Looks Unfamiliar 15 – Steve Berry
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, broadcaster and TV Crisp Expert Steve Berry, who’s keen to scratch a nostalgic itch for Single Versions Of Pop Songs That Never Get Played Anywhere Any More, Elastoplast Heroes, late night Channel 4 media-scouring current affairs effort United States Of Television, Skoal Bandits, the Starblazer Electronic Space Command Belt, and school assembly songbook Morning Has Broken. Along the way – when we’re not stalking Richard Herring – we’ll be musing on the hard-hitting storylines Grange Hill missed, discovering the identity of ‘Ant Marco’, and working out just how far you can balance a hymn book on the edge of a church balcony without the inevitable occurring. And there’s ten million points if you can work out which comedian is noisily drinking coffee in the background…
Looks Unfamiliar is hosted by Podnose.
