The 2008 Festive Fifty – Vote Now!
John Peel’s famous end-of-year poll continues again on Dandelion Radio

Play your part in making musical history, by taking part in this year’s Festive Fifty! Each entry gets a chance to win CDs and copies of Mark Whitby’s book ‘The Festive Fifty’, with one winner also receving a signed copy of Ken Garner’s book ‘The Peel Sessions: A Story of Teenage Dreams and One Man’s Love of New Music’.

Vote for your three favourite tracks from the past year, in order of preference. In theory they could be anything, but tracks played on Dandelion Radio (including session tracks and live recordings) or on BBC Radio 1’s special interest shows are what you should have in mind. Visit our tracklists pages to see what DJs have played this year.

Voting ends at 23:59 on 30th November. A show featuring all the results and competition winners broadcasts from Christmas Day until the end of January.

Dandelion Radio Festive Fifty 2008

Did anyone get a clean recording of last year’s show? I have most of it but noticed too late to re-download, that part of the recording was fucked. Hope I’m not blinding anyone with science there. Otherwise I would have shared it. I forget which part exactly although It might have been Andrew Morrison’s section. It’s not too late to patch it together though if there are any willing contributors.

Should have added this the other day actual.
The Superfine Dandelion – Crazy Town (Move On Little Children) From 196? – anyone?

Peace children. Love and peace.
