'' At the time of going to press Richard was yet to receive an answer. But he suspects something big is in the offing.

We can hardly wait.
