Shocked and saddened at Marcelle's exit. What policy disagreement is she referring to? Don't know what to say. She certainly captured the spirit that makes Dandelion special.
Admin reply: We have decided not to elaborate. However, there still 2 shows to enjoy this month plus the archives on MixCloud and Marcelle still has at least one long-running show on a different station as well. In any case, hopefully you will still find plenty to both enjoy and stretch your listening across many of the other shows this month and into the future.
Very sad to hear that Marcelle is leaving. It seemed to me that the tracks she played exactly matched the stations motto, in fact, more so than any other DJ. I recently read the quote "Great art stretches the taste, it doesn't follow tastes" ... and this certainly applied to the content of all of Marcelle's shows.

Just a note to say I am saddened to hear that both Marcella and Paul Ackroyd are out. The time and effort each put into their shows was apparent and they gave Dandelion an added air of " leftfieldness" that will be missed. Thanks to both.
Hi Folks! Is there a way to listen to Dandelion on Android devices?...I have tried the player on the page and the 'Tunein" app, but neither of these work.....Is there another player you would recommend? Or am I just being dense? (always possible....!)
Admin reply: Am surprised that it did not work with Tunein - so will get that tested (maybe things broke after the server switch but am sure it was working fine this week). However, will email you a secret link to try a new web-based player that we have been experimenting with that should work on Android.
Did you guys ever get around to getting some Dandelion Radio T shirts together?
Admin reply: We never did because of the lack of demand - apart from a handful that we had made for us (you can see Rocker wearing one in some of the photos on out site). If a few more people confirm interest then we would look at doing it.

Superb, I just discovered this very fine radiostation. From now on you can call my a regular
Hi Soprano, The Chasms was good for a while, but I had a few problems of the mental health variety towards the end of last year and told the other two I needed a bit of a break from music for a while. That was about 6 months ago, and I've not heard from either of them since. So The Chasms are no more.
But if you (or anyone else) would like an mp3 disc of all the releases (sorry I don't have any of the proper cd's left) then just drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll burn a disc for you and pop it in the post for nowt.
And while I'm here (at the risk of this sounding like an Oscars speech!)... I'd like to thank all the Dandelion DJ's who supported The Chasms and played the tracks over the 4 years, and I'd also like to thank everyone that voted for us in the festive fifties or came to see us play. It meant a lot. Cheers,
