1. Feb. 2009, 19:13 von DandelionRadioWith the Festive 50 now over, we get back to regular shows - plus a new DJ, Katherine Godfrey.
Andy's 2-hour February show offers much more than the sum of its parts. small crew are exclusive session guests, providing four excellent new tracks. Brand new music comes from The Race, Y Diwygiad, James Yuill, Joy formidable and Shortwave Fade as well as a storming new remix of a Bomb the Bass classic. There's striking sounds from Andy's unsigned new find Raw Milk, and further unsigned tracks from Galchen, The War Crimes and others. Add Scott's Funky Five Minutes and Teresa's Tasty Tips into the equation, and there really is no reason not to factor the show into your leisure time calculations this February!
Jeff croaks his way through his first show of 2009 with thankfully enough brilliant tunes to distract you, dear listener, from the fact he totally lost his voice, to tonsillitis, the day after he recorded this show.

You can't complain too much about it when you sit down by the computer with a very good cup of espresso and an even better piece of chocolate, listening to music and thinking about the concept of genre.
Right now, please listen to:
