Looks Unfamiliar: Joanne Sheppard – Not Really The Modus Operandi Of Your Average Ghoul

All Aboard! - 24 Original All-Time Children's Favourites (EMI. 1979) - listen to Joanne Sheppard and Tim Worthington talking about it in Looks Unfamiliar.

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 book reviewer Joanne Sheppard, who’s trying her hardest not to be roped into appearing in the background of The Bump by M.C. Mallett, some mysterious unidentified horror-themed sweets with free stickers, The Strange Affair Of Adelaide Harris, Matchbox Fighting Furies, wildly contrasting game shows Mouthtrap and Connoisseur, National Geographic’s World Magazine, children’s compilation album All Aboard! and The Guinness Book Of Pet Records. Along the way we’ll be assessing Chessington World Of Adventure’s suitability for Goth day trips, questioning when pirates jumped the shark, revisiting Flanders And Swann’s controversial Public Information Film and recounting the revolutionary snack food innovations of Crisp Gascoine.
