David Smith

On my show this month:
Is it time to travel again? No matter where you live, I will take you on an awesome journey to forty-three different nations to hear a wealth of musical treasures - no need for passports, rapid COVID tests, or vaccination records.
This international excursion includes an impressive range of eras and styles, including Thai shoegaze from Yellow Fang, French post-punk from Teledetente 666, Argentine tango (through a Frank Zappafilter) from Gotan Project, Maltese electronica from Llimbs, and a Swiss yodeling stunner.
But that's not all!
I've included amazing examples of Japanese ska with Oreskaband, Icelandic reggae from Hjálmar, and Finnish surf music from Laika and the Cosmonauts.
Enjoy!!

Biography:
Hello, my name is David Smith. I grew up in Detroit, Michigan, a perfect place to explore a wide variety of music via live shows and record shops. For the past twenty years I’ve been living in the Washington, DC area.

I've been a rabid collector of music all of my life, with a current collection of around 5,000 CDs and pieces of vinyl, plus uncounted numbers of live bootlegs, digital downloads, and cassettes. I've taken advantage of my world travels to buy records and CDs from all over the world, including the time when I bought a Xalam CD in Dakar, Senegal and nearly started a riot.

My aim at Dandelion Radio is to present an interesting and far-reaching collection of music each month, carefully selected and sequenced like that great mix tape you received from a friend all those years ago.
