Andy's two-hour March show includes tunes from The Raveonettes, The Big Pink, MGMT, Drift, Mark Peters, His Electro Blue Voice, Slowdive, The Pony Collaboration, Norma, Broken Social Scene and many more. You'll also hear a very dramatic Public Service Broadcasting remix of a track from Paul Draper's latest album.

I did a 1 hour Dandelion show back in December, but in an attempt to prove I'm not just here for Christmas, I'm also here for Easter and the mad month of March. I felt that perhaps one hour was not an oeuf, so I've eggs-tended it to two hours this time.
There are some cracking new bands and artists coming up for you to shell out your money on, including France's Musique Chienne and Japan's Chai plus tracks from new albums hatched by old favourites like Go-Kart MozartCalexico and of course the always eggs-cellent The Lovely Eggs.
But it's not all about the new as I present two retro musical features: 'Secret Songs From The Sixties', this time featuring a curio from Gene Pitney and a psychedelic football record! Plus 'Soundtracks of the Strange', presenting weird movie scores, with tracks taken from 1972's Requiem For A Vampire and 1967's Bedazzled. And in celebration of the new Daytrip Records Kinks tribute album 'This Is My Street', I've chosen four Kinks cover versions including The School and Cardiacs.
It all promises to be a musical eggs-travaganza, and that's no yolk.

A packed March show includes a cracking session mix from The Tinopener's Art and two featured compilations: the sixth volume of 'You Don't Have To Be Fashionable' from the With A Messy Head label and the third volume of 'Post-Trash', a mammoth collection that donates all proceeds to hurricane relief efforts in Puerto Rico.
There are tracks from new albums by show favourites Jack Hayter and Cloud and a couple of long-established outfits Can Can Heads and Nocturnal Emissions, plus a new single from the always wonderful The Piskie Sits.
Meanwhile, entirely new to the show are Prison Shower, Indonesians Grrrl Gang and Sweden's Skiftande Enheter while, not before time, we catch up with what The Pony Collaboration are up to and, in a more retrospective mood, Peel Back... to what John Peel was featuring in his shows 40, 30 and 20 years ago this month.

Another international edition, with sounds coming from as far afield as Japan, Chile, Italy (loads of new releases on the always reliable Boring Machines label of Turin), Wales, Canada, Spain and the good ol' US of A - though some of these were recorded in the 1950s, and everyone knows the past is a foreign country.
There's new tunes from some old favourites, like Istanbul Hippodrome, Anthroprophh, Hookworms, The Night Programme and Revbjelde, new favourites such as Toxacara Canis, ANMLS and Crimewolf, and old tunes from both catagories - expect Funkadelic and The Fall, Horace Sprott and Mogwai among others.

A two hour show this month, full of new music, including an exclusive debut session from Glass Angel.
There are new tracks from Kudzu; Beau; The Total Rejection; Ash; The Spook School; Chemtrails; Rainbow Reservoir; Courtney Barnett; The Monorals; Bedford Falls; and El Morgan & The Divers.
There's electronica from ANNA; Will Easton; and The Micronaut, plus a 14 minute epic from Jonny Kinkaid & The Original Nowhere Band.
This month's Rocker's Shellac Attack is a 1944 blues out of New York City, while this month's Educating Elizabeth record is a classic from 1968, played in memory of Dennis Edwards, who sadly passed away in February.
As well as little known acts, here's this month's little known fact: Bedford Falls take their name from the township which features in the classic Frank Capra movie It's A Wonderful Life, which many believe was based on the real town of Seneca Falls, in New York State.

I'm hoping you'll enjoy the good mix of music that Ring of Fire has for you this month. We've got a couple of things from Ben of The Pops including one of the best covers of "I Wanna Be Your Dog" I've ever heard; put it this way. It sent me scurrying around the interweb scouring for more.
New music from the likes of neu hip UK popsters, Superorganism, Newcastle's, Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs throw us a slab of noise with lemmyisms and Pinch's new 12" isn't leaving the turntable any time soon.
There's some older tunes from the likes of The Modern Lovers and personal rockabilly favourite, Glenn Willings. We travel to Moscow to hear Glintshake, Cambodia to hear Radio Bokor & Mexico City for Silverio. Personal "Club in my head" favourites this month are DJ Plant Texture & Jaines Bomt.
I don't know about you but if we're going to have a hot summer after this winter of discontent there's going to be some great music to party and riot to.

The Beatbox Saboteurs Show

Despite having our debut show aired throughout February, we have somehow managed to evade being escorted from the Dandelion Radio building and we are back to entertain you once again.
This month's show is packed with some tremendous music, including some off-the-radar tracks by Elf & Stacy, Fullmarx and Callum Wilson, some off-the-wall-of-death Psychic Circus craziness, some off-the-scale Italian noise from Maxcarnage, along with some off-the-telly lo-fi chic from The Veils.
Our love affair with Computer Magic continues (swoon), as we delve further into her back catalogue whilst resisting the temptation to follow her track with a play of the Wonder Woman theme (we did look but couldn't find anything good or bad enough). We have been raiding Bandcamp a fair bit this month, and we present a couple of spectacular discoveries in the form of a Spanish band called Uniforms and the wonderfully eloquent Nolika.
We've also been catching up with a few releases from Analogue Electronic Whatever, Wild Billy Childish's CTMF, Gypsy Hill and New Apostles. So, some absolutely terrific sounds will be flying out of your speakers. Trust us.
If that wasn't enough, at no extra cost, there's even a bonus electro mix hour including Silas Neptune, Cloud, Lauge & Baba Gnohm, FSOL, Ambidextrous, Lazerpunk, Lustmord, Venetian Snares, Moss Printen, Mac Quayle & Network 23.

It's bloody March already and Thomas still has some Mark E Smith related content he wants to play despite the marathon tribute you all got on this station recently - in fact, there seems to be an unusually high quota of golden gassers from yesteryear in this month's show generally, including: the slight return of darkwave giants Mollusc; the feted unearthing of an unheard Television Personalities gem; vintage beef from Lee 'Scratch' Perry; and a classic cut from Dandelion's newest stablemates The Beatbox Saboteurs in case they don't play it themselves.
But don't fret, there's plenty of shiny new things too, such as the first new material in half a decade from The Fish Police, two dazzlers from the recent The Native Cats LP, Tectonic's hundredth release, two drummers fighting, angels, dogs, polyamory, broccoli, and literally more besides.

An icy cold blast is hitting the UK as I recorded this show, so this month is packed with great new music to keep you warm. With music from all over this planet of ours from the likes of The Spook School, Shopping, Hookworms, Punch Cards, Jherok Bischoff, DJ Katapila, The Understudies, Kumasi, BB and The Blips, East Man & Saint P and my home city of Cardiff is represented by the the excellent new band Peril and that's just a taster as to what is crammed into the 3 hours of selections for March.
The featured artist this month are post rock pioneers Hood who have 3 of their songs dotted throughout the show and in the Odd Box Records triple hits hard with energetic blasts of DIYPOP from The Give It Ups, The Wendy Darlings and Rainbow Reservoir.
