The Official 2009 Festive Fifty - January 2010
Continuing a Christmas tradition started by the late broadcaster John Peel in 1976, an assortment of our DJs count down through the best 50 tracks from 2009, as voted for by listeners to Dandelion Radio. Pete Jackson, Rachael, Matt, Greg, Ste, Mark Cunliffe, Andy, Jeff, Kath, Mark Whitby and Yank take it in turns to reveal the chart in reverse order, with Rocker announcing this year's winner!
To try to keep the suspense in the countdown, the track info is not shown until a few seconds before each song finishes. The show is repeated every day (at different times) until the end of January so if you join in somewhere in the middle, do come back and hear the rest.

Andrew Morrison - January 2010
Andy begins the New Year with an exclusive half-hour mix from Rival Consoles, smashing together tracks from debut album 'IO' with brand new tunes and unheard remixes. Andy also picks highlights from the last year with a selection of session tracks recorded for his show, including tunes from Davey MacManus of The Crimea, Martin Carr, The Aphrodisiacs, Atomizer, Small Crew and Block 45. There are more 2009 favourites such as Yeti Lane, Samuraj Cities, The Horrors, and Hyperdub Records. Scott introduces a Funky Five Minutes, and there's a competition to win the new album by Lucas Renney. Andy appears elsewhere in January's schedule as a guest co-presenter of Rocker's special 50th birthday show. Also listen out for the 2009 Festive Fifty countdown show repeating at different times every day until the end of the month!

Greg Healey - January 2010
The last meat has been picked from the turkey's carcass and the Christmas decorations have begun to collect dust. So, resolutions in mind, we must cure those hangover blues. Unfortunately, paranoia is never far away when one is recovering from too many days of beer, wine, turkey and mince pies.
With wonderful lo-fi magic from New York's Nun Party, edgy, rambling, oddness from Farmer Joe & The Ignorant Corpses, and stylish jazz imbued electronica from Bitbasic, to name but three of the artists in this month's two hour show, we are set up for whatever sensations 2010 has in store for us.
All this, plus a wholly appropriate and timely visit from our old friends Anni Hogan and Nick Cave.

Jeff Grainger - January 2010
Jeff's New Year resolution for an entire cock up free show alas falls at the first*! As tragically the 180gs Exclusive and the session sent by The Rain Bonnets refused to play!
However there are still two brilliant sessions to be enjoyed by; Wrexham's finest Billygonebad, who teams up with Names Are For Toe Tags and from Russia, Asian Women On The Telephone.
There's another sneaky look back at some of Jeff's highlights of 2009 (Dry The River, This Beautiful Hunger and Rev Porl), plus first time Dandelion Radio outings for Kharacho, Persian Claws, Peopling and Haus Frauen Experiment.

*Hopefully he'll get it right for next month

Marcelle - January 2010

In her first show of the year Marcelle writes history by playing music not from a record, cd, cassette, computer, tape or download but from a device called 'Gristleism'.
It took her some 90 minutes to get the device working so in the mean time she played new exciting music from the likes of FM Einheit & Irmler, September Collective, The Melodramatic Monkey, Alva Noto, Twisted, Vindicatrix and Balkan'oliks.
As always with Marcelle, anything is possible: she even found some time to play some bad record from her (former?) favourite band. In fact, this month's show is so utterly hysterical that the listener is going to laugh his or her head off in the last ten minutes.

Mark Cunliffe - January 2010
T'was a Turkey that stuffed me this Christmas, I lost 8 - 1 to a 18 stone rooster in my local's fancy dress charity table football tournament. I drowned my sorrows with a few pints of Tickly Gizzard in the snug so all was not lost ...
So, what freshness can I provide in my first show in 2010? I've got Le Peuple De L'Herbe trawling the Yellow Pages for a dealer and Guilty Simpson is polishing his brass knobs which isn't very gangsta ... Alasdair Roberts has found what Le Peuple De L'Herbe are looking for ... and how!
Wet Dog have only been paddling and Cotti and Doctor have been watching re-run's of Nick Griffin on Newsnight. Emcee Killa is spitting pea shooters and Clare And The Reasons have cornered the demijohn market.
It's a January show that's going to fly around in a way Akira Kiteshi definitely knows all about. Nice one ...

Mark Whitby - January 2010
2010 starts with a not inconsiderable bang generated by the excitement of an exclusive session from The Owls Are Not What They Seem and a whole raft of fine new releases from the likes of Gonjasufi, Witch Porn and Beach House.
Established favourites of the show like The Coffee & TV Wreck and Kottarashky return on top form, Pixieguts makes sweet music with DJ Sid The Apocalypse and the prolific Spidersleg remixes the enigmatic Julien Auroux.
Amidst all this newness we have a specially extended Peel Back & Sniff including a couple of spectacular ghosts of festive fifties past and a final farewell to the latter days of 2009 in the shape of an epic from the amazing Sex Worker.

Matt Jones - January 2010
As it's New Year, Matt digs out some tunes by artists (mostly) new to him. So we have music from all over the shop, with Evangelista, Saskrotch, Sephirot, Ducktails, Eaters, Wschxx, Bako Dagnon, Ragga Lox, Jambassa and Tarran the Tailor representing a flavour of the intriguing bleeping, shouting, tribal banjo soundscape, 8 bit, african, reggae and dub cocktail that is being served.
What's more there is a new album from Titus 12 to dig and delve into alongside a load more that there simply isn't space to mention.

Rocker - January 2010
This month's three-hour show is a special show to commemorate me reaching my half-century. It features my "Traffic Island Discs" - these are the records which I would choose to load onto my iPod if I were to be marooned on a traffic island - and if I owned an iPod.
Since there is so much good new music around with which to fill my shows, I rarely look back at the music which has shaped my tastes over the years. This show has given me the chance to do just that, and I hope the casual listener will not be too disappointed that a) the show is full of old records, and b) that a lot of these old records are neither obscure nor difficult to find - they are simply my favourites. There's one of my favourite Peel's Big 45s from 1969, and one of my favourite Educating Elizabeth 7"s from the same era.
The show was a team effort, recorded in the heat of summer at Andrew Morrison's studio in Hamble, with help from several Dandelion Radio stalwarts, in order of appearance: Andy M, Neil Jenkins, Paul Webster and Mark Rosney. Thanks too to Teresa for providing us with a constant supply of victuals, and to JP for red wine and inspiration.

Ste McCabe - January 2010
2010 is here, it's queer, get used to it! In my short and lovely one hour January show I proudly present filthy electro pop from two of the UK's most outrageous duo's - Manchester's Saltylips and the unstoppable Jean Genet.
There's electro pop of the more introspective kind from Fosca, as well as witty punk from some of the best bands in the UK, including Essex's Ten Tigers and Vile Vile Creatures.
There's even a new live version of a classic X-Ray Spex song thrown in, so come on chickens! What are you waiting for?

Yank Sizzler - January 2010
2010! Isn't that crazy? Doesn't it sound like we've entered our own sci-fi film opening? My only remedy is to share a few golden nuggets from Laurel Aitken, Louis Jordan, The Gaylads & The Perils along with the scariest MODERN music from The Woes, Massive Attack,The Kinetiks, The Octopus Project, Reigning Sound, The Mantles & much more. So tune in for a whomping two hours where we both dance and swing fiery sticks at technology.
