Andy's July show features 3 hours of great new music, including The Horn the Hunt, Epic45, Low, Bill Wells & Aidan Moffat, Alpines, Harrys gym, Atari Teenage Riot, Snowman, PJ Harvey and Stay+ (formerly known as Christian Aids). There's a smattering of older tunes including a very rare New Order 7" single, a classic live session track from The Race and one of The Fall's best ever tunes. Scott picks a Funky Five Minutes and there's even a brief guest appearance from Andy's dad Barry.
Jeff continues to celebrate Dandelion Radio’s five years of broadcasting with a three hour July show and some of his favourite acts that he has featured over the years; Gaggle, Clutter, wolfram wire, The Red Trees, Superman Revenge Squad and Jujuman & the Program.
However July is not all about wallowing in the past as there are some absolute blinding new releases by Boris, Mountaineer, Joker, Seedhill Bruiser, Art Department, CLOUT!, Little Roy and Mountains.
17 Jun 2011, 09:15 by UnwashedJust three of the tracks on Dandelion Radio's FREE fifth anniversary compilation 'Five Years' at http://unwashedterritories.bandcamp.com:
JD Meatyard – Olive Tree
With Levellers 5 and Calvin Party John Donaldson recorded eight sessions for the John Peel show. The consistently brilliant Calvin Party, who also featured in two festive fifties, later appeared in session in the Mark Whitby show of October 2009 as part of Dandelion’s ‘Peel Legends’ month.
Now based in Amsterdam and recording as JD Meatyard, John has an album to be released on Probe Plus this summer and from it, ‘Olive Tree’ holds up an unnerving mirror to the listener in its raw presentation of attitudes to the persecution of Palestinians.
Donaldson continues to be a lyricist of gently stated but devastating insight and a performer who combines a fine treatment of musical tradition with an uncompromising individualism. The words ‘Peel legend’ have never seemed more fitting.

Andy has two shows in May’s schedule. In his 2-hour regular show, he proudly presents the 'Lord Numb Love-In' in his 2-hour May show, with three sessions for the price of two (sort of) including two exclusively-recorded tunes each from Lord Numb, his close associate Spidersleg, and The Reject Club - the name under which both Spidersleg and Lord Numb work together. There's loads of other great music including Harry's Gym, Niki & the Dove, Laura Cantrell, Pete Miles, Trembling Blue Stars, PJ Harvey, Alpines, Team Ghost, Samuraj Cities and Morrissey, plus a fine selection of new and unsigned bands. A classic rave anthem appears as Andy's Old Chestnut; Teresa introduces a Tasty Tip; Scott's supplies a Funky Five Minutes; and there's another exciting competition to win a bumper bundle of CDs!
His second show in May is Andy’s Archives, featuring music released ten or more years ago, selected at random from his comprehensive record collection. …

Andy introduces two shows during April's schedule. His regular 3-hour show features a brand new session from progressive trance act Cygnus X-1 - his second for the show. There's exciting new (and some old) music from Sleigh Bells, Harrys gym, Napoleon IIIrd, Red Cosmos, Dave.i.d, Trembling Blue Stars, The Horn the Hunt, Sabres of Paradise, Swans and Team Ghost, to name just a handful. Teresa introduces a Tasty Tip, Scott selects a Funky Five Minutes, and there's another competition to win a bumper bundle of CDs.Elsewhere in the schedule, Andy's Archives is back, with an hour of top tunes from ten or more years ago, randomly picked from Andy's record collection. Classic tracks come from Curve, 808 State, Aphex Twin and many more!
Greg Healey: Five, four, two. No, not a defensively minded line up selected to nullify the attacking fluency of Arsenal, but rather this month's show from Greg Healey, which features five sessions over four hours divided into two, two hours shows. …
