Tracklistings at http://www.dandelionradio.com/tracklists/2008-01/main.htm#rocker. Starting the year with a bang! This month's three-hour show is as usual packed with new tracks from the likes of Skylark; Easy Star Allstars; The Cubical; Soda Fountain Rag; Skream; The Manhattan Love Suicides; Burial; Dan Le Sac vs Scroobius Pip; Vancougar; Small Crew; Paul Hawkins & Thee Awkward Silences; Cranium Pie; and Afternoon Naps. There's a classic track from Ike Turner, who sadly died last month, plus the 1960s meets the 1790s when Gerard Langley of The Blue Aeroplanes reads William Blake over David Axelrod, from the latest CD in the "Lit" series. There's also the second half of The Wedding Present set recorded live last October on their George Best 20th anniversary tour. In addition to little known acts, here is this month's little known fact: The fear of the number 666 is known as hexakosioihexekontahexaphobia.
