PS - The 'and Frinds' shows for BBC 2 have happened every year with a different comedian hosting. I repacked the Dara O'Brian one from 2006 and the Sean Lock one from 2008 a while back however i cant find the 2 episodes for Alan Carr from 2007 anywhere. If anyone has them, i would love to have a listen if you could upload. If you want this description template just gimmie a shout and i will send you a txt file with it in or something.
