Dandelion Radio Festive 50…..2016

Dandelion Radio has long continued to hold the torch and preserve the spirit of the late Mr Peel, since his death they have taken on the mantle of being the voice from beneath the record counter whilst serving as an outlet for those artists and bands swimming against the tide of commercialism. Those long time listeners familiar with Mr Peel will no doubt be all too aware of the annual Festive 50 soirees, the rules where simply, vote your favourite tracks of the year and the great man would gather them all together, meticulously go through said bundle awarding points in terms of the listeners choice of preference, scribble these in a ledger and attempt to draw up a chart listing the top 50 – hence Festive 50. Some years it was a non-event – remember the great phantom festive 50, other times tradition gave way to predictability – see the all-time Festive 50 as was until the early 80’s, then there were the Smiths years so on and so forth. Well getting back to base, Dandelion Radio have kept the tradition going, each year collating a chart from listener votes and then broadcasting said selections over several transmissions. This years has just been published and with the addition of personal choices from the Dandelion DJ’s a dinky little 5 hour mix cloud set has been knitted….among the list, cuts from the Bordellos, let’s eat grandma, the fall, the Weddoes and the aforementioned Diane Marie Kloba with a certain Mr Bowie commanding the top 2 spots……anyway its here – fill yer boots…..
