Anna Raeburn - Capital and LBC presenter

Apr 09, 09:09 PM

From aspirations of being an actress, she emerged as the award-winning contributor to a programme which was to guide Londoners through their emotional headaches in the ‘70s and ‘80s – and served to define a genre. 

In this edition of #radiomoments ‘Conversations’, Anna Raeburn tells of her early days editing the problem page of Woman magazine which led to her famous ‘Anna and the Doc’ days up the staircase at Capital’s Euston Tower - and then to her time at the then new Talk Radio UK. A gifted communicator, she talks about her voice – and of radio’s truths.

Anna shares too the influence of her parents in her chosen career and the personal turmoil which equipped her to empathise with the troubles of others.

In her own words, this is the Anna Raeburn story.
