Gareth has TWO shows for you this month. This regular show on December's Dandelion Radio schedule, plus a Xmas show will appear on Mixcloud (and broadcast on Germany's FSK on December 23rd).
The regular show is full of football fever, with three brand new World Cup singles and a forgotten footie classic from Cornelius.
Meanwhile the 2nd hour's guest presenter of 'Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue' is Sir Robert Orange Peel who will be introducing two tracks from his World Cup concept album called 'On The Game'.
Plus to escape the football, there are tracks from the reissued debut albums by Heavenly and Voice of the Beehive and plenty of new choons too.

Powered by Audioscrobbler™The Leaf Library is a British looping drone pop (and occasional space rock) band formed in 2005 in London.

Starting out in Reading after Matt Ashton’s previous band Saloon split in 2004. Ashton started writing and recording with vocalist Kate Gibson. After moving to London, they were joined by bassist Gareth Jones (from Wintergreen) and guitarist Ben Smith, Ashton’s housemate at the time. After a couple of temporary drummers, Lewis Young settled in for good, bringing with him an eclectic collection of synths and gadgets.

They released their first single Losing Places in 2008 via the Dutch label The Hooter Listens (which included a remix by Isan), followed by a second single on the French label Beko in 2010. In 2011 they released Different Activities, Similar Diversions, a compilation of various tracks and home recording experiments. 2014’s The Greater Good (part of the WIAIWYA singles club) gained heavy play on BBC 6music, and was followed by another 7”, Walking Backwards for the label in 2015. Daylight Versions is their debut album and was released in 2015 by WIAIWYA.
