Don't Stand So Close To Me '86 by The Police as discussed by Tim Worthington and Mitch Benn in Looks Unfamiliar.

Looks Unfamiliar 49: Mitch Benn

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 comedian, musician, actor, journalist, sci-fi author and pretty much everything else besides Mitch Benn, who’s trying to make out the images in a fuzzy black and white tenth generation copy of spooky Children’s ITV comedy drama Nobody’s House, Don’t Stand So Close To Me ’86 by The Police, Denys Fisher Toys’ Cyborg and Muton, BBC2 rock opera Orion, Two Stage Self-Assembly Ice Cream Cones and million o’clock in the morning no-budget cookery show Get Stuffed. Along the way we’ll be finding out about Steve Ditko’s role in the invention of Cornetto, listening to the ‘L.A. Law Version’ of Pretty In Pink, going to see a time-travelling Candy Flip and discovering why Muton’s ultimate enemy was the Skinny Vanilla Latte.
