Looks Unfamiliar 12 – Steve O’Brien
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 entertainment journalist Steve O’Brien, who fills us in on his hotly contested recollections of existentially troubling animation Simon In The Land Of Chalk Drawings, high-concept short-lived snack KP Sky Divers, sitcom spinoff Health And Efficiency, High Time and Ice Cold Cube by The Stone Roses, the BBC Sunday Classics serial Brat Farrar, and the Alfred Hitchcock And The Three Investigators books. Along the way we’ll be finding out who is officially the most punchable Doctor Who alien, what constitutes The Vindaloo Of Corn Snacks, and how many volumes of Michael Winner’s Choose Your Own Adventure Books were published.
Looks Unfamiliar is hosted by Podnose.
Roger Moore And The Crimefighters, the rival series to Alfred Hitchcock And The Three Investigators, is discussed in the Looks Unfamiliar with Stephen Brotherstone and Dave Lawrence, which you can hear here. There’s more about forgotten crisps ranges and flavours in the editions with Jem Roberts here and Garreth F. Hirons here.
Steve also appears in The Best Of Looks Unfamiliar alongside Lisa Parker and Andrew Trowbridge, Ben Baker, Jem Roberts, Martin Ruddock and Mark Griffiths, which you can find here.
