Andrew Morrison - January 2016
Andy's two-hour January show looks back over his favourite tunes from the last year, many of which he didn't manage to play you during the last twelve months. He'll also be counting down his own personal top ten tracks of 2015. Selections featured in the show include Swim Deep, Dave Gahan & Soulsavers, New Order, Azure Blue, Black Honey, Victories At Sea, GAPS, Freddie Dickson and Telegram.

Also be sure to listen to the results of the official 2015 Festive Fifty, plus Dandelion Radio's own 2015 Review show - both of which Andy co-presents with other DJs - broadcasting daily until the end of January.

Jeff Grainger - January 2016
Jeff kicks of the year with the first of 12 installments to mark two very prestigious landmarks as 2016 will be Dandelion Radio's 10th year of broadcasting plus if that wasn't hard enough to believe Jeff will be 50 in April!!!
So as a personal tribute we get to hear artists from Jeff own back catalogue (The Oldham Tinkers & The Fall) as well as some of his favourite tracks broadcast on his show (Shookz & J Hughes) throughout the years. Each show will also feature a classic session, first off its Stink Taps.

Lee Adcock - January 2016
Congratulations! If you're reading this synopsis, that means you survived the festivus onslaught of December. As we sweep away the confetti, and box up the menorahs, and haul off the trees, let's try to clammer into 2016.
Music-wise, I always crawl up like a slug; thus, this month's episode shall be a truncated one, with an hour lopped off the usual frenzy, and several tracks holding the vanguard from last year.
I'm seeing Killing Joke later in January, so there's a good excuse to invite them over; Bitchratch will attempt to sabotage the decks; jennylee and Disparition will square off for a black magic showdown in the kitchen.
We paid lots of money for FKA Twigs and M.I.A to bedazzle us, so pay attention, you mo-fos. In the upcoming category, scuzzy indie kids Halfsour will storm the gallery, spewing the bubbly in everyone's faces, while Animal Daydream will sigh at their labelmates and sit quietly in the corner sharing a peace pipe.
Also, watch out for an EDM remix of a familiar Mario tune, a lost foggy epic from Normil Hawaiians, and a song that should soothe nations from the lovely Bamboo. And, you know, other things.

Mark Cunliffe - January 2016
No session this month, but don't despair! There's new stuff from Sleeparchive and Blue Daisy, two who haven't featured for a little while.
There's a large slab of Bhangra to revel over and the post punk of Shopping gets a run out. Alko gives us some immense techno and there's the usual dose of baile funk.
Travelling Wave get in on the act while JNDANZ is back for more. There's a new project from Spoek Mathambo called Batuk and there's tunes from two fav's Lady Chann and This Is The Kit.
In all 47 tracks to get your ears around.

Mark Whitby - January 2016
A stunning exclusive session jam from Twice Dead provides a glorious centrepiece for a January show that, as usual, attempts to showcase many of the best releases coming our way early in the new year, including tracks from new albums by Hinds, Savages and Emma Pollock as well as a new collection from Dressy Bessy that comes our way after a gap of more than seven years.
Also featured is the much-anticipated Yorkston/Thorne/Khan collaboration, with a rendition of an old Ivor Cutler tune, one of several cover versions in a show that also sees Guruzsmas taking on Dick Dale, Tape Waves trying their hand at a vintage New Order tune and Tortoise covering, er, David Essex. Meanwhile, our now customary featured compilation comes in the form of three cuts from Bristol Archive's excellent 'Bristol Roots Explosion' album, to be released in February.
Lee Negin and Bernays Propaganda serve up new singles ahead of albums to come in the near future, while nostalgia, while very firmly restrained, is nonetheless in evidence in a couple of the better tracks from the forthcoming Creation shoegaze box set, while, in the month of our festive fifty broadcast, we play three tunes from the chart of 1995, regarded as one of the best ever and a rare example of a festive fifty that carried John Peel's vociferous seal of approval.

Pete Jackson - January 2016
One hour of tunes to start 2016, with brand new sounds from The Manhattan Love Suicides and Justus Proffit alongside some slightly more vintage gems from 70s Senegal and 90s Stoke.
There's the session track of 2015 from the awesome Vert:x and a Peel session track to mark the passing of an equally awesome voice from the 1980s.

Rocker - January 2016
A three hour show to start the year. There's loads of new music, including new tracks from Cat Smell; Flowers; Burnt Palms; Pete Astor; Jonathan Richman; Kyle D Evans; Design; Daddy Issues; Penetration; Wreckless Eric; Three Hour Tour; Stutter Steps; Transistors; Wet Nurse; Earth Girls and Jessica And The Fletchers.
There's electronica from Euripides, Yotto; Fhloston Paradigm and a massive Carl Craig remix of The Chemical Brothers. Where DO they get those names?
This month's Peel's Big 45 is a 7" from 1971, one of the earliest African records to get played on The John Peel Show, while this month's Educating Elizabeth record is a 1966 soul classic from a Jamaican artist ...
As well as little known acts, here's a little known fact: The original Euripides was a Greek playright who lived in the fifth century BC. He wrote many great tragedies, and is famous for the lines 'Those whom gods destroy they first make mad'; and 'One loyal friend is worth ten thousand relatives'.

Sean Hocking - January 2016
Welcome back to the the world of Ring of Fire and we thought we'd start 2016 with 3 solid hours of music.
Lots of great new music from Australia. With new Perth band Verge Collection who've taken over my iPod playlist in the last month. Can't get enough of them and new singer song writer Peter Bibby from Melbourne seems to have a hold on me too.
Is something stirring in Scotland? Two great new acts I've come across are the Psychic Soviets and Breakfast Muff.
On the oldie side we've got my ear worm of the last few months Heinz's Just Like Eddie as well as tracks from The Triffids and the The KLF + Martin Sheen. Can't start the year without the KLF!
There are lots more but have a listen for yourself to find out more.
