Podcast 297: This is our Everest, Part Forty-Three – Miss Anglia, 1980

by | May 27, 2021

On this week’s This Is Our Everest your heroes have their swimming costumes ready to go for the beauty contest-come-cattle auction that was Miss Anglia 1980, the kind of awful, degrading bullshit that was more or less completely obsolete at least a decade before this programme was broadcast and yet somehow or other still a thing in 1980. It stirs thoughts and feelings in your regular judging panel, who are taken aback both by Vince Hill’s age and his undeniable Rainbow pedigree; reveal how often Ian thinks about Dr. Hook and are pleased to see the Peter Fenn Orchestra called from the bar.

Meanwhile, Ian inexplicably turns out to have an encylopaedic knowledge of a musical turn that Edward has never heard of, with predictable consequences. And, at last, he also reveals that he has climbed aboard the ducks eating peas train. It’s possibly the only positive thing that could have come out of this avalanche of old tripe. Nevertheless, if you’d like to watch it you can find it here: part 1, part 2, and part 3.
