101 - Anna Cale - Ronnie Birtles, What Were You Up To?
Manage episode 355273614 series 1402484
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 writer Anna Cale, who's trying to bag a local newspaper scoop on remembering Dooby Duck's Disco Bus, Grange Hill's Ronnie Birtles' shoplifting storyline, Ken Loach's McDonald's advert, Nelson's Column, The Doberman Gang, fashion craze 'hair gems' and Radio 1 phone-in competition 31 Days In May. Along the way we'll be discovering what happens if Drop The Dead Donkey is rewritten by The Forces Of Darkness, recalling the great Indie Girl Maggie Moone Craze of 1999, reluctantly trying The Official Council Tarmac Bar, and revealing what punishment was really handed out to all those light-fingered Grange Hill pupils.
