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 sports writer Carrie Dunn, who’s trying to keep score of her hazy recollections of The Glam Metal Detectives, Handful Of Promises by Big Fun, The Rocky Horror Show sequel Shock Treatment, Ernest Hemingway musical Too Close To The Sun, The Karen Carpenter Story and Chris Tarrant-fronted game show Man O Man. Along the way we’ll be questioning how many hoodies you can wear at any one time, trying to figure out how New York can be ‘The Citiest Of Cities’, and holding a Bad Musicals Support Group meeting in the interval of another bad musical.

Alternately, if you’re just feeling generous, you can buy me a coffee here. Because let’s face it, anyone watching The Glam Metal Detectives needs one.

Carrie also appears in The Best Of Looks Unfamiliar alongside Justin Lewis on the original Only Fools And Horses theme, Bob Fischer on eighties tabloid celebrities, Tom Williamson on Samurai Pizza Cats, Jane Hill on His Land, Gabby Hutchinson Crouch on Llŷn Peninsula Earthquake, and Tim on It’s An S Pod Thing! talking about S Club 7 – Back To The ’50s, which you can find here.
Party To 18 Of The Hottest Summer Hits is a look at one of the most baffling compilations ever made, 1990’s Summer Chart Party, which surprisingly doesn’t feature Big Fun. You can find it here.
