Mark Whitby - November 2017
An exclusive session mix from Manfred Hamil is just one of many reasons to cock an ear in our direction while ushering in the long autumn nights. Others come thick and fast, including tracks from new albums by Lee Negin, Spartan Jet-Plex and Four Tet and a trio of cassette releases, courtesy of Sleep Movies, Appalachian Yard Art and the much-anticipated collaboration between Guerilla Toss and Jay Glass Dubs.
From France, we've got a track from the new album by Le Cercle De Mallissimalistes; there's something the new EPs from Poland's Przyzwoitosc and Italy's Dadar and some Portuguese dub from Mystic Fyah while, venturing beyond Europe, we find a track from Unlitt, from Brazil, a cracking reissue featuring Cameroon's Los Camaroes and Australians Piss Factory. Playing guitar on that last release is one Thomas Blatchford, whose debut show for Dandelion you can hear in this month's schedule.
And of course voting opens for this year's festive fifty so our Peel Back... feature reaches back forty years to play three tracks from the great one-off Peel-selected chart of 1977.

Rocker - November 2017
A packed three hour show as usual, this month includes new tracks from Mo Troper; The Just Joans; Desperate Journalist; Brad San Martin; Mammoth Penguins & Friends; CTMF; Billy Bragg; A Certain Smile; Lisa Bouvier; Champion Of Youth; Sunshine & The Rain; and The Treasures Of Mexico.
There's a whole slew of talent from Rocker's neighbourhood, Bristol, UK, including Plume Of Feathers; Gosa Vadd; Davey Woodward & The Winter Orphans; The Charlie Tipper Conspiracy; The Lovely Basement; and Gavin Osborn.
There's electronica from Solee & Alyne; Aaryon remixed by Aemes; Aaaron & Deckert feat. Valerie; Actress; and Boss Axis & Patrick Muschiol. There's a couple of essential reissues, from Basement 5, and Zazou, Bikaye and CY1.
This month's Rocker's Shellac Attack is a 78RPM 10-inch from 1956, played to commemorate a recently-deceased rock'n'roller, while this month's Educating Elizabeth record is also sadly posthumous, from the new LP from Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings.
As well as little known acts, here's this month's little known fact: This month I play a track by The Treasures Of Mexico, and I recently played tracks from the current LP by The Luxembourg Signal. These are the only two nations of the world which include an 'X' in their name.

Sean Hocking - November 2017
Another year gone, almost. How did that happen? The penultimate show of the year contains lots of great new music. In this show I'm particularly enthralled by the 3 new Metal Postcard releases that have just come out from DEF!CIT, Yea Big and the mighty dreamherbs.
Last month I happened to be in the UK so offered to drive the band 5 hours up to a Leeds gig. Not a successful outing, ten hours driving for literally 120 seconds on stage. The band, who I hasten to add, had been turned down to 10% of their normal volume were still way too loud for the locals and a quick exit had to be made to avoid a night of ensuing violence; ahhh! rock'n'roll is still alive!
We also very happy to be able to feature the latest release from Billinghurst's finest, The Suburban Homes and a new one from Jangly Mark & the Benefits. I do have to say apart from some of the rock crud coming out of Manchester at the moment and being pushed by the usual clueless press, music otherwise, is the healthiest its been for years in the UK.
I never thought I'd be featuring Eminem on the show, but, although not exactly subtle, his new rap about Trump is on the mark and worth at least one listen. On the international front we have arab band from the Golan Heights, TootArd, and their addictive mix of Ethiopian rhythms, Mali guitar stylings with a touch of reggae to top it all off. Or how about MilkyWhale from Iceland (Thank-you Ben) who make pop like it should sound in 2017.
Oldies from White Horse, Matt Finucane, The Carter Family and more. Don't miss around the hour and a half mark, the wonderful, "Meth" by Serengeti. The lyric talks about Derek and his Meth habit which is doubly odd as we just had a meth head (he lasted about a week) working in the restaurant called Derek.
By the way if you are a dreamherbs fan, do head over to Pete's show for a track from them.

Thomas Blatchford - November 2017
New presenter time! Stumbling into the Dandelion stable like a bewildered foal is Thomas with his first show direct from Melbourne, Australia.
Featuring: an armful of records by local bands such as Shrimpwitch, Heat Wave, RVG and The Pink Tiles; other Aussie acts including Stella Donnelly, Ziggy Ramo and Erasers; two songs about climate change; one song about the star of You've Got Mail; and, after the volume he played these songs at, the proof that Thomas is not a good neighbour.

Trev - November 2017
My second show is extended to three hours - the featured artist this month is Tricky and I play one song from his new LP 'Ununiform' and 2 songs from his vast back catalogue. Elsewhere the show is chock full of new punk, lo-fi, electronica, hip hop, indiepop and dub.
I always try and find as much new and exciting music to play and I think this month is an absolute feast with new stuff busting out of the internet waves.
Look out for scratchy DIY punk from the likes of gSp, D.U.D.S. and Razor Cunts. There is also a smattering of electronica, hip hop and some ambient noise stuff too - look out for belters from Open Mike Eagle, Yeah You, Octo Octa, Amu Aba and a whole lot more.
The Odd Box triple returns for its 2nd outing and that's two new ones from Rainbow Reservoir and Nervous Twitch and an 'oldie' from Frozy.
