Looks Unfamiliar #22: James Gent – A Cross Between The Prisoner And Test Match Special


Looks Unfamiliar 22: James Gent

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 James Gent, who is stringing together hazy archive recollections of The Golden Oldie Picture Show, When The Wind Blows by David Bowie, Beeb Magazine, T-Rex ‘Greatest Hits’ albums with none of the hits on them, Boxpops, and the Montreux Special of Monty Python’s Flying Circus. Along the way we’ll be finding out what Clive Dunn being Grandad as Grandad looks like, where the whistling from Never Let Me Down was ‘borrowed’ from, and where you can read about Michael Sheard And His Pet Dogs.
