Leo Gilbert

On my show this month:
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.

On the show NEXT month:
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.

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.
