Leo Gilbert There is no show from Leo Gilbert this month

On the show NEXT month:
Music from around the globe, from newcomers and old stalwarts, from the 70s and the 2020s. Three hours crammed to bursting point this month from Leo, with a minimum of chat and a maximum of musical cheer, to offset the gloom that has descended on the world over the past few months.
Working in total isolation, Leo has concocted a cracker of a show, curating creations from (in strict alphabetical order) Alice Boman, Baxter Dury, Brainwaltzera, Broken Up, Caribou, Dan Deacon, De Kift (very special favourites), Eluvium, Flight Of The Conchords, HAAi, Holy Fuck (of course), iGod, Jan St. Werner (with Mark E Smith - heard of him?), John Peel (yes, the great man himself), Loke Rahbek & Frederik Valentin, Long Arm (brilliant), Lorenzo BITW, Lung Dart, Macka B (vegan icon, even if he does say so himself!), (the very odd) Odd Nosdam, Perfume Genius, Porridge Radio (like everybody else, I know, but they are very good), Pottery, Röyksopp, Saint Abdullah, Sarah Mary Chadwick, Seabear, Sleaford Mods, Syv de Blare, VST and Company (Philippino swingers), Wayne Phoenix, Wire (amazing that after so many decades they are still making such vital music) and the Yandong Grand Singers.
After reading a roll call like that, you absolutely will not want to miss a second of Leo's April show.

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.
