Looks Unfamiliar Christmas Extra: “CRISMAS by BEETLES”

Looks Unfamiliar Christmas Extra, with Tim Worthington, Ben Baker, Phil Catterall and Darrell Maclaine.

Looks Unfamiliar Christmas Extra: “CRISMAS by BEETLES”

As a special extra Christmas treat for Looks Unfamiliar listeners, here’s a compilation of highlights from the archives, with extracts from Christmas-themed podcasts of Christmases past by Tim Worthington, Ben Baker, Phil Catterall and Darrell Maclaine-Jones. A lot of this hasn’t been available for years, and a lot of it is still rather funny, so we hope you enjoy it! Along the way we talk about Now – The Christmas Album, Val Doonican, A Christmas Gift For You From Phil Spector, School Fairs, Department Store Grottos, Last-Minute Shopping and Shambolic Office Parties; run down charts of Bad Santas, The Worst Ever Christmas Songs and The Best Ever Christmas Quotes; and listen to bewildering Christmas Singles by Russ Conway, Rotterdam Termination Source, Mr. Christmas, Percy Sugden from Coronation Street and The Count from Sesame Street. We’ll also be finding out who Tim thinks is more important than Father Christmas, who Ben suspects might be Father Christmas, what happened when Phil went carol singing, and what the other tape in Darrell’s house was. Not to mention who recorded a song called ‘Santa’s A Big Fat Fuck’…
