Looks Unfamiliar #21: Darrell Maclaine – The Russ Abbot’s Madhouse Cosplay Kit



Looks Unfamiliar 21 – Darrell Maclaine

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 designer Darrell Maclaine, who shares his hazy recollections of Carols At Christmas by The Greater Manchester Police Choir Featuring The Cast Of Coronation Street, FunFax: Disguise And False Identity, Rubik’s Clock, The Brennan JB7 Advert, The VTech Master Video Painter and The Children’s BBC Broom Cupboard 1996 April Fool’s Day Hoax. Along the way we’ll be debating whether the Chief Constable Of Greater Manchester was Paul Morley or Phil Spector, contemplating the legend of Patrick Bossert’s Rubik Elves, learning how to fake having a limp by having a limp, and discovering how to hide your copy of True Identity on VHS in plain sight.

Looks Unfamiliar Summer Extra: "No More Giant Breads For Us"


Looks Unfamiliar Summer Extra: "No More Giant Breads For Us"

As a special extra Summer treat for Looks Unfamiliar listeners, here’s a compilation of highlights from the archives, with extracts from Summer-themed podcasts by Tim Worthington, Ben Baker, Phil Catterall and Darrell Maclaine. A lot of this hasn’t been available for years, and a lot of it is still rather funny, so we hope you enjoy it! Along the way we talk about Summer Holiday television, Rat On The Road, Wimbledon, The Radio 1 Roadshow, Why Don't You? and Now - The Summer Album; rate the best and worst holiday camps and end of the pier variety acts; and lend an ear to some zany hilarious 'rude' records for fun DJs in wacky nightclubs. We'll also be finding out how to distinguish between different iterations of Mark Curry, what constitutes Roland Rat Canon, what happened when The Grumbleweeds went post-Blue Jam, and what Paul Shane definitely did not do to supplement his Hi-De-Hi! income. Not to mention visiting a Hardwicke House Roadshow.

Looks Unfamiliar 20 - Paul Kirkley

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.

Along the way we'll be finding out what Robert Smith takes on holiday, what happens when Dick Turpin runs head first at Sapphire And Steel, and why you should never obey Musical Youth lyrics to the letter.
