Vote now in the 2021 Festive 50!

Voting is open for the Festive Fifty

Here is what is currently playing on Dandelion Radio

Thomas has an exclusive session in November from Maxine Gillon, who is - consults notes - "known primarily in the Sydney music scene for her abrasive ear-splitting lead guitar work in post-punk band Second Idol", but meanwhile "Maxine Gillon's solo singer-songwriter output reflects a more muted, introspective and literate side to her musical identity." The exquisite session includes two previously unheard new'uns, one song from Maxine's 2020 EP 'The Six Strings of Sappho', and a nod to one of the great Peel Session creators of our age.
Speaking of Peel Sessions, the show opens with an all-timer from Delta 5, in tribute to the recent departure of frontperson Julz Sale. Thomas implores you to vote in this year's Festive Fifty - it comes round quicker every year, doesn’t it? - and features a handful of hotline-related songs from the recent past.
There's a brace of tracks from a new tape by Australians stuck in lockdown, and a ditty about a dog goes up against a tune about an eel (also I definitely heard a frog at some point). Plus new things from Bored Lord, Bitumen, Baker Boy, Blawan, Malice, Mosca and many more.
