Looks Unfamiliar 35 – Stephen Brotherstone And Dave Lawrence
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 are writers Stephen Brotherstone And Dave Lawrence, who have been scarred for life by the lack of widely shared memories of The Lone Ranger by Quantum Jump, the Roger Moore And The Crimefighters book series, CB Radio-themed comic 10-4 Action, ITV romantic comedy Pictures, ZX Spectrum immersive ‘movie’ Deus Ex Machina, and a Williams Furniture Superstore advert that gave viewers much more than was being offered in the sale. Along the way we’ll be discussing what action to take if confronted with a robber carrying a stack of board games, revealing how Handel would have repelled invading hordes, working out the best way for mice to operate a typewriter, and singing a medley of all two and a half records owned by Radio Merseyside.
