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.
This is a collection of highlights from shows fifty five to sixty, featuring Shanine Salmon on the 1993 version of the EastEnders theme, Lydia Mizon on Stoppit And Tidyup, Jenny Morrill on The Elvis Special 1983, Al Kennedy on Steve Jackson’s Battle Cards, David Smith on Little Clowns Of Happytown, Lisa Parker And Andrew Trowbridge on Furzlin’ With Shag Connors And The Carrot Crunchers, and Meryl O’Rourke on The International Shoparound Exotic Glamourwear Catalogue. Along the way we’ll be finding out what happens if you play the EastEnders theme backwards, how to cope with an anxiety dream about The Fiddly Foodle Bird, why you need to pass a wordsearch test in order to become an Elvis Presley fan, whether there is such a thing as a Non-Advanced Combat Card, how many different ways Shag Connors can spell his name, why less underwear costs more, and generally trying not to think too much about the operational logistics behind party invites reading ‘Graham is bringing his porn’. Plus there’s something you might not have heard before – Tim on TV Cream Stays Indoors talking to Graham Kibble-White about Space Sentinels.
