Can’t Help Thinking About Christmas



Can’t Help Thinking About Christmas is a special stocking-filling companion to the year’s best-selling book about obscure radio shows and films nobody remembers Can’t Help Thinking About Me, and includes the following seasonal trimmings:

 – A collection of reviews of some of the worst sitcom Christmas Specials ever made (and a couple of good ones too!) 

– A Christmas Party Medley of nonsense about carol services, BBC Records And Tapes, mind-hurtingly strange Christmas Films, and when some Brookdale kids tried to steal ‘the disco’ in Grange Hill 

– The story behind BBC Schools programme Music Time‘s adaptation of Lieutenant Kije 

– Features on Saint Etienne Presents Songs For A London Winter and Santa Claus Is On The Dole by Spitting Image 

– The ultimate guide to Denys Fisher’s TV tie-in board games 

– And a brand new feature on the little-seen Rising Damp Christmas Special!  

All of the previously-seen pieces are updated with new footnotes, introductions and extra detail – yes, we finally know who wrote the theme to George And The Dragon! – and there are a couple of extra Yuletide surprises too. It’s probably only going to be available during December, so grab your copy now!

Can’t Help Thinking About Christmas is available in paperback here or from the Kindle store here.






And if you still haven't got it, Can't Help Thinking About Me is available in paperback here or from the Kindle store here.

Looks Unfamiliar #32: Vikki Gregorich And Jeff Lewis – No It’s Just A Radio That’s Been Left On



Looks Unfamiliar 32: Vikki Gregorich And Jeff Lewis

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 are Game Developer Jeff Lewis and Board Game Collector Vikki Gregorich, who are going back three spaces in the hope of finding anyone else who remembers Animalympics, Conrad’s War, The Last American, the books of Paul Biegel, Harry Harrison’s Deathworld series and The Secret Cabaret. Along the way we’ll be evaluating the lack of viable life choices for anyone named ‘Ulysses S. Pilgrim’, debating the identity of ‘soft lad who stood on a pole’, and perusing adverts for Genuine One Hundred Percent Legal Generic Seeds.

Looks Unfamiliar 31: Mark Thompson

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 political commentator Mark Thompson, who's offering his polling predictions for the chances of people remembering hillbilly-themed soft drink Moonshine, the A. Mazing Monsters books, L!ve TV's Agony, Being Erica, Hawkeye Collins And Amy Adams, and Channel 5 sketch show We Know Where You Live. Along the way we'll be revisiting the forgotten link between Rupert And The Frog Song and Cannibal Holocaust, speculating on how many hours of L!ve TV Richard Herring might have watched, and learning the terrible fate of The Sheep That Knew Too Much.
