Mark Cunliffe - December 2013
December is upon us and I was first in the queue for a ticket for the Fossil Handling Session at Leicester's New Walk Museum & Art Gallery, nothing I like more than getting hold of a nice Trilobite ...
Not going pre-historic on this month's show, so what have I got??? Wizard is going about things like Tomas Brolin at the end of his football career where he couldn't even do what Ward 21 are talking about. Nots are going to give Mars a spring clean which I hope doesn't make them go into what Xylitol is on about.
There's a featured album from none other than Chris T-T and a wonderful session from Derby based Biscuit Mouth that I recorded at their rehearsal room in Derby city centre.

Mark Whitby - December 2013
While much of my December show is of a decidedly non-festive hue, we do allow ourselves a nod in the direction of the season with an exclusive xmas-themed session from The Pocket Gods. Perry Como it ain't, though.
As usual at this time of year, my favourite ten bands or artists who got in touch during the year are paraded in the annual Listen To Me top ten, while plenty of other favourites of 2013 are present too: among them, something from the new Harlequin Dynamite Marching Band single, something from recent albums from Mark Wynn, The Spook School and Churn Milk Joan albums, a new track from Midget Ninjas and some more put-hairs-on-yer-chest stuff from the excellent Nnevteiga.
Elsewhere, we feature a couple of tunes from an EP of Cramps covers - courtesy of Birds Are Alive and King Automatic - and another intoxicating release from the Italian [label]Boring Machines[/artist] label in an international cast that also includes Australia's Hollow Press, Brazil's Orumm and an extraordinary release from Ethiopia, featuring the incredible Yilma Hailu.
Among other offerings, we also Peel Back... twenty years to feature three highlights from the Festive Fifty of 1993. And I reckon Mr Peel would have loved the very idea of Venetian Snares remixing David Lynch: somehow the result turns out to be even more wonderful than the concept.
Also listen out for another show from me - a Truly Festive Festive Fifty.

Rocker - December 2013
As usual a three hour show packed with new music - including a featured album from Bristol's Hazel Winter, and tracks from The Wolfhounds; Liechtenstein; Robb Johnson; Martha; Girl One And The Grease Guns; Teen Canteen; La Luz; Sock Puppets; The Wednesday Club; Pete Gioconda; Dutch Barn; Cinerama; Caves; Fireworks; Flowers; Joanna Gruesome; and Good Grief.
There's electronica from Agoria; Ryan Davis; LB Dub Corps; and Trummor & Orgel. Nils Frahm is remixed by Max Cooper.
Wild Billy Childish crops up twice in his guise as one of CTMF, once on a track from their newest album, and once as a guest on the debut release from former-Headcoatees Shall I Say Quoi.
This month's Educating Elizabeth record is from a new reissue of a classic soul album from 1971, while this month's Peel's Big 45 is from 1972 on the mighty Atlantic label.
As well as little known acts, here's a little known fact: LB Dub Corps is a dub-influenced side project of techno DJ Luke Slater.

Sean Hocking - December 2013
Another year almost finished and I have to say it has been a great one for new music from the Pacific Rim region and especially from the USA's Pacific NW with bands like White Fang morphing into supplementary acts such as the wonderful Memories and Free Weed plus up in Seattle the, soon to be loved by everyone, Rose Windows.
Who can't love a band that has equal parts Big Brother and the Holding Company, The Incredible String Band and Black Mountain.
In my December I play my usual pick of new tunes from the Asia Pacific region, a few end of year selfish selections and a top 20 of my personal favourites from the year.
I hope you enjoy listening as much as I enjoyed putting the show together
