The Festive Fifty 2006 – VOTE NOW!

The Dandy Fifty?
Dandelion Radio to be new home of the Festive Fifty.

Here’s what the guys from Dandelion Radio have to say. “Radio 1 has decided, for a variety of good reasons, to not run a Festive Fifty for 2006. However, Dandelion Radio is proud to announce that John Peel’s old programme team has asked us if we would take up the baton of hosting this annual yuletide music fest The Festive Fifty.”

The setup is the same as usual, meaning you vote for your three favourite tracks from 2006. “In theory they could be anything, but tracks that you have heard on Dandelion Radio or on BBC Radio 1 OneMusic shows are what we expect will be at the front of your mind”, they explain. “We will be closing the voting before Christmas and then putting the show together to play in January (or maybe even sooner if we can find all of the tracks quickly).”

Well, I hope everyone supports Dandelion Radio with this, so pass on the message, tune in, and get voting in the 2006 Festive Fifty, (Or the Dandy Fifty as I’ve amusingly taken to name it!), by using the form located here:

Vote now for the The Festive Fifty 2006.

And as soon as I’m informed of the actual broadcast date we can all huddle around a roaring internet with festive cheer and countdown together!

    The Dandelion Radio Festive 50 2006 starting playing as we moved into 2007.
    We compiled it into a 5-hour show. It is part of our repeating schedule our January. So – with 11 hours of other shows around it .. it means that it get played in full once every 16 hours.
    If that is a bit hard to work out then nip over to http://www.dandelionradio.com/pages/schedule.html and it will be a lot clearer!
