The Steve Show was the unofficial name for Steve's show on BBC 6Music, which ran from January 2007 to April 2009. In the show, Steve was joined by long-time friends Dan, Harry, and Rufus who were, in the best possible sense, nobodies. The show focused on music more than banter but was not without its comedic and anecdotal elements. Steve brought some old Xfm features into his show, including Hip-Hop Hooray and Mr Cover-Cover (formerly known as Cover Me Up). The show also introduced many of its own unique features such as 'Songs to Seduce Women By','The Fiendishly Difficult Music Question', and 'Songs to Nurse a Broken Heart'.
