John Peel Festive 50 2008 on Dandelion Radio - listen now!

Post by Rocker » Fri Dec 05, 2008 13:17

Right! If you've not voted yet - you're too late! And if you didn't vote, then you can't moan that you don't like any of the records in the chart!

After a few days of haggling (and checking that the tracks all had 2008 releases) we now have a chart - and 10 (count 'em!) of the Dandelion Radio DJs will spend the next few days frantically recording their sections.

The 2008 Festive 50 show will premier at midnight on December 24th (ie the first few hours of Xmas day), and will then be in the loop at least once a day right through until the end of January. And what better way to spend the first few hours of Xmas day?

If last year is anything to go by, it is our most popular show of the year, so we will be spending some of our hard-earned cash on upping the number of listener slots - however, if you get an error message, it probably means our streaming bandwidth is full - will probably not happen too often, so just try again & you'll probably get through!

Also, if you voted, there are prizes of books and CDs - each DJ will announce a winner during their section of the chart.

PS I think quite a few people on here voted - there's certainly some good tracks in there!
Cheers!

OK is TONITE!!!

1st play of the 2008 Festive 50 show goes out on Dandelion Radio tonight (Dec 24th) at midnight - it's a four hour show, featuring loads of your favourite popgroups!

The show will be in the stream at least once a day alongside our normal December shows until Dec 31st, and then in amongst our January shows right through 'til the end of Jan.

We have bumped up our bandwidth so hopefully everyone who wants to will be able to listen, if you get an error message, try again a few minutes later.

Our schedules page lists all the times the show is coming round in the loop!

Oh - and there's a special one-off build up show at 11pm tonight, featuring Dandelion favourites and tracks which didn't quite make the 50 - only one chance to hear this one!

Cheers!
Cheers!

It's on a loop until the end of January...so, if you miss it the first time, there's plenty of opportunities to hear it again....

I'll rephrase aorta's question - can you post the top 50 afterwards for those of us who haven't got the attention span to listen to the whole show?

We can't post the tracklisting while the show is still in the stream, as our PRS licence prohibits this. Also it will spoil it for those who haven't yet listened.

The official chart will be up on our website on Feb 1st.

(Of course we can't stop anyone else from putting the chart up in, say, an internet chat forum - but if they did, we'd very much appreciate it if there was a big SPOILER warning in the title of the thread so people who've not listened yet would not have their fun ruined)
Cheers!

Fair enough, totally understand that - I'm sure I'll have the attention span to get through it all anyway. And given a couple of the posts before mine I'll change the title of this thread now. Well done Mark.

Damn it, there's not enough title space to add a spoiler warning.

I hope my blurtings have not ruined too much enjoyment for those who have not listened yet. I haven't mentioned much of it in other threads anyway and some was passed on in other places anyway or in PM's. Excellent list in the true traditions. Some I don't like. Some I do. Some I've not heard before but will now be seeking out.

Hee, aw, well done Pete and the Deirdres for making the Festive 50 - I got a text the other night about it and just checked the list tonight and it's so full of lovely indiepop. Yay!

Just seen that a couple of my posts have been edited to remove details of what was in the chart....fair enough...
I had (wrongly) assumed that everyone would know what was in there...hope I didn't spoil anyone's fun...

No offence or anything - I only edited them because the guy whose show it is asked that we didn't leak too much, so I thought I'd better do a sly bit of editing.

You're seemingly as surprised as I am. There I was hoping that Take That and Jazmine Sullivan were going to be in the higher reaches of the chart :(
