The Ricky Gervais Show on Xfm is where Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant first met Karl Pilkington. The trio, who have been talking drivel ever since, later went on to create one of the most downloaded podcasts in history.
This programme brings you the best bits from archived material from the first series of the Ricky Gervais Show featuring Stephen Merchant and Karl Pilkington and includes hilarious classics such as the Horse in the House, The Ricky Gervais Film Review and Karl's GCSE results.
Nothing to do with RSK
Just to clear this up, this was released by Xfm trying to cash in on their success. Its nothing to do with Ricky as Xfm do have the rights over these shows.
So, dont slag it off because Xfm do own the stuff and they are providing some of the best bits instead of having to trawl through hours of raw radio material
Itunes are now charging for free material?
This material was/is a public broadcast so therefore should be free. I doubt Ricky has had anything to do with this as he himself described it as public material and is a free broadcast for everyone to listen to. XFM probably owns the copyright and are able to sell it to iTunes without Ricky, Steve or Karl's consent. This material is FREE and has been available for download on Pilkipedia for months, which Ricky Gervais himself has said is one of his most faivourite fan sites ever.
Cashing in on the success of the Ricky Gervais audiobooks, Xfm are charging 3 quid for some chopped up clips of 8 year old radio material that's been freely available online for years, including on their own website. Ignore all five star reviews on here, blatantly written by Xfm employees, if you pay money for this you must be mad.
