Reginald Tindal Kennedy “Reggie” Bosanquet (9 August 1932 – 27 May 1984) was a British journalist and broadcaster who worked for ITN from 1967 to 1979 as an anchor of News at Ten. In 1980, Bosanquet was appointed rector of the University of Glasgow, a position he held until 1984.
He was a divisive choice: shortly after his election, he made news when he arrived late and inebriated at an official banquet, insulting numerous attendees, including Lord Provost of Glasgow Michael Kelly (his eventual successor as rector).
The words on the disco record “Dance with Me” were “sung” (or, more appropriately, reported in the style of a newscast) by Bosanquet in 1980. Listeners of British DJ Kenny Everett ranked it number one in the Bottom 30.
