Jeff Grainger - October 2012
Not even a ill judged half-time bag of chilli nuts could scupper Jeff's return to Dandelion Radio after a five month absence. Where he finally gets round to treating us to two long awaited sessions; Peopling's ace debut and Stranger Son's blistering second.
Elsewhere in October's two hour spectacular, dear old friends mingle nicely with some new found fave's. We'll hear tracks by Alisia Casper, Savages, Koudede, Evian Christ,Wolfram Wire, Moon Duo, Bodies Of Water, Blawan and The Pains of Being Pure at Heart. With a world exclusve Drink and Drive tune and an obscure The Mamas & The Papas (oh yes) song.
It verges, quite literally, on the 'not to be missed'.

Marcelle - October 2012
'The vinyl train!'
A 100 percent vinyl show this month, with Marcelle bringing back new wax from various European cities where she is a resident DJ. Konono Nº1, Vladislav Delay, Bad News, A Made Up Sound, Indigo, Percussions, Joe, LV & Mundance, Pearson Sound, Perc, Bedouin Jerry Can Band and Rrose are in the pile of new records Marcelle plays.
Some creative associative thinking made Marcelle play a 1978 punk classic and a Wire classic is responsible for the name of a new Austrian 'post punk style' band, Dot Dash. Wax Across The Water comes from Mamoud Ghania And His Son Abdellah and the Look Back Bore artists are Jah Wobble and Animal, Joe Crow and Nightingales. Highlight of the show is undoubtely the 990 'Henry Oakley', at work on the K.W.V.R. 'Joem' with a D.V.R. passenger train at York, Layerthorpe. On vinyl !

Mark Cunliffe - October 2012
As I gear up for Halloween I'm not going to make the same mistake as last year when I tried to go as a gothic Bungle from Rainbow. My mascara wouldn't sit right on the fur and looking like an inebriated brown panda was scaring no one except, possibly, Lin Bing of Chiang Mai Zoo....

What's in store on my show then? Gappy Ranks is using a rolling pin on some marjoram which Dermy D has heard all before. Mender is doing the Birdie Dance at Stonehenge which has caused Alex Young to go right down hill. Liminanas are touting for an army which Walton is telling them to simmer down about. Joob has produced something very unsavoury but BiggieDutch thinks it's all right. There are not one but TWO sessions this month, from the fantastic bass/future garage producer Cloaka and also from the Nottingham spoken word collective Mouthy Poets. All brought to you with no Bungling....well, no more than normal.....

Mark Whitby - October 2012
It's eight years since the untimely passing of John Peel, and many of the artists championed by him are still going strong, as evidenced in this show by new tracks from Deerhoof, Beau, Tender Trap and The Orb with Lee 'Scratch' Perry.
Our 'Peel Back...' feature is specially extended this month to feature session tracks from the Peel shows of ten, twenty and thirty years ago plus a much-loved track from The Woodentops.
Session guests The Pocket Gods are on predictably fine form and they rub shoulders with cracking new releases from, among others, Harry Cloud, Bits Of Shit and Tiny Swimmers, advance previews of new releases from Snailhead, Dead Man's Tree and The Chasms and a couple of wonderful albums I picked up from performers at this year's Green Man Festival, from Glis Glis and Stealing Sheep.
There's another release from Hungarian favourites Opus Null, Croatians Crawander, another from the much-loved Flies On You and something from an album that was on my list of the year's best releases before it even reached me, courtesy of the wonderful Tender Trap. All this and three tracks from the Michigan Meltdown compilation of psychedelic goodies, not an especially new release but one that only just reached me and couldn't be ignored.

Paul Ackroyd - October 2012
20-minute special for Kamikaze on Dandelion Radio this month, in that all the tracks are somewhere in the region of 20 minutes long. Tune in for new bits from Berlin's excellent Pan Recordings from Eli Keszler and Aaron Dilloway & Jason Lescalleet; a synth party with Keith Fullerton Whitman; an ace but bleak collaboration between Charlemagne Palestine & Janek Schaefer; a minimal tribal piece from This Heat; some classical Indian warbling from Pandit Pran Nath; and a stompin' piece of street dance from Dominica and Haiti.
In Wax Across The Water this month, a very special record indeed - a third album of triple-deck compositions from our very own DJ Marcelle/Another Nice Mess, as she Meets Further Soulmates At Faust Studio Deejay Laboratory.
All in all a pretty splendid bunch of tunes..

Pete Jackson - October 2012
The great Lord Numb provides a Halloween special session this month, with five spooky new tunes to get you through the witching hour. Darkness casts its ebony cloak across a good deal of the music this month, with tunes from d.e.a.d., Blanck Mass and Cheval Sombre, among others, so its a good job that we also have the second half of an exclusive mix from The Time And Space Machine to bring a little sunshine. Elsewhere, there's great new sounds from The Chasms, Blue Giant Zeta Puppies, Toy, Goat, Deerhoof and Sun Araw, and golden sounds from three of the acts playing at this month's Manchester Un-Peeled all-dayer to celebrate John Peel Day.

Rocker - October 2012
A three-hour show packed with new music, including new tracks from Our Arthur; Drop Out Venus; The Whatevers; Cloudier Skies; The Drain On The Balcony; Allo Darlin'; Agent Ribbons; The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart; Lisa Bouvier; Amanda Palmer & The Grand Theft Orchestra; Bernard Robinson.
The featured album this month is the "Raving Pop Blast!" compilation, on A Work Of Heart Records, which features current bands covering songs by seminal 80s indiepoppers The Groove Farm - Listen out for The Fireworks; One Happy Island; The Wendy Darlings; The Monorals and Liechtenstein.
There's electronica from Mononoid; Flying Lotus; Microtrauma; Synth Sense; and District. There's an amazing gospel / house crossover from Candi Staton, and alt US band The Tall Firs go electro to create an amazing tribute to Emeralds' classic "Genetic".
There's a tribute section to the much missed Poly Styrene, and tracks from several eagerly awaited new albums, including Dinosaur Jr; Adrian Sherwood; and a preview of Dandelion Radio favourites The Chasms' forthcoming fourth album.
This month's Peel's Big 45 is a "list record" from 1967 whilst this month's Educating Elizabeth 7" is a midpaced Northern Soul floorfiller from 1969.
As well as little known acts, here's a little known fact: Although best known for 1976's "Young Hearts Run Free", Candi Staton has been making records from the 1950s to the 2010s, from Gospel to Soul to Disco to House.

Sean Hocking - October 2012
After a summer sojourn in Portland Oregon I'm back in Hong Kong with all the newest tracks from the region.
First up Shanghai experimental noise duo Pairs are not far off releasing their 2nd album; "If This Cockroach Doesn't Die, I Will" a double vinyl LP recalling the days of Hüsker Dü's Zen Arcade but sounding more like an early White Stripes meets Royal Trux. The album contains 17 songs about being young and trying to live in China's most (post) modern city, Shanghai. We start the show with a remix of the band's live pleaser, Permanent Resident remixed by french based Shanghai producers, The Horses. Later on in the show we also feature two more tracks from the album.
Talking of new albums ... HK Garden is more than excited to see that Melbourne act No Zu have released their debut album "life" and what we've heard so far certainly lives up to expectation.
And we've also come across a new Cambodian duo ... Christopher Minko & Sophea Chamroeun. A simple voice and guitar duo that sing in both Khmer & English. Hope you enjoy the Tom Waits like "Mango Madness Monsoon Madness"
Also in the show two great tracks culled from the CD re-issue of The Saints lost classic 3rd album, Prehistoric Sounds, a hip hop track from Tahiti, Portland (OR) based singer songwriter Holcombe Waller and lots more.
