In Andy's two-hour December show, he continues last month's theme of getting you in the mood for the results of this year's Festive Fifty listeners' poll by playing you his three favourite songs from past years - this time 1982 and 2000. There's new music from Birds In The Brickwork, Cherry Glazerr, Slowdive, Tired Cossack, Roberta Fidora, MGMT, R. Missing, Black Honey, the first new track released from Epic45's forthcoming new album, plus a sublime synthpop cover from Sally Shapiro on the Italians Do It Better label. There are also three Christmas themed alternative tunes.

Remember to listen to the Official 2023 Festive Fifty results show repeating every day from Christmas Day until the end of January only here on Dandelion Radio.

Brownbutter - December 2023
Brownbutter shares his favorite tracks from 2023 in this juicy three-hour show, but somehow can't manages to fit Empty Country and Blonde Redhead. Sigh.
Make sure you fit them in your best of 2023. Still, hell of a show.

David Smith - December 2023
2023 has been an awesome year for music, and great new releases keep pouring out of the spigot. This month I have new merchandise from Descartes à Kant, Class Act, Office Dog, Collate, Blue Dolphin, Righter, The Serfs, Frankie, Sugar Tradition and, after a ten year wait, Marnie Stern! There is also a superb new collection of B-sides and rarities from Superchunk who did the impossible - they performed an excellent cover of a song by SS Decontrol! Wow.
I'll list a few of my favorite releases of 2023 in the early December edition of the Dandelion Radio newsletter, so be sure to subscribe - it is on the right hand side of most of the pages on our web site.
Enjoy the show!

Leo Gilbert - December 2023
Five hours of irresistible music from Leo this December, and not a single mention of Christmas!
Three outstanding albums – those by World's End Girlfriend, Reverend Kristin Michael Hayter and Øxn – have knocked Leo for six over the past few weeks, so he shares songs from these collections in this month's show, alongside excellent tunes from Water From Your Eyes, Maya Al Khaldi, Shackleton & Wacław Zimpel and We Are The Willows & Orchid Eaton.
He also has tracks from two compilation albums: My Greatest Revenge: Flamenco Recordings, 1904-1938 and Copasetic! The Mod Ska Sound along with a fabulous tune from the father of Libyan Reggae, Ibrahim Hesnawi.
And there is so much more besides! Dive in and enjoy the sound of December 2023.

Mark Cunliffe - December 2023
Well, there has been a lot going on this year. The world has been, and continues to be in turmoil in so many ways. Music not only charts it all but can provide a degree of escape for some. Music isn't my only outlet but is a big outlet for me, as I'm sure it probably is for plenty of you, too.
What has December got in store then? There is more from the world of Jellyfish Punch and DOSS come back with another Glasgow shaped bang. I'm finally including an overlooked Mari Dangerfield track (sorry Mari) and Ukraine's Troye Zillia provide some magic.
I've got new (to me) artists like Spawny, u426, RPN, Derby's Kez and how the night came.
This month's featured artist is a hip hop beatmaker who is very new to me and is crazy good at making brilliant hip hop and goes by the name of Beekool as part of the Da Unitz collective.
There are stacks more packed into the three hours, you know what to do?

Mark Whitby - December 2023
Being December, we do our best to feature the best Xmas tunes of the year, including a few highlights from this year's Cherryade album, though the main focus is, as always, on digging out the best new tunes to emerge at the end of the year.
In that spirit, we feature new albums from Mutabaruka, Frog, Shackleton and Katy J. Pearson, among others, as well as looking ahead to 2024 releases from Dez Dare and Bob Vylan.
We also play three tracks from the new Human Worth compilation and tunes from the live extravaganzas from Cat Power and Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs, while leaving room, naturally, to Peel Back... thirty years and play three entries from the 1993 Festive Fifty.

Rocker - December 2023
Two hours from Rocker this month, including new tracks from Jetstream Pony; The Reds, Pinks And Purples; Diablofurs; The Hermitts; Blue Ocean; The Drain On The Balcony; Big Mess; Witching Waves; Foodman; Golden Apples; and Honesty.
There's a featured album from Walthamstow's finest Steve White & The Protest Family, and electronica from Radio Slave remixed by Superpitcher; and Darkskye remixed by Factoria.
This month's Rocker's Shellac Attack is a 1956 release on the Sun record label out of Memphis, Tennessee, while this month's Educating Elizabeth record is a brand new seasonal release from the Daptone record label.
As well as little known acts, here's a little known fact: The Basildon Bond brand of writing paper was established in 1911 by John Dickinson & Co. of Hertfordshire. By 1932 it was the best selling brand of writing paper in the UK.

Sean Hocking - December 2023
We've reached the end of another great year of new music.
One that has brought us the likes of Bar Italia, Jean Mignon, Frog Power, Strange Dream and too many more to mention. All of these and many more feature in this month's 3 hour show.
We also have ... new out of Jakarta, the BRMC sounding "Crayola Eyes" and their fab debut album.
A dancefloor killer from Floating Points. Denver's Dead Pioneers who are one of the best punk bands I've heard in eons. The anger is palpable and given the subject matter entirely appropriate and relevant.
Finland's Penza Penza come up with the song title of the month, "The World Of High-Voltage Badgers".
Paris based Acid Arab are back with a new tune and plenty more aural assaults for your ears.
Have a great Christmas (for those who celebrate it) and new year and I can't wait to bring you the musical delights of 2024.

Thomas Blatchford - December 2023
The end of the year show for Thomas starts with the crooning of a digital ghost and ends with an ode to death, and what could be more festive than that?
The soundtrack to purchasing a 2024 calendar includes new and bold hits from Calyx, Barkaa, Fish From Tahiti, Our Carlson and Boggle, plus a VIP mix, an RIP mix, and a “Northern Rivers Brake and Exhaust mix" from Toecutter.
And what's more, there's something other than daily streams of the Festive Fifty to look forward to in January - a new 5CD The Fall boxset from Cherry Red! God bless us, every one!

X-Ray Moon - December 2023
An hour long show from X-Ray this month.
There are new tracks from, for example, Daft Punk and Vincent Neil Emerson.
There are tracks from 2022, such as the wonderful Bury Me In My Shoes from the marvellously named London-based group TV Priest ... As well as this and more, there are classic avant-garde tracks from CAN and a long-since-forgotten fabulous track by Yoko Ono.
All finished off with a Punk Christmas track.
For those whose toes are feeling frost-bitten, or whose fingers are numb, and for those who are missing those crazy never-ending poetic sunsets of springtime, this is an X-Ray Moon stocking filler that will butter your toast, mash your parsnips, pull your wishbone, tickle your funny bone, give the dog a bone, and roast your chestnuts (don’t fall asleep too close to the fire Uncle Barnacle).
Pull your crackers, unwrap your satsumas and enjoy an hour of Christmas-cakey-style grooviness from X-Ray Moon, who wishes us all a good one! And says he’ll see us all again the other side of the festive season – in a hangover-recovered 2024.
Have fun everyone!!!
