So what does a talk-show host really need? Great voice? Great hair? A personal trainer? Try interesting legs. As the Search for the Unknown Talk-Show Host got under way in Philadelphia yesterday morning, it quickly became clear, at least from the "studio audience," that hosiery - or the lack of it - was as interesting as sex, politics or personal fulfillment. Take Aldine Hallman. Hallman, who's from Camden, was just one of many South Jersey residents to cross the Delaware yesterday for a shot at a show on the new America's Talking cable network.

Think you're good enough - or wacky enough - for American Idol ? Get your traveling gear ready. Signups are Sunday and Monday for next Tuesday's tryouts at the Izod Center at the Meadowlands in East Rutherford, N.J. Alas, the ratings hog of a talent show won't be back in Philadelphia this year. Too bad. Last year's auditions here not only set some kind of record for wannabes getting wristbands, but produced some of last season's most memorable personalities. Like the Bucks County guy who serenaded judge Paula Abdul with his "Stalker" song.
