Its…sort of…almost…Christmas! Time for a bubble of nonsense away from the reality of the previous week as Ben and Phil jump back to the eighties for a listener-suggested game of Christmas TV Schedule Wars. Its almost like one of them has a book out about it. The years 1981, 1985 and 1989 come under scrutiny for “Ratty Old Puppet Fun”, “Lethal Amounts of Cliff Richard”, “Christmas Dinner Sitcom Disasters”, “Shit Disney” and lots of “Things They’d Never Show Now” among other things selected by you lot.
Plus Smash Hits vs. the Queen’s Speech, Phil goes up against Tiffany (careful now) and the official worst things of 1989. Its promises to be…….on.
