Looks Unfamiliar 10 – Mark Griffiths
Looks Unfamiliar is a podcast in which writer and occasional broadcaster Tim Worthington talks to a guest about some of the things that they remember that nobody else ever seems to. Joining Tim this time is writer Mark Griffiths, who shares his all too vivid recollections of Five Minutes by Mainframe, The Bloke Who Pulled His Pants Down On Kilroy, Disneyland by Frankie Goes To Hollywood, Charles Hawtrey as a vampire on Runaround, BBC Records And Tapes’ Off Beat Sound Effects, and missing the first episode of a new series of Doctor Who because you were at the Doctor Who exhibition in Blackpool. Along the way we’ll be speculating on how Robert Kilroy-Silk’s personal archives are organised, what ‘Door Creak With Eno’ might sound like, and how to react if faced with a Doctor Who-themed Sophie’s Choice.
Looks Unfamiliar is hosted by Podnose.
You can read more about the strange story of BBC Records And Tapes – and their many, many Sound Effects albums – in Tim’s book Top Of The Box, available in paperback here or from the Kindle Store here.
You can also find out about the Frankie Goes To Hollywood computer game in this edition of Looks Unfamiliar with Garreth F. Hirons.
Mark also appears in The Best Of Looks Unfamiliar alongside Martin Ruddock, Ben Baker, Jem Roberts, Steve O’Brien and Lisa Parker and Andrew Trowbridge, which you can find here.
