On the show NEXT month:
A massive musical month, June, for me. In fact I had to put two shows together to cover it.
One features very little me and a lot of music ... and my other has a towering 49 tunes from 40 different artists on 37 different labels, (possibly) drawn from half the globe. Holly Herndon has two, as do Maenad Veyl and Odd Nosdam, while Shlohmo, Lowly (their album Hifalutin in my favourite of the year so far) and Lakker have three apiece.
A bewildering number of outstanding albums and individual tracks have been released over the past few months, and they jostle for a place in my show, with most of them artists who are new to me (and to you?): Charlotte Adigéry, Crack Cloud, Curses, Did Virgo, Enea Pascal, Grebenstein & Seefried, Just Mustard, kandodo3, Mall Grab + Nite Fleit... I could go on.
Huge, as I say, and a real privilege for me to be able to share them with you. Why not buy every single one?

Biography:
I am in many ways your typical John Peel fan. I grew up listening to his shows from the era of punk rock until his death, and, with increasing obsessiveness, compiled cassettes, mini discs and finally mp3 playlists of the best tunes. Music runs through my family’s veins, and in me this takes the form of a compulsive search for new sounds. As John Peel used to put it, what I really want to hear is something I haven’t heard before.

Envy fills me when I read what my Dandelion collaborators have achieved in promoting, making and playing music, but my life as a teacher for the past quarter of a century has squeezed out any time for, well, pretty much anything apart from listening to and appreciating what continues to be made musically across the world. At last, though, I have found the space to pursue what has long been an ambition and can attempt to meet the stellar broadcasting standards set by my volunteer colleagues by sharing my love of new music with Dandelion listeners. I really hope at least some of what you hear gets its hooks into you.
