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 Una McCormack, who is absolutely certain that she hasn’t just made up school songbook Ta-Ra-Ra Boom-De-Ay, Screw-Top Virgin Marys, Desert Wellies, Elizabeth Enright’s Melendy Family novels, Jackanory series Tales From The Edge Of The World, and short-lived toy craze Trick Sticks. Along the way we’ll be finding out why asking about ‘Mr. Benn Men’ in school is frowned on, how to attract boys from the school across the brook by rolling up your socks and narrowing your tie, and why you can’t hide a pierced ear from Jesus. Also, there’s LIVE YO-YO TRICKS!
