Andrew Morrison

Following specials looking back over the last decade in January and February, Andy's two-hour March show features almost entirely new releases, including Sally Dige, Dan Deacon, Daniel Maunick, I Break Horses, AV AV AV, Human Don't Be Angry, and Anna Meredith. Interspersed throughout the show, he also features over 30 minutes of tunes either written, produced or remixed by the wonderful and unique Andrew Weatherall, who tragically passed away in February - think of it as a non-exclusive session in the form of four 'Andy's Old Chestnuts'. Andy didn't realise just how much these productions had accompanied his exploratory musical journeys from teenager to middle age until he whittled down Weatherall's work to a meagre four selections for this show.

In the mad month of March, I'll be bringing you 2 hours packed with new releases and one or two lost classics. To mark International Women's Day on March 8th, we've new songs by female artists from France including Juniore, Spain including Lisasinson and Japan from Otoboke Beaver, plus two tracks from 1966 by Barbara Lynn and Cheryl Gray in this month's edition of 'Secret Songs from the Sixties'.
In the 2nd hour I'll be joined by all three members of the post-punk band Shopping for a chat and introducing four songs of their choice in the occasional feature 'Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue'. And where might you go shopping? At the Cornershop perhaps? So we indulge in a 9-minute track from their new album 'England Is A Garden'.

So, Yeah! Jeff's back on the Dandelion airwaves and not on his own either as he's joined by his more than competent 13 year old son Alfie.
Together, over 2 hours, they'll be playing some delightful finds; such as The Maitlands, Thee Windom Earles, Yowl, Boy Azooga, COW, Bengal Sound, Batu & Lurka, Khan, Carol Hodge, Horsey, Mdou Moctar and Wych Elm.
For all us old timers there's a brand new remix of a Blacmange classic and this months featured album is the delicious "LÉVE LÉVE : Sao Tomé & Principe sounds 70s-80s" compilation.
Along with the usual mispronunciations and interruptions from (fifty shades of) Gary the cat. It's business as usual.

Finding new music that excites never gets old. I've had another enthusiastic month and, hopefully, you'll enjoy a good portion of the results.
Sleeparchive has been on form of late and this month is no exception. There is another track from Bumble Bee Crown King and, from an Issata Sheriff heads up, a track by Seb.T.
We have some black metal in the form of Nimbifer and baile funk from Dark Lord. There is a featured album from SonnyJim & Giallo Point and there would have been a featured album from Shopping but I, sadly, only had space for one track.
There is also a fabulous session from a favourite of the show, Mari Dangerfield.

In what is a truly global extravaganza this month, our featured compilation is the second volume of the Guadaloupe-based Disques Debs International retrospective and there's a live excerpt from stunning Japanese band The Jungles!!!. Also from Japan, we've got something from the new OOIOO album and a track from yet another ace Thomas Imposter compilation. From Europe, we feature a track from the excellent new album from Dutch artist rOZZ, another new release from noisy Estonians Threes And Will, a demo from Eszeles from Budapest, something else from the wonderful album from France's Nursery and, as you might expect, a look ahead to the forthcoming new album from Madrid's Hinds.
We've got plenty of stuff from closer to home too, including a cracking brace of Welsh language releases from Adwaith and HMS Morris and joining them as show debutants are the feisty Cherokee Death Cats and the quirky Roman Angelos. Meanwhile, Sir Robert Orange Peel pays tribute to Sid Vicious in suitably arch manner, Consenting Adults pretend to be The Beatles and Tingle In The Netherlands deliver their own inimitable commentary on a much-discussed part of Gwyneth Paltrow's anatomy.

Pete Jackson

Two more hours of priceless tunes this month, with a bigger than usual dollop of electronic and dance music from the likes of Guilt Attendant, LeCoughSki and a track from the fantastic new Squarepusher album, squidged in next to South American psych from The Holydrug Couple and Lorelle Meets The Obsolite, some traditional 1940s Balkan dance music, more funky Turkish disco and two tracks with the same title seperated by a good 50 years - one of which is an epic 7" from 'lost' UK psychedleic legends The Factory.

Rocker

A three hour show from Rocker this month, with new tracks from The Cravats; The Tubs; Close Lobsters; Toodles & The Hectic Pity; Cult Figures; Charmpit; Girlatones; Reverse; En Attendant Ana; Guided By Voices; Seablite; The Flatmates; GUMS!; The Just Joans; Mark McDowell & Friends; Dropkick; Jeanines and and Dark Thoughts.
No sessions this month but instead we bring you a featured album - it's the new compilation 'Rebel Rousers - The Best Of Rebels Volume One', from Bristol's Raving Pop Blast records - featuring some of the best of the current UK garage scene. It's a benefit album for childhood cancer support charity CLIC Sargent.
There's electronica from Marc Romboy; Teho; Jonathan Kaspar and Mathame as well as a show-closer from the sadly missed Andrew Weatherall.
Screaming Females take on a Neil Young classic, and in the light of current events we play a classic from Beau, recorded in 1975.
This month's Educating Elizabeth record is a 1964 release from a band from North Carolina made up of US marines; while this month's Rocker's Shellac Attack is a 1932 release documenting the ill effects of smoking jazz cigarettes.
As well as little known acts, here's a little known fact: Cab Calloway - 'The Hi-De-Ho Man' - was the first black American to release a million-selling record, and the first to have a nationally syndicated radio show.

This month we are very excited to have Klammer in session, they have provided a stonking set of tracks, one from each album plus something new. Talking of new, we have recent releases from Peaness, Yasuyuki Uesugi, Adorns, Neon Anesthetics and the always colourful, Lijo.
The featured album is our very own Highly Curated - Volume One compilation, with quality tunes from Oh! You Pretty Things, Alkanes and Elucidate.
A chaotic show held together with string and the best new music around. Enjoy!

Of course the deaths of 20th century rock and pop titans is just going to continue as we hurtle through this new decade, but both Andy Gill and Andrew Weatherall exerted a gargantuan influence on heaps of music that, let's face it, Thomas is very fond of. They both have songs played in their honour this month. 
Also featured is: new singles from DRMNGNOW, Wasted Shirt, Fizzler and Lady Di; three angry/disappointed songs released on Valentine's Day; more music helping to raise money for Australian Bushfire relief efforts from Sports Bra, Tiddas, Pinch Points and more; and an acidic tribute to The Crystal Maze.
Plus look out for one Wilhelm scream secreted somewhere in the show. Away baby, let's go!

This month the show is a little different from my usual kinda show as I feature a number of bands scheduled to play Wales Goes Pop! here in Cardiff over the Easter weekend this April.
So expect songs from The Darling Buds, The Flatmates, Big Joanie, Cheerbleederz, Rae Spoon, Boxcat and Slagheap amongst others.
Elsewhere we have new music from former Odd Box alumni The Monorals, The Humms and Night Pain (ex Giant Burger) and also there is also a focus on Welsh acts for the show following an internet shout-out for recommendations from Wales - so expect to hear songs from Red Telephone, Blue Amber, Rosehip Teahouse, Head Noise, Juice Menace and Heavy Flames.
And finally in shop corner we have two oldies from Keith Christmas and The Homosexuals.
All in all, 2 hours of great music!
