Bonus episode list
Here's the best #content from the bonus podcast episodes, those times that Elis and John sat in for other presenters to cover their shows on Xfm / Radio X. A few of the bonus episodes were simply compilations of highlights from the regular show, so haven't been included here as the individual episodes are all covered in the main episode list. The bonus episodes weren't numbered, but have been given a 'B' (for bonus!) number here.

- Commercial Radio's 5th Emergency Service
Pull over to the side of the road when safe to do so, because here comes Commercial digital indie radio's 5th emergency service, Elis James and John Robins.
Surprisingly, after Dave's technical mishap yesterday, Radio X top brass have let the boys continue carrying Johnny Vaghan's flame on Drive this week.
Today's show featured talk about John's morning shower, Humblebrag of the Day PLUS the boys chat to a listener, who has a Petty Rage he wants to bring up.

Due to Ricky Wilson's ongoing court case John sat in the broadcasting chair for the second week on a Sunday between the hours of 10am-1pm. During the three hours he consumed some Indie Landfill, Humble Brags and flexed his Queen obsession to breaking point.

- Ricky Wilson Takeover
Special treat for you devotees as Elis & John broadcasted for the second time this weekend, covering for Radio X's Ricky Wilson. They took on one of his features - Indie Landfill - as well as introducing their own Humble Brag Of The Week, but mainly the show was a Queen forum. Also includes one of the greatest texts ever received, concerning hangover shame spirals, Suede and a toilet.
