Andrew Morrison - January 2013
Andy's first show for 2013 features three hours of tracks from the very best releases over the last year - the vast majority of which you won't have heard him play before - including Human Don't Be Angry, The Horn The Hunt, Team Ghost, Breton, Ghost Society, The Twilight Sad, Errors, Stealing Sheep and many more. There's another chance to hear a couple of session tracks recorded exclusively for the show in the last twelve months from Cygnus X-1 and Atomizer, along with Scott's Funky Five Minutes. Andy's dad Barry returns to introduce a track from his record collection, plus there's an Andy's Old Chestnut by New Order, as well as a brief countdown of Andy's five favourite tracks of 2012.

Marcelle - January 2013
'Business as usual'

Business as usual for Marcelle in January 2013: an (almost) strictly vinyl show, with new wax, this month from amongst others Meier Und Erdmann, Peaking Lights, Boris Degenhart, Container, Schnauz, Pangaea, Old Apparatus, Elektro Guzzi and new Ethiopian tribal music. There's a few sensational new Mississippi label releases from Ottoman-Americans and harmonium wizardry from Gurdjieff. Bee Mask features with two albums, one being this month's Wax Across The Water. The Can box 'The Lost Tapes' is out as a 5lp box set at last and the Look Back Bores come from the a bit dated Farmer's Boys but also from the still fresh sounding Culture and (especially) The Box.

Mark Cunliffe - January 2013
As I gear up for Derbyshire's showcase January event "There's Nuffin Like A Puffin!" which isn't to be confused with the West End pipe smokers society of the same name, can I come up with any gems worthy of a Puffin classic in this month's show?
Well, The CB's are trying to get a Shure SM58 to run America so as to do what Biggie vs ATCQ are saying. S O H N is trying out the carvery at Holbrook's premiere hostelry. Fidlar ain't saying goodbye, the rascals and Singing Adams is enlisting the help of Stalin to complete his task though he could have picked the wrong ruler? DJ Curt thinks Butch Clancy is telling porkies and is gunna sort him out in no uncertain terms and there is a truly wonderful session from spoken word artist Penny Goring to look forward to ...

Mark Whitby - January 2013
January's show is the usual seasonally adjusted mix of things to be reasonably optimistic about for the new year, a few excellent releases that got lost in the Xmas rush and a session from someone particularly brilliant. This month's session guest certainly lives up to that billing. Christ. has produced a mammoth seven exclusive tracks a little less than a decade since his semi-legendary live appearance on the John Peel show at Maida Vale.
In the first category are tracks from new albums by Bent Cousin, The Joy Formidable and Pissed Jeans as well as the much anticipated return of Pere Ubu. The amazing Daddy Tank label looks set to continue to go from strength to strength with a blistering new Social Studies EP and there are a couple of tracks from my recent Unwashed Territories triple album compilation in support of Pussy Riot from Spidersleg and The Fall & Fall.
And in the second camp we have new tracks from The Sinatra Test and Earthling Society and a cracking B-side from Y that were so injudiciously overlooked in my December show, along with a whole load of stuff from bands and artists that helped make 2012 such a great year, including a track from the new Snailhead album, another track from the recent single from The Spook School and Flies On You covering Altered Images, no less.
As has become customary in a January show, we also take a look back at what was in the Festive Fifty of ten years ago and speculate wildly on what might have got into the chart forty years ago, had it existed then. Of course, recording such a show may well prove to be futile if the world really has ended by the time this reaches you, in which case ignore everything I've just said ...

Pete Jackson - January 2013
This month's Janus-headed show features some great tunes from 2012, including a couple of session classics from BeMyDelay and Lord Numb, and a first taste of what 2013 has to offer from the likes of The Black Twig Pickers and Subactive. There's new discoveries from label samplers from Planet Terror, 1-2-3-4 Go! and Soundway Records, and to celebrate my fifth anniversary at Dandelion Radio, a couple of proper classics from the vaults.

Starting the year with a packed three hour show, including new tracks from Allo Darlin'; Girls Names; Dusted; The Blue Aeroplanes; T.O.Y.S; The Lovely Eggs; Cheval Sombre; The Blanche Hudson Weekend; Snuff; Our Arthur; The Spook School and Northern Portrait.
Muddy Summers And The Dirty Field Whores kick off the show with their opinion of the Prime Minister, while later Wegrowbeards sing of the politics of the Crimean War.
There's electronica from Liz Cirelli; Auntie Flo; Pinch; and Rone. There's also new tracks from two decidedly left field producers from Philedelphia - Space Jesus, and Bee Mask; plus an excellent new 12" from Burial.
This month's Peel's Big 45 is also this month's Educating Elizabeth track, a soul classic from 1967 on Stax.
As well as little known acts, here's a little known fact: The Spook School are named after an influential group of artists and designers responsible for the "Glasgow Style" art movement of the late 19th century.

Sean Hocking - January 2013
This month on Ring of Fire we explore some of the new dubstep / raggatronicstep sounds from China, Philippines & Japan. Featuring artists such as Hong Kong's Kongkrete Bass crew, Red-i from Manila and new Japanese dubsteppers Ryoichi Ueno and Helktram amongst others.
After hearing about Jamica's obsession with Clarks shoes we couldn't resist playing Vybz Kartel's love song to these wonderful shoes, also we've got an oldie but goody from the Jolly Boys and as a way of saying thank-you to one Mr Serota of the Tate for making me try for 6 hours (see video on YouTube) in vain to get a Kraftwerk ticket.
Otherwise it's more of the usual stuff. A great new track from Canadian now settled in Sydney, Guerre. A classic slice of pop from NZ's The Clean and what would the show be with a track from Shanghai's Pairs.
