About Steve Merchant’s Posse
The Steve Show was, for a brief period from January 2007 to May 2009, a radio show. With guests, talking, news on the half-hour, and everything.
Helmed by Stephen Merchant and assisted by various hangers-on, the show was broadcast on BBC 6Music every Sunday (except when we were on holiday, which was quite often). We tried to provide an eclectic musical smorgasbord – freed from the tyrannical constraints of the playlist, we played whatever we wanted, whenever we wanted, unless it had a massive bit of swearing in it.
Listeners would be invited to share their favourite tunes with us and the rest of the audience, and in that spirit of sharing, giving, and intermingling, this blog was born.
Stephen Merchant is, frankly, way too busy for this sort of thing. He’ll contribute from time to time, but come on, blogging? Seriously? There ain’t no BAFTAs for blogging.
Luckily, his old sidekicks have little better to do than get excited about music and offer up their thoughts here for your interest, excitement, and smart-arse comments.
Dan, Harry, Rufus and Sammy will regularly post here to discuss recent finds, long-forgotten favourites, and whatever else may spill from their brains, dribble through their fingers and splatter onto your screen.
steveshowposse.com is without doubt the best place to get the occasional thoughts of the people who used to laugh in the background on what was one of 6Music’s most listened-to shows between 3.30 and 5.30 on a Sunday afternoon.
