Looks Unfamiliar 11 – Lisa Parker And Andrew Trowbridge
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 are Round The Archives hosts Lisa Parker and Andrew Trowbridge, who relate their not especially shared memories of Big John Little John, Virtual Murder, Matchbox Cascade, H.E. Todd’s Bobby Brewster books, Enid Blyton’s Mr. Pink Whistle, and the Jaws board game. Along the way we’ll be finding out how to re-enact Total Wipeout in the comfort of your own home, how many voices ‘Radio’s Man Of A Thousand Voices’ really had, and why The Clown from Camberwick Green could never qualify as a master of disguise.
