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 actress, singer, writer and 1980s Pop Culture Geek Deborah Tracey, who’s taking time out at 10.55am to invite us all to reflect on Hardwicke House, Five To Eleven, How Can The Labouring Man Find Time For Self Culture? by Martini Ranch, budget computer game Kwik Snax, Bring Me The Head Of Mavis Davis and Kate’s Party by Joan Solomon. Along the way we’ll be answering an Accidental Rik Mayall Trick Question, listening to Margaret Thatcher’s Panpipe Moods, meeting the Simon Cowell of cheap computer games and addressing a problematic difference of opinion on what Mariah Carey ‘doing an L7’ might actually entail.
Deborah Tracey is an actress, singer and writer. You follow her on Twitter at @DeborahTracey.

Alternately, if you’re just feeling generous, you can buy me a coffee here. Sufficiently strong to shake off the effects of Five To Eleven, please.
Time Will Crawl is a look back to the weird mid-morning void on BBC1 that Five To Eleven exponentially filled; you can find it here.
Jem Roberts talked about Code Masters’ Dizzy – which Kwik Snax was one of many sequels to – in Looks Unfamiliar here.
