Looks Unfamiliar 37: Michael Livesley
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 actor and musician Michael Livesley, who’s inviting everyone to read on dot dot dot about The Rupert Bear Flexidisc, The How And Why Wonder Book Of Dinosaurs, Murphy’s Crisps, a Newsflash about TV’s Ena Sharples, Topps Football ’78 Bubblegum Cards, and ZX Spectrum Game Clumsy Colin Action Biker. Along the way we’ll be finding out about the contribution Emlyn Hughes’ elongated leg made to road safety, planning a visit to The People’s Republic Of KDR, remembering when the Rupert Bear annual had to be wrapped in plain brown paper, and wondering who would give a decades old children’s book a one-star review on Amazon.
Looks Unfamiliar is hosted by Podnose.
