Looks Unfamiliar #41: Chris Shaw – It’s Half Three And Something Is Happening

Bailey's Comets, as discussed by Tim Worthington and Beatle Academic Chris Shaw in Looks Unfamiliar.

Looks Unfamiliar 41: Chris Shaw

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 Beatles Expert Chris Shaw, who can identify every photo on the cover of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band but still struggles to find anyone else who can remember action comedy cartoon Bailey’s Comets, Trade Test Transmission film Evoluon, BBC2 muso how-to show Rock School, live action/animation movie The Phantom Tollbooth, Radio London phone-in host Robbie Vincent, and Fighting Fantasy phone-in role-playing game F.I.S.T.. Along the way we’ll be listening to Herbie Hancock jamming with Emu, revealing why you should never employ Freddie Phillips as your punchline writer, and looking into what happened in that weird bit of the television listings where the font went a bit smaller than the rest of it.
