Looks Unfamiliar 30: John Rain
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 John Rain, host of SMERSH Pod, who’s querying the lack of public recognition for anarchic Children’s ITV show Your Mother Wouldn’t Like It, E.T. Cola Creams, flop one-off charity event Trading Places Day, TV phone vote thriller Murder In Space, BBC2 sketch show Hello Mum and Oink! comic. Along the way we’ll be finding out what Jaws’ favourite crisp flavour is, enduring a sleep deprivation-derived Showaddywaddy-based hallucination, learning how to keep Doctor Who on the air by eating crisps, and witnessing the single worst attempt at asking Catherine Tate on a date ever.
Looks Unfamiliar is hosted by Podnose.
There’s more about In One Ear, the Radio 4 comedy show that led to Hello Mum, in the Looks Unfamiliar with Justin Lewis which you can find here, while Paul Putner told us more about ridiculous E.T. cash-in merchandise here.
