    "Love KP!!!!!"

    You would think that a show with this format would reach a height and then go on a big slump, luckily for me and all of Ricky, Steves and Karl fans that just hasn't happened. I downloaded this on the day of release and have listened to it many times since and the well of endless hillarity that is Karls orange like head is still overflowing. Highly reccomend this and all the shows the trio have done, don't forget the X-fm radio shows. Well worth a listen. Cannot wait for philosophy!!!!!
