Mark Whitby is a regular DJ on Dandelion Radio. In 2005, his book 'The Festive Fifty', chronicling the history of John Peel's famous end of year chart, was published. He's tried being in bands but gave up after his surf-punk combo The Beached Whales ended in acrimonious failure in the late nineties, after which he decided to concentrate on listening to and spreading the word about music that was actually worth listening to. After hosting short-lived radio shows such as The A-Z of Punk, The Diamond Mine and Idiot Jukebox, he joined the Dandelion staff in 2006 and has been with them ever since. Among other things, recent obsessions include the Hungarian punk scene, short-lived and much-missed Isle of Man band The Chasms, Fuck Buttons and Jeffrey Lewis.

LISTEN! Great new song from The Shed Project ‘sounds like 1988 Roses and pre cocaine Oasis!”

The Shed Project are from Bolton and are quietly honing down their classic NW style. It may not be highly fashionable at the moment but their melodic edge and belief in the redemptive power in the guitar is proof that a bunch of middle aged geezers with graft and talent can find the magic in any style of music.
