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 Paul Kirkley, who is wondering if anyone else recalls The Kids From Fame Again, the The A-Team tie-in novels, Del Amitri the debut album by Del Amitri, David Nobbs’ Henry Pratt novels, video rental shop favourite The Beastmaster, BBC1 holiday filler The Saturday Picture Show, and TV Tops comic strip The Fantastic Adventures Of Adam Ant. Along the way we’ll be finding out what Robert Smith takes on holiday, what happens when Dick Turpin runs head first at Sapphire And Steel, and why you should never obey Musical Youth lyrics to the letter.
Buy A Book!
If you’ve enjoyed this, you’ll enjoy Tim’s book Can’t Help Thinking About Me, a collection of columns and features with a personal twist. Can’t Help Thinking About Me is available in paperback here or from the Kindle Store here.
Alternately, if you’re just feeling generous, you can buy me a coffee here. It probably costs about the same as the first Del Amitri album does on Amazon Used And New.
The Saturday Picture Show‘s close ITV rival The Saturday Show features in Looks Unfamilliar with Emma Burnell, which you can find here.
Paul also features in The Best Of Looks Unfamiliar alongside Jonny Morris on Jesta Giggle by The Barron Knights, Darrell Maclaine on The Brennan JB7, James Gent on When The Wind Blows by David Bowie, Ros Ballinger on Microsoft Explorapedia, Garreth Hirons on Sweet 75 and Tim on Betamax Video Club talking about Absolute Beginners, which you can hear here.
The Kids From Fame Again didn’t end up on BBC Records And Tapes, but you can read much more about some of the albums that did in Listen With Hamble here.
