On my show this month:
There is a definite Chinese flavour to my show this month. After chancing upon a BBC programme on music from the Guizhou Province, I felt compelled to dig a bit deeper and unearthed some fascinating recordings, which have been sprinkled throughout December.
Alongside these crackers, I have selected two tracks from each of my favourite albums and EPs of the past few weeks, including the enigmatic Anna Meredith, the intelligent Jeffrey Lewis, caustic Andy Stott, scintillating Max Cooper, filmic A Winged Victory for the Sullen, melodic Low Roar, eclectic Kasper Bjørke and strife-torn Hermeth.
There are also two from the brilliant Clark, the latest, of course, from Surfbort and a smattering of tunes from around the world, including Mexico, Finland, Croatia, Kenya, Denmark, Norway, Germany, Japan, Chile and a good many countries besides.
And sneaking in at the eleventh hour of recording the show was Daniel Knox's hypnotic new single. You might also hear a couple of my favourite Christmas tunes if you listen carefully. Forty-plus songs for you - now how's that for good value?!

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.
