Andrew Morrison - February 2023
Andy's February show may only be one-hour long, but it efficiently packs in a lorry load of new music, including an exclusive session from West Wickhams, possibly the most exciting band to originate from the Isles Of Scilly in Cornwall, UK. You'll also hear new and recent releases from the likes of Alison Eales, Fake Empire, Memoria, Kety Fusco, Andy Bell and Slap Rash.

Brownbutter - February 2023
Brownbutter eases into the year with his 3-hour February show, but quickly finds all kinds of peaks to leap off into the cosmos.
His jetpack is willful, but it's fueled by the sounds of Run On, Pye Corner Audio, Non Plus Temps, Arca, Essential Logic and feeble little horse trotting through an MBV cover.

David Smith - February 2023
Greetings! 2023 is off to a hot start with plenty of great music already put out this year. I have new stuff from The C.I.A., Chini-png, The Brin, Kacimi, Mono Mondo, and Las Robertas. I also have a song from a great new boxset from The Fall, and a track from a very good Argentinian tribute album to The Pixies.

We mourn the passing of the great Terry Hall with a review of some music from The Specials and groups from the 2-Tone era. It is impossible to overstate the importance of that music. We also pay tribute to the great Jeff Beck with one of his many gems.

Enjoy the show!

Gareth Jones - February 2023
Gareth returns in February with a double dose of the regular feature 'Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue'.
The 1st hour is hosted by the electro duo Battery Operated Orchestra to coincide with the release of their new career-spanning compilation CD called 'We Are Ghosts'.
Then the 2nd hour is joined by guest host Juniper (daughter of WFMU DJ and singer-songwriter Michael Shelley) who has just released her second album called 'She Steals Candy'.
Gareth also serves up an electric array of new releases, from the punk-rock of Iggy Pop to the exotica vibes of The Tikiyaki Orchestra and the steel drum reggae sounds of Panoramic View.

Leo Gilbert - February 2023
Four fizzing hours this February from Leo, featuring forty four of the finest from far and wide – including Dublin's M(h)aol, Kety Fusco, Lycoriscoris, Fiona Soe Paing, Laila Sakini & Lucy Van and Interacción.
It's a particularly special show this month because Leo has gained special permission from Vicki Bennett of People Like Us to broadcast 30 minutes of one of the mixes she puts together for WFMU Radio in the USA.
Leo also pays tribute to Terry Hall, following his sad, untimely death in December.

Mark Cunliffe - February 2023
Hey. It has been a busy year for me but I've managed to listen to some new music. Nowhere near what I have done when doing regular shows on Dandelion but some. I hadn't really planned to do this show but then I got covid over Christmas and New Year and it's allowed me to catch up on all the tunes I'd found during the year but had just been sitting there. This show is all my favourite tracks from 2022. Not as comprhensive as it normally would be but I do think it's worth a listen and probably contains a good chunk of music you haven't previously heard. We shall see. I hope you enjoy it.

We enter the second month of the year with no let-up in the great music around. This includes new albums from Billy Nomates, Black Market Karma and Marlody, EPs from Mossambi, The Conspiracy and Neon Kittens and singles from Dez Dare, Manwel T and Gary Dread.
There's yet another version of 'Chaise Longue' knocking about, a remix from Unknown Mortal Orchestra plus, rather less predictably, a proposed Eurovision entry from Public Image Ltd.
Our featured compilation is a box set courtesy of Cherry Red and we've got three tracks from a set recorded live online by the marvellous Penfriend.

Mark Whitby on FSK - February 2023
Join Mark as he takes us through another two hours of his favourite new music, with brief glances at reissued gems from the past and a general focus on the interesting, the odd and the unfairly overlooked.
Rocker - February 2023
This month Rocker presents two hours of music, including a featured album from Meryl Streek, plus new tracks from Gina Birch; The Mudd Club; Shit Present; A Culture Of Killing; Go Fuck Yourself; Sleaford Mods; Strange Attractor; Muddy Summers And The Dirty Field Whores; MJ Hibbett; The Telephone Numbers; and Rough Kids.
There's electronica from Fango; Disfreq; and Paranoid London. There's also an ambient track from Drones And Debris - a collaboration between Liverpudlian poet / artist Paul Rooney and Icelandic cellist Gyða Valtýsdóttir.
Easy Star All-Stars take on David Bowie, and this month's Rocker's Shellac Attack is a 10" from 1929, on the Victor label out of NYC.
As well as little known acts, here's a little known fact: Texas-born vocalist Smith Ballew went on from recording records with his own orchestra in the late 1920s to become a 'singing cowboy', appearing in musical Westerns from the mid 1930s to the early 1950s.

Sean Hocking - February 2023
It's February and it is Bottom of the Pops on Dandelion Radio. What have we got for you this month? All the usual, dead rock stars, cheeky upstarts and everybody in between.
We start the show with a band I caught at the Vic in Dalston before leaving the mildly chilly UK for an overheated Sydney, Norwich's Bag of Cans who, if they can keep it together, might have a healthy future ahead of them.
Oodles of pub fun with lots of songs about drinking and getting drunk (remember Peel favourites Serious Drinking who were also from Norwich), not only that they've learnt some licks from the likes of James,. the Libertines and Franz Ferdinand too. Ones to watch for.
Also, out of Birmingham, Big Special who've taken a few tips from the Sleaford Mods (who hasn't?). They do it with just the right amount of verve and humour which ensure they don't stray into pasticheland. Both acts come highly recommended.
We also have new tunes from K Board & The Skreens (Milan), Smashing Red (Plymouth), Sproatly Smith (Rural Herefordshire) who I'm falling in love with very quickly due the fact that it's taken me many years to find another outfit who bathe in the same waters as Ultramarine did on the debut "Every Man & Woman Is A Star".
Also York's Neon Kittens have a new single out ahead of their February debut full length, The Postmen from Southampton and South African DJ Black Low who I played on repeat last year is back too.
This month's dead rock stars are Jeff Beck & David Crosby both of whom were interesting at certain points in time, so you'll be hearing some early Yardbirds and something off Crosby's solo outing "If I Could Only Remember My Name" which, it has to be said, is one of the best album titles ever.
I also chuck in that pil Eurovision entry, Richard H Kirk and a country song about liking Beef.
Thanks for listening
