On my show this month:
I have appeared from under the rock from where I've been hiding for the last 2 and a bit years. Sadly it was hearing the news of Steven Smith's (of the bands Scul Hazzards, If So Why and Leaching) untimely passing got me back in the Dandelion Radio saddle.
I came across Steven when I was promoting shows in London under the 'Dead Billy' moniker as I put on his then recently relocated band (from Australia) in Kilburn in London in 2009 or 2010. They were brilliant. We kept tabs on each other on Facebook thereafter (as is the modern way) and it was via Facebook I learnt that Steven had died, suddenly in September.
So the show was cobbled together in a way of tribute with songs from his bands Scul Hazzards, If So Why and Leaching. A couple of tunes from artists that he produced or engineered their recordings, Fire By The River and Slow Down.
And I did find room for 3 songs from other acts - so that's tunes from former Odd Box alumni David Lance Callahan, Dragon Welding (both solo projects from members of The Wolfhounds) and a cracking new song from the forthcoming third LP from The Humms.
Rest easy, Steven.

Biography:

Before taking up the challenge of being a Dandelion DJ I was an avid fan of the station and that hasn't changed over the past few years it's been wonderful to become part of the Dandelion family. I grew up listening to John Peel in the 80s and 90s and I hope that the music I play can be even a smidgen as interesting as his shows used to be. I have DJ'd for Fortuna POP, the Indietracks festival and countless other indiepop nights in the past - although my musical taste stretch further and wider than the indiepop sound. Having run Odd Box Records for over 10 years the label is now on a go slow at the moment and I am therefore increasingly finding my passion for music is now being channelled in to putting together my Dandelion radio shows.
'Work' these days is my own Craft Beer and Record shop based in Cardiff. The shop is called Pop'n'Hops. Please do pop in if you are ever in the Cardiff area.
