Brand's Back... One Time Only

RUSSELL BRAND's return to radio after his firing from BBC RADIO 2 over the "SACHSGATE" controversy is set for SUNDAY at 9p, as his pre-recorded soccer show with OASIS' NOEL GALLAGHER will air on UTV national U.K. Sports station TALKSPORT.
BRAND, the comedian and actor ("FORGETTING SARAH MARSHALL"), has been off radio since OCTOBER 25th, the week after he and guest JONATHAN ROSS left a rude message on actor ANDREW SACHS' voicemail. The soccer show is a one-time affair but TALKSPORT PD MOZ DEE tells the GUARDIAN that he would like BRAND AND GALLAGHER to do more for the station. "We would like them to do more but their diaries are just a nightmare. RUSSELL has movies scheduled this year and next and NOEL is on tour with OASIS. They are genuine football fans and fantastic talk radio talent."
