Pass It On: funny, fascinating and useful retro household tips from the 1950s

Painting and decorating Pt. 2

January 15, 2020

In this episode, Steve presents Connie and Chris with another list of – he says – sure-fire painting and decorating tips from the readers of The Sunday Post in the 1950s. But as usual, they’re sceptical, and as usual, they quickly find themselves on tangents. Plus, Steve reveals his favourite thing about paint, and if that’s not going to get you excitedly listening, we’re out of ideas.
