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!
