Site regular Lux Inferior spotted some old jingles done by the band for Dandelion Radio back in the early 2000s. Others tracked down the set, and The Harbinger of Nothing put them together as a single piece. We’ve put it on YouTube as it seems the most accessible place for people. Thanks all!
Dandelion Radio describes itself as follows: “We could tell you how a bunch of volunteers felt inspired by the legacy of the late and much-missed BBC Radio DJ John Peel to create our own Internet radio station, named after Dandelion Records, the label Peel ran from 1969-1973. We could tell you that we’re bored with automated and formatted radio, and yearn for the days when DJs made it up as they went along, like we do. Or that we want to serve the needs of the people who create and distribute new and interesting music and provide a unique listening experience, with the spirit of Peel running through all we do. We could also tell you about all the strange, challenging, new, old and different music we play. And the exclusive live recordings and sessions we regularly feature. Or about how we are the official new home of John Peel’s legendary Festive Fifty – a broadcasting institution since 1976.
“However, we think our station speaks for itself.”
Cheers Chris. I finally feel as though I’ve contributed something useful!
