Anthea Turner by Spursfan on 26 February 2009 8:29am
 
Having just had someone sign up to be my friend on FB that I haven't seen for maybe 20 years, it sent me wheeling back in a nostalgic flood.

And it reminded me about Anthea Turner.

In the 8os and 90s the husband and I were heavily involved in the local Festival, which lasted 1-2 weeks. As well as organising an event, I was the committee Secretary. As the Festival loomed nearer, the local radio stations and papers would contact me for details, and the researcher from Signal Radio (Stoke-on-Trent) was...you've guessed it...Anthea Turner! She didn't even have her own show then, just a background girl, but very pleasant. She would just ring me up, have a chat, get the details and that would be it.

She was going out with a local dj on Radio Stoke - Bruno Brookes - who had been started on his journey by my boss in the Youth and Community service! She had held a dj competition in the youth club she used to run and Bruno had won it!!

Bruno then went down to London and became famous and Anthea went with him - the rest is history. I can remember her saying to me that she was leaving as her boyfriend was going to London.

I don't particularly LIKE Anthea Turner - but I think it is funny to think of her ringing me and making notes of what I said!!

You have disappointed me - as you knew you would.

[Bet you've been told THAT by a lot women - am I right? hee hee ;P ]

Nope, strangely enough, I've never been told that. ;)
