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 and editor Justin Lewis, who’s hoping that while you may not know what night is bins, you might remember Neither Fish Nor Flesh by Terence Trent D’Arby, Radio 4’s ‘dangerous’ comedy show In One Ear, the London Symphony Orchestra’s version of Tommy, HTV children’s programme Orbit, Radio 2 quiz show Pop Score, and The Welsh-Language Dubbed Version Of Trumpton. Along the way we’ll be finding out how to tell if there’s some comedy coming up (even if it’s Fresh Fields), who would win out of two giant robot dinosaur things and an otter, the correct manner in which to formally address one of The Chippendales, and what the theme music from William Orbit’s sitcom would have sounded like.
Justin would like to acknowledge that since this was recorded, Neither Fish Nor Flesh has been officially credited to Sananda Maitreya.
