- This article refers to the Russell Brand shows that Karl was briefly involved with. For Steve's 6Music Shows, see The Steve Show.
Later in April 2006, Russell Brand was given a regular Sunday afternoon slot on the station which replaced Liz Kershaw's show. Karl Pilkington was advertised as being his co-host and even appeared with him on the first few shows. However Karl mysteriously disappeared from the show, leaving some to speculate about a falling out between Pilkington and Brand. The actual reason for Karl's departure, as confirmed by Brand's co-presenter Trevor Lock, is that 6Music's desire to release a downloadable podcast of the show conflicted with Karl's commitment to The Ricky Gervais Show podcast. Karl has since appeared (via the phone) on The Russell Brand Show, talking about his holiday visit to a historic resort in Lyme Regis, Dorset and his recent viewing of Brokeback Mountain. Brand's 6Music radio show has placed as high as number two in the iTunes most-subscribed podcast chart.
