Duo will appear on XFM between 9pm and 12am
Russell Brand and Noel Gallagher are set to host a one-off radio show on XFM tonight (March 18).
The pair became mates after Gallagher was a guest on Brand’s BBC 6Music show before it was taken off air following ‘Sachsgate’ in 2008. The Xfm show will mark the first time the pair have recorded a radio show together since 2011 and will also see Brand’s former 6Music cohorts Matt Morgan and Mr Gee involved too. It will be broadcast between 9pm and 12am.
