Thomas Blatchford

On my show this month:
Thomas - as has been asserted on the show before - tends to consider nostalgia as a disease, but has gone slightly soft this month in celebrating the 15th anniversary of Dandelion Radio. The last quarter of this episode is given over to tunes that would've been played on The Thomas Show if it existed when the station was founded in 2006. Having been given an immediate audial Proustian rush by Listen With Sarah, talk soon turns to indie discos, hyperactive "IDM" (remember that?) and foul-mouthed children, as well as the vintage of the 2006 Festive Fifty.
Back to now, though, and this month also has K5, a song called KEK, a K9 remix, mention of an artist called K-65, and a huge Keith / Kwame collaboration. OK?
Plus utterly splendid new singles from Bad Bangs, RBI, Nwando Ebizie, Plaster of Paris, Bo Ningen and the like. Music is my boyfriend, and we noticed you from across the bar...

Biography:

Thomas Blatchford was born in Southampton (UK) but has now lived for over a decade in Birraranga (aka Melbourne, Australia). An avid listener to the John Peel show between 2000-2004 (first show: May 3rd 2000, with Kid Koala in session), Thomas tries to make up for the disappointment of never having a Peel session by always being in at least five bands simultaneously (which currently includes - genuinely - an acappella glam metal trio). Thomas previously ran the bedroom record label Fulsome Prism Recordings, and was also involved with another DIY imprint, Helen Llewelyn Product Nineteen, way back when. Thomas still occasionally makes fanzines even though it is no longer 1981, and works in a discount bookshop to make ends meet.
