Andrew Morrison - October 2020
Andy's two-hour October show includes a broad selection of the electronic, the alternative, the ambient, and even a touch of the sweeping classical. For the second month in a row, Andy features three songs from his favourite album so far this year, 'Commitment' by Gothenburg's Skuldpadda. Other artists in the show include Retropolis, Jasmin Albash, Kelly Lee Owens, The Raveonettes, Anna Meredith, Ghostlawns, plus brand new singles from Makola, Black Honey and Arab Strap - yes, a completely new song from Andy's favourite band Arab Strap! An extraordinarily rare 1994 live recording from another of Andy's favourite bands, The Fatima Mansions, also appears as 'Andy's Old Chestnut'.

Gareth Jones - October 2020
It's an extended 3-hour show from Gareth in October, as he brings you his annual Halloween Spooktacular! In the first hour, there's a super spooky scary edition of 'Secret Songs from the Sixties', including Ted Cassidy as Lurch from The Addams Family and a groovy French yé-yé song about Dracula by Christine Pilzner. Then in the final hour, there's a howling, horrifying non-stop Halloween monster mix. Hear ten tracks about ghosts, ghoulies, vampires, werewolves, the devil and hell, including new tracks by Arch Garrison and Hell Boulevard
Besides those musical tricks and treats, there's also plenty of new releases, spanning Indiepop, Electro, Funk & Soul, Hip-Hop and more. These include new singles by Dandelion favourites MJ Hibbett & The Validators and a collaboration between Japan's GOOFY18 and Dandelion Radio's very own Blu and Skreen B (AKA The Beatbox Saboteurs) under their guise as Life As Surface Noise. Plus a new previously unreleased track by Cardiacs and much much more.

Leo Gilbert - October 2020
Leo returns to the Dandelion airwaves with a four-hour show, pulling together just some of the many great tunes he has unearthed recently.
Most of the tracks this month are from singles or EPs, rather than albums, which is a bit of shift, the significance of which Leo is pondering.
He was particularly excited to be able to include the new releases from Canadian combo Suuns, fellow Canadian Efrim Manuel Menuck and London-based Jockstrap (two from them).
As ever, the music has a global feel, with tunes from South Africa (LR Groove and Toya Delazy) Ireland (Girl Band), Scotland (Arab Strap), Finland (Amnesia Scanner), Angola (Nazar), Norway (Biosphere), Australia (Tame Impala and The Avalanches), Mexico (Edgar Mondragón), Italy (Frank Sinutre), Tanzania (Bamba Pana) and many others besides.
It's a feast, right?

Mark Cunliffe - October 2020
The music releases continue apace and for that we are all grateful. This month's show sees Lady Chann come at us with her usual fire and JJ Lacey has more silky production to tantalise.
O/Y creates and amazing house track while there is something from new artist Judy Granville who only learnt the guitar and started making music in her 60's. It's never too late, eh?
Fay Hield has a new record out and a track is featured here. Also, new Leeds band, Yard Act feature off their latest release.

Mark Whitby - October 2020
What happens when humans concentrate their energies on international cooperation rather than barriers? You get brilliant collaborations such as the Japanese-Colombian EP from Minyo Crusaders and Frente Cumbiero, or the Scottish-Italian crossover from The Alien Cormorant and Gold Mass, both of which feature in the show this month, as do Gooooose, from China, who teams up with Berlin-based DJ Scotch Egg (originally from Japan of course) and, also from Japan, Goofy18, who get together with England's Life As Surface Noise, with predictably stunning results.
We've also got a session this month from Kill The Giants and two featured compilations, from the Houndstooth and House of Beauty labels, plus cracking new releases from the likes of Tobacco, Les Chouettes, Molchat Doma and Vert:x, plus a reactivated Indonesian split cassette release from 2017, a reissue of a Nigerian classic from Ofege and another in what's becoming an unmissable series of Crass remixes.

Pete Jackson - October 2020
October brings again a reminder of the ongoing absence of John Peel, so this month there's a few nods in his direction, including a couple of Peel sessions tracks from CUD and Nico and a tune heard once on a Peel show in around 1987 and never forgotten.
Lots of new music too, of course, from Taiwanese acts Mong Tong and Super Napkin, Costa Ricans No Base Trio, Italy's Black Goblin and Switzerland's Cyril Cyril, alongside some returning favourites like Richard Norris, The Flaming Lips and Thee Oh Sees (now trading as Osees) and tracks from not one but two new albums from lockdown's most prolific son Jason Beers.

Rocker - October 2020
Two hours from Rocker this month, bringing you new music from Cult Figures; Milky Wimpshake; Lonely Tourist; The Total Rejection; All Ashore!; Pardon Us; Arrest! Charlie Tipper; Jetstream Pony; The Manges; The Drain On The Balcony; Swansea Sound; Dumb Punts; The Flatmates; Woog Riots; The Persian Leaps and The Luxembourg Signal.
Like all sane people Wreckless Eric and Amy Rigsby say 'Vote That Fucker Out!', while Robb Johnson sings of Tony Skinner's lad Dennis. Woog Riots extol the virtues of the good scientist.
There's electronica from Ron Flatter and Dapayk Solo. Vert:x gets a remix from a couple of Chasms. Capitol 1212 and Earl 16 take on Joy Division, while Asian Dub Foundation feature Stewart Lee.
There's a new release on the Owd Scrat label. That sentence should be enough to make any radio show worth a listen!
This month's Educating Elizabeth record is a brand new 7" on the Daptone record label; while this month's Rocker's Shellac Attack is a slice of original rock'n'roll from 1957.
As well as little known acts, here's a little known fact: Tony Skinner's lad Dennis was the oldest sitting MP in the House Of Commons from 2017 to 2019, following in the footsteps of Winston Churchill, Ian Paisley and Michael Foot.

Sean Hocking - October 2020
Special treats all round in October with not one, but two sessions! We've got sessions from two of our favourite UK outfits of 2020 in this month's show, Salem Trials & Santa Sprees. A real treat here at Ring of Fire land and we hope you feel the same too.
The show is also jam packed with new releases from the likes of Mattiel out of the US, The Shifters (Melbourne), Bottin (Venice), Clipping (LA) and many more including a song about hating the North Pole!
It's exciting to hear Sydney have a sound again. It's been years since this city has produced exciting locally bred bands with a specific sound. Last year we started playing you RMFC and Nick Nuisance and now we're hearing more beachy lo-fi punk sound equally inspired by The Fall and LA 80s cultsters the Surf Punx with acts like Gee Tee and the best named band of the years far ... Daughter Bat & The Lip Stings releasing singles. Hopefully we'll be getting to see them on stage sooner rather than later.
We feature a couple of Belgian New Beat 12"s, dubsters Blackmarket giving a fresh take on the Beach Boys & Bowie, some 60s Asia psych pop and lots lots more.

Thomas Blatchford - October 2020
With Melbourne still under curfew - heavily suggesting more evenings spent in bed trawling Bandcamp - Thomas' show for October is another bumper three-hour affair with almost fifty new songs for your amusement and delight. This edition is dedicated to the recently covid-ly deceased Toots Hibbert of Toots And The Maytals fame, who wrote the first three songs of the show this month, giving you the listener more than adequate excuse to jump about.
'Monkey Man' may not be about an actual monkey, but is 'Crazy Frog' by Xylitol about an actual frog? Or 'Country Pancake' by reissued eighties psych-punks The Bachelor Pad really about dessert? Also thanks to Nikk for introducing us to a sluricane. Throw in a peanut cup, some juice, I want popcorn and pass me my shades, and now we're talking.
Plus, Thomas dips into some favourite albums of the past quarter by Dream Nails, Beans, Andy One, Phelimuncasi and Lady Di, or was it Mega Emotion? There's also the intro to an opera about working in an airport, or hosting the Generation Game, or something, haven't quite worked out what yet. Oh and some guzheng to top it all off, why not?
