Andrew Morrison

On my show this month:
There are two shows from Andy on Dandelion Radio in October. His regular two-hour show includes new music from We Show Up On Radar, Daniel Maunick, Trupa Trupa, Malcolm Middleton's alter ego Human Don't Be Angry, Epic45 and MOLLY. In addition, there are selections from new albums by Lust For Youth (who Andy was excited to finally see live in Camden Town last month), Lingua Nada and Ezra Furman (both of whom he'll being seeing live in October and November respectively). There's an impressive live rendition of Andy's favourite New Order song 'Shellshock' from their recent live CD, and also listen in for two songs whose titles reference this very station, including a country song seemingly named after it - or is this simply a massive coincidence...?

Elsewhere in the October schedule, you'll hear Andy's Peel Session Archives, marking 15 years since the death of BBC Radio 1's John Peel - the DJ who inspired Dandelion Radio (yes, it really has been that long). This hour-long special features twelve classic session tracks recorded exclusively for John's show between 1970 and 2001 from Peel stalwarts such as Curve, Joy Division, Syd Barrett, The Wedding Present, PJ Harvey, Inspiral Carpets, Pulp and - of course - The Fall.

On the show NEXT month:
Andy's two-hour November show features recent releases from multiple acts including M. Rexen, Georgia, Ezra Furman, Human Don't Be Angry, Eli Moon, Lust For Youth, Exit Kid and DJ Shadow. You'll hear tracks from two albums Andy's been eagerly anticipating: Lingua Nada's 'Djinn' on the always excellent Kapitan Platte label, and the warm deep house grooves of 'Macumba Quebrada' by Daniel Maunick.

An 'Andy's Old Chestnut' appears in the form of an ultra-rare recording one of Andy's favourite bands The Fatima Mansions, taken from a radio-only promo CD of a live performance in New York back from 1994. Also listen in to find out how to vote your three favourite tracks of the year in the official 2019 Festive Fifty!

"Brilliant... reminded me what radio should be about" (Cygnus X-1)
"Grotesquely self indulgent, but why not?" (John Peel, 15/7/2004)

From Portsmouth in southern England, I was the voice of BBC Radio 1's John Peel show, providing the spoken word 'offensive content' announcements, which can be heard here. I also recorded announcements and title music for Radio 1's Rob Da Bank One Music show.  I was interviewed by Radio 1 in October 2005 for a documentary about the life and legacy of John Peel.  Listen to it online here.

I was one of the founding members of Dandelion Radio and have been presenting a monthly show since its inception in 2006. This follows my previous experience presenting a weekly show for Portsmouth Hospital Radio back in the late 90s. I've also appeared on Rob Da Bank's Bestival FM and Portsmouth's Express FM. I occasionally spin tunes out and about, with highlights so far including DJing at Danish band Alex Canasta's album launch party in Copenhagen, and supporting Autons, Forest Giants and King Of Spain at the Shoreditch Cargo, London. I also have a wide-ranging background of music production, performing, remixing and engineering.
