Looks Unfamiliar 39: Paul Putner
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 Paul Putner, who is most definitely not avin’ a larf when he claims to remember E.T. cash-in disco record Phone Home by Johnny Chingas, William Castle movie The Night Walker, the Treborland advertising campaign, detective series Holmes And Yoyo, rural horror film Out Of Town, and early high-end games console the Vectrex Arcade System. Along the way we’ll be finding out how to get the full immersive Laurel And Hardy experience by eating toffee, meeting The Snake Out Of Starsky And Hutch, taking a guess at what Gandhi’s novelty cash-in single would have sounded like, and enjoying a quick game of Brucie’s Play Your Second Hand Vectrex Right.
Looks Unfamiliar is hosted by Podnose.
Tim’s thoughts on the audibly shudder-inducing You Must Be The Husband can be found here, while you can hear Chevette’s cover of We Can Dance Again by Pulp as part of a 1998 mix – with accompanying thoughts on what a weird turn music took around then – here.
