Looks Unfamiliar #24: Garreth F. Hirons – I Backed The Betamax Of Nirvana Spinoffs



Looks Unfamiliar 24 – Garreth F. Hirons

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 for a second time is musician and writer Garreth F. Hirons, who’s getting puzzled looks whenever he mentions The Yellow Album by The Simpsons, the Frankie Goes To Hollywood computer game, post-Nirvana outfit Sweet 75, sitcom Linc’s, the Transformers ‘Action Masters’ range, The Way Of The Tiger gaming books, and high-concept soft drink Quatro. Along the way we’ll be finding out why Ian Amblin took exception to E.T.’s Rugby League, how marketable a Richard Stilgoe Action Figure would be, the correct angle for Ped Gill’s head, and more than you would ever rationally want to know about what happened on 24th November 1998. Plus there’s an update on the Piers Morgan/Monster Munch debacle!

Looks Unfamiliar 22: James Gent

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 James Gent, who is stringing together hazy archive recollections of The Golden Oldie Picture Show, When The Wind Blows by David Bowie, Beeb Magazine, T-Rex ‘Greatest Hits’ albums with none of the hits on them, Boxpops, and the Montreux Special of Monty Python’s Flying Circus. Along the way we’ll be finding out what Clive Dunn being Grandad as Grandad looks like, where the whistling from Never Let Me Down was ‘borrowed’ from, and where you can read about Michael Sheard And His Pet Dogs.
