On my show this month:
My first show for Dandelion - or for anyone. One hour of tunes that are particularly delighting me just at the moment.
Perfection-style pop is represented by B.E.D., a collaboration between Baxter Dury, Etienne de Crecy and Delilah Holliday, with a goth-pop twist being provided by a track from Beach House's excellent new album.
Differing shades of electro come in the form of The Micronaut, The Field and Against All Logic. Left-field undefinable genre sounds arise from Lonnie Holley, Anchorsong and Hamish Kilgour - add a drum-driven twist and you have Adam Betts.
Waving the flag for the Scottish rock and roll scene we have an obscure group called Mogwai.

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.
