KMKY gets off to a great start in the opening edition when Alan`s guests include a showjumper , an egotistical DJ and the world famous Roger Moore . No seriously Roger Moore is a guest on the first show . The later episodes drag slightly especially the French edition but KMKY picks up in the final two shows which feature Terry Norton a boxing promoter who has just beat a murder rap ( Alan kindly reconstructs the murder in question ) " Partridge Over Britain " which is a political debate , some revelations about Glen Ponder the band leader , and Joe Beasley and cheeky monkey - Abbadabadoo.
This is a really funny show which is very well remembered even though only six regular episodes and a Xmas special were made . This says an awful lot about the quality of the writing and performances . Perhaps the best compliment paid to the show is the fact that some viewers actually phoned up the BBC to complain about the content and the way Partridge treated his guests !!!!! I kid you not , some people didn`t realise this is a spoof chat show with Steve Coogan playing a comedy character called Alan Partridge !
And on that bombshell - AHA
