The six-headed comedy band The Horne Section are launching a brand-new series of their chart-topping podcast The Horne Section Podcast.
For the first time ever, the band will also live stream an episode at 8pm on Friday 2 April, with tickets available from dice.fm.
The live streamed show of the iTunes comedy chart topping No 1 podcast, and Shortlists’ Best Comedy Podcast will be interactive, inviting those who have purchased tickets to send song requests and any questions to the band, using the hashtag #HorneSectionRequests.
The new series will feature special guests Nina Conti (Live At The Apollo, BBC One), Rachel Parris (The Mash Report, BBC Two), and Jessica Knappett (Judge Romesh, Dave) among many more who will join in the band in the basement for music, games and laughs.
Previously the podcast featured Robbie Williams recording a new version of Angels, Reggie Watts, Sir Chris Hoy, and Greg Davies.
News of the new series comes after The Horne Section collaborated with Romesh Ranganathan’s Hip Hop Saved My Life podcast in an exclusive podcast mashup with Acast and Comic Relief to raise money for Red Nose Day.
The Horne Section are: Alex Horne (band leader), Joe Auckland (trumpet and banjo), Mark Brown (saxophone and guitar), Will Collier (bass), Ben Reynolds (drums and percussion) and Ed Sheldrake (keyboards).
The band’s TV credits include being the in-house band on BBC One’s Peter Crouch: Save Our Summer, which Horne also co-hosted, and Channel 4’s The Last Leg including Last Leg Christmas Special and Last Leg: The Last Leg of the Year.
They have featured in Dictionary Corner on 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown (Channel 4), The Royal Variety Performance 2018 (ITV), as well as the Two-hour special The Horne Section Television Programme on UKTV’s Dave filmed at the London Palladium.
The band have previously hosted three series of Alex Horne Presents The Horne Section on BBC Radio 4. They have enjoyed numerous sold-out nationwide tours and will be back on the road with rescheduled dates for the critically acclaimed show That’s How I Like My Tour later this year.
