The Best Of Looks Unfamiliar: The Acceptable Mike Reid
Manage episode 293552054 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.
This is a collection of highlights featuring Mitch Benn on Matchbox Zoomy Balloonies, Catrin Lowe on Heartthrob - The Dream Date Game, Mic Wright on Army And Navy Sweets, Darrell Maclaine on Rutland Weekend Television, Mark Thompson on The Giftie, Will Maclean on The Fourth Pan Book Of Horror Stories, Stephen O'Brien on The Box Of Delights, Sophie Davies on The All Star Impressions Show and Tim talking to Ben Baker and Phil Catterall about A Christmas Lantern. Along the way we’ll be looking back the mercurial musical career of ‘Trevor’, disputing Peter Hitchens’ Hot Or Not rating, evaluating Ian Pick and Ian Mix’s retirement plan, discussing how to tackle an Out Of Control Eric Idle, finding out how ghosts answer the phone, hunting down television tie-in paperbacks in decidedly less than upmarket bookshops and rating celebrity impressions of the Jamaican Louis Walsh. Plus there’s something you may not have heard before – Tim on (Music For) The Head Ballet talking to Paul Abbott about Ringing On The Engine Bell by Bernard Cribbins.
