Andrew Morrison - January 2023
Andy's first show in 2023 features an exclusive session from Bristol's Paragon Sea featuring new versions of tracks from 'Oh Look! Here It Comes', one the very best albums of last year. Andy recaps his highlights of 2022 by playing you almost all of his 20 favourite tracks of the year, featuring Sally Dige, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Ditz, Stain Of Light, Paul Draper and several more. You'll also hear brand new music including West Wickhams, Laura Cantrell, His Electro Blue Voice and Lust For Youth.

Andy participates in two other collaborative shows this month: January's '2022 Review', in which various Dandelion DJs select their picks from the last year; and the official 2022 Festive Fifty listeners' poll results countdown show.

Leo Gilbert - January 2023
Five hours’ worth yet again from Leo – and not a "best of 2022" in sight! There are just too many great new tunes coming his way at all times of the year, so he's opted to do what he always does: play them exclusively for you!
Leo was at pains to tell us that he believes this is one of his freshest, hottest collections of tunes ever, and that it really would be a tragedy if you were to miss his January show. So, what does he have on offer this month? Songs from all over the world and from every genre and none.
Big names such as these might entice you: Burial, Crack Cloud, Mdou Moctar, Giant Swan, Billy Nomates, Dylan Henner and Rival Consoles.
Or if you are more interested in lesser-known artists, how about these? Molly Joyce, Noémi Buchi, Seki Taneko, Zoë McPherson, Naujawanan Baidar and Joe Rainey.
There's something for everyone who has ears to hear, so welcome in the New Year with Leo on the wheels of steel.

Mark Whitby - January 2023
A whole load of great new releases are already scheduled for the early weeks of 2023 and we do our best to preview as many as possible here, with tracks from new albums by, among others, Quasi. Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs, Silver Biplanes, Diane Marie Kloba and Billy Nomates.
Our featured compilation comes from the Ace label, whose Guerilla Girls documents four decades of she-punks over four blistering sides of vinyl.
Inevitably, there are also releases that made it out at the end of 2022 which can't be ignored, among them singles from Swansea Sound and Hologram Teen, plus something from the recent Tobacco album.
Our Peel Back.. feature, as is common at this time of year, has a distinctive Festive Fifty slant.

Sean Hocking - January 2023
Another year and lots of fantastic music ahead. If it's as good as 2022 I'm excited already.
We start 2023 with a trio of songs from Australia. The Sydney music scene has been pretty dull for years but with bands like RMFC, Daughter Bat & The Lip Stings and the wonderful Gee Tee who's latest single, "I hate Driving In The City" has been my latest earworm. Also, anybody who's driven in the city in Sydney will know exactly what they are talking about! Ahead of Invasion Day, otherwise known as Australia day comes, "This Is Australia" by Marrugeku ... powerful stuff indeed and probably the best hip hop track Australia has ever produced. Also Hot Tubs out of Melbourne do their take on the Sleaford Mods thing and it works too.
Very sadly last month we lost a raft of important musical icons Terry Hall, Martin Duffy (Felt / Primal Scream), also, here at BOTP what's hit us hardest is losing Hamish Kilgour of The Clean. There's not much we can say except we remember him and The Clean as one of the finest outfits of their generation.
What else do we have in the show. A new release by Steve Mason, Falmouth's finest, The Golden Dregs are a great discovery as well as new UK outfit Hotel Lux. A fantastic cover of Joy Division's interzone by US outfit New Buck Biloxi has been getting many plays here.
Enjoy 4 hours of fabulous music to set us up for another year.

Legless TrialsRay's Kid Brother Is The Bomb   
Thomas Blatchford - January 2023
January is usually an odd month for The Thomas Show on Dandelion, and really what is there to look forward to in 2023 other than the new Blonde Revolver album?
But the show is laced with extra sadness this year, being recorded on the day Terry Hall died, and would be a complete downer without excellent new stuff from Wildfire Manwurrk, Nightwave, Clara Hope and former session guests CRASH THE SUPERYACHT, amongst others.
The ghost of Festive Fifties past arrives in the form of Ballboy and something by Art Brut makes your host well up.
Plus there's some jazz! Deal with it!
