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 journalist Mic Wright, who’s noting that no newspaper front pages contain anything about The Adventures Of Pete And Pete, Army And Navy Sweets, Emergency by 999, Rock On by David Essex, the early nineties Thunderbirds comic, and the murky origins of a certain unsavoury playground rumour. Along the way we’ll be admiring Jeff Wayne’s skateboarding skills, assessing Ian Pick and Ian Mix’s retirement plan, and charting Melissa Joan Hart’s little-known stint as a member of The Beatles.

If you’ve enjoyed this, you’ll enjoy Tim’s book Can’t Help Thinking About Me, a collection of columns and features with a personal twist. Can’t Help Thinking About Me is available in paperback here or from the Kindle Store here.
Alternately, if you’re just feeling generous, you can buy me a coffee here. If there’s a trendy fancy hipster Army And Navy Blend, though, please avoid it at all costs.
Mic has also been on Looks Unfamiliar talking about I Helped Patrick McGoohan Escape by The Times, Clarissa Explains It All, 2000 AD strip Nikolai Dante, Sharky And George, Jeff Lint and The Game, which you can find here.
