Jeff Grainger - December 2014
A bumper 4 hour December show? Or a futile attempt to display, what a fine musical experience 2014 was - you decide! Tracks from Goat, Shellac, SD Laika, Cuban Boys, Kasai Allstars, Millie & Andrea, Soundcarriers and Thurston Moore are small example of some of the many fine releases. There's a shed load of brand new stuff too from the likes of Songhoy Blues, LOVERS OPEN FIRE, Deers, Black Helicopters and Big Joanie.
Jeff will also be playing some of his favourite session tracks from this year including White Mary, Scrabbled, Factory Acts plus ILL's fabulous session in its entirety. Theres a brand new session from Costa Rica finest Los Waldners and, just to keep it seasonal, this months featured album is Small Bears wonderful compilation; Never mind the Baubles.

Kevin Robinson - December 2014
Not exactly a programme packed with yuletide favourites, but still a good one (I hope).
Guaranteed to kick those office parties into full swing, we've got Luke Vibert as his junglist alter ego Amen Andrews, thrash monsters Oozing Wound, post-punk sounds from The Skull Defekts and Useless Eaters, plus generous helpings of good shouty stuff from Nots and S.H.I.T.
From Brazil there's a new 7" from Rakta; from Mali there's a taster of the forthcoming Songhoy Blues album; from Egypt there's new material from musician Maurice Louca; and we've even got a Christmas tune from King Scratch from the Caribbean.
Off-kilter dance-floor compositions this month come from Vessel, Paula Temple Sully, Happy Meals, The Cyclist, and Silent Servant. Plus there's pummelling techno from AnD and Franck Vigroux, warped hip hop from Strange U, more excavations from the bottomless vaults of Muslimgauze, and the incredible debut of an 18 year old South London composer named Jire.
There's always some dub and reggae to warm your chilly December nights from Natural Numbers, Tuff Scout All Stars, a new tape from Hieronymus and a reconsideration of a classic Scientist album by Seekers International.
Finally, bringing the sleigh bells and spreading festive cheer, it's none other than ... Captain Beefheart.

Lee Adcock - December 2014
Merry merry, everyone! This truncated show features absolutely no festive content whatsoever, so if it's Xmas spirit you're seeking, you can tune out right now. However, if new music is on your wish list, then stick around and you will meet Tel Aviv weirdos Memory In Plant, demon summoner Anji Cheung, ghastly lo-fi rangers 808s And Greatest Hits, and others. Some old-timers and returning champs have popped in to the party, too, like Half Man Half Biscuit, The Black Watch, and Zed Bias. Primus volunteered to bring party favors - which means ya better double-check your goodie bags before you take 'em home. But anywho. I'll also be backward-gazing again, with some live Tunabunny by the fireside.
Also - I'm super-happy to report that dreamscape spelunker Dissolved is recording again, and I've reserved a slice of his next LP for this show. Hang on 'til the end, kiddos!

Mark Cunliffe - December 2014
This month's show has hip hop and grime from the likes of Pierce Artists, Wiley and Sammus. There's a b-side from the first EP from Grawl!x since they went from solo project to full band. There's a track from the latest EP offering from Sleaford Mods and there is a fabulous session from Mas Y Mas recorded by myself in a school hall, no less, in a place called Sneinton in Nottingham. Total infectious latin vibes all the way there.

Mark Whitby - December 2014
Fresh from their triumphant appearance on Lee Adcock's show last month, Papernut Cambridge are the session guests in a final show of 2014 that also includes, among other things, new releases from Clockwork Orchestra, Clark, Guerilla Toss and Malcolm Middleton & David Shrigley.
A masterful album from Venezuela's Fumaca Preta also figures, alongside a little something from Germany's Mosquito Ego and a fantastic Mexican/Australian hybrid going by the name of Mesa Cosa. There's a track from a solo album from the magnificent Brigitte Roussel and something from the recent platter by The Skull Defekts.
There are recent tracks from some of my favourite new discoveries of 2014, including Virgo, Jack n Bones and Qualchan. And of course, this being the month of the Festive Fifty broadcast, we Peel Back... twenty years to play three great tracks from the chart of 1994.
Oh, and the last half hour consists of Xmas tunes, including a brutal festive masterpiece courtesy of the very noisy Totally Pissed Off.

Mike Livesley - December 2014 24th/25th/26th only
A special just for the Christmas break - presented by Michael Livesley and Andrew Battersby
Why not kick off your slingbacks, take off your girdle, sit back and relax for an hour with Michael and Andrew as they present, for you, The Ghost of Christmas Pants.
Recorded live at Uncle Tubbo's lighthouse on the North Wales coast the show features the blokes they call 'the drunkards drunkards' discussing their scattered memories and music of Christmases gone by in their own inimitable and slurring way.
So, the fire is roaring, the places are set, the fridge is groaning with ale and there's a fresh 18 pack of Andrex in the bog. Our lighthouse jazz trio 'The Livettes' - featuring the world renowned Mr 'Nicely' Parrow on bass - are playing and so there is only one thing missing from this picture - you dear listener!
Merry Christmas!!

Rocker - December 2014
As usual a three-hour show from Rocker this month, including exclusive new sessions from Eureka California and Rita Lynch, as well as new tracks from The Manhattan Love Suicides; Caves; Aiden Moffat; Emmy The Great; Allo Darlin'; The Popguns; Melbourne Cans; Slum Of Legs; Tyrannosaurus Dead; Joanna Gruesome; Inspiral Carpets; The Wolfhounds; The Fireworks; and Cayetana.
There's electronica from Marc Romboy; Burial; Ron Flatter remixed by Microtrauma; TCF; DJ Rocca; and Simon Shackleton.
There's a stirring call to arms by the Marxist-Leninist Canadian Cultural Workers' Committee from 1979, and modern protest songs from Not Right and Swamp Dogg. Hard Left cover a song made famous by The Bay City Rollers, while Perfect Pussy tear apart and reconstruct a Sugarcubes song in their own image.
This month's Peel's Big 45 is folk anthem from 1970, while this month's Educating Elizabeth track is a classic Motown single from 1966.
As well as little known acts, here's a little known fact: Swamp Dogg, whose excellent new album is called "The White Man Made Me Do It", originally recorded under his real name, Jerry Williams, releasing at least one 7" which has become a Northern Soul classic - "If You Ask Me (Because I Love You)" from 1966.

Sean Hocking - December 2014
A special bumper December show to keep you occupied whilst the grey days and enforced jollity of December roll by. In Ring Of Fire we got 4 hours of old and new and hopefully until the last hour you've not heard any of it before.
We start this month with assorted religious nutters and Dj Foundation in 2014 mode. His hometown, Mosul, has been overun by ISIS we don't know if he's alive or dead. So we thought there's nothing he'd love us to do more than remind the world that religious extremism is a curse we could all do without. And there's our Christmas message to you all! We also feature NZ based drone artist RST in collaboration with Shanghai songstress Lenz. We also preview a track from the forthcoming Drakkar74 also to be released on Metal Postcard in early 2015. This album is, without doubt, the holy grail of Cambodian pre Khmer Rouge psych rock. It was understood to be lost to time but we tracked down the surviving Drakkar band members. Two survived the Killing Fields, two did not. Band leader Touch Tana is now to be found shaping environmental policy with the Cambodian government and after two years of cajoling, searching and re-discovering Metal Postcard will be bringing the people the first ever vinyl pressing of this album. The original was only ever available on cassette. The album touches on the golden age of Cambodian Pop & Rock but elements of Santana, The Incredible String Band, Cream,and Khmer folk also come through.
But enough of Metal Postcard ... we've also got on the show; Alternative TV, something new from Melbourne's No Zu, the Homosexuals, Lyons based Bass dj & producer Flore and a great bit of turntabilism from America's dj Craze who's had enough of button pushing edm dj's.
Beijing 's Gui Gui Sui Sui has also taken to dj'ing, of a style! Old gameboys picked up in Beijing second hand electronic markets fed through his collection of battered effects pedals make for the type of dj set you've not heard before.
In the last hour of the show it's time for a bit of nostalgia so I've thrown the tracks that have kept me coming back all year. Some are old and some are new. I hope you enjoy the selection.
