Dandelion Radio are celebrating the 10th Anniversary of Shifty Disco with a retrospective look at the label’s colourful history, a trawl through their diverse and prolific back catalogue, and an interview with label boss Dave Newton. There’s a chance to win a load of shiny new Shifty Disco releases and celebrations are rounded off with live sets from Shifty bands, The Race, Seagull Strange, My Device and Paperlung. The show starts on Jan 27th & repeats through February. We also have an exclusive four track session from Autons.

Pimpernel Jones:
Pompey DJ and rising star Pimpernel Jones plays the Wedgewood Rooms on Saturday 10th February with Radio One/Talkin’ Loud’s Gilles Peterson. So far I’ve only heard the chilled out mixes that Chris has been kind enough to point me to but judging from that and the favourable comments he’s been receiving lately, it should be a good night. Definately a name to watch!

| Taster Two compilation on the Cookshop Label.

There are bound to be things I’ve forgotten or simply missed so contact me if you want a mention.

Ivor Cutler Radio & TV Tribute Dates & Times

I don’t think John would mind at all that we are giving over such space to Ivor at the moment. A quintessential Peel artist if there ever was one.

BBC Radio 3
Andy Kershaw
Sunday 12th March 2006
22:15-00:00

“In tribute to the late Ivor Cutler, Andy repeats a classic session from February 1979, together with tracks from Ali Farka Toure, who also died this week.”

BBC Four Television
Ivor Cutler: Looking for Truth With a Pin
Friday 24th March 2006
21:00 – 22:00

“A celebration of the man Billy Connolly described as “the best kept secret in Britain”, despite five decades of work in radio, television, records and books.

Cutler is probably best known for his starring role in the Beatles’ film, Magical Mystery Tour. But behind the name is the story of a man with 20 sessions for John Peel at Radio One to his name, signings to all major record labels, and who once had his own portrait in the National Portrait Gallery under Great British Poets.”

With thanks to yahoo group: ivor-list for bringing these dates to my attention.

“We wanted to make a series about British eccentrics but ended up making one programme about Ivor Cutler.” Read about the making of this documentary here.
