The Smelly Flowerpot Enters The Kennel

To mark the release of the 4th volume of Cambridge Calling the curator of the collection, Dave Hammond, has put together a very special Smelly Flowerpot Radio show for German Shepherd Podcast listeners. Dave has opted for 20 tracks he has played and loved on his fortnightly show on Cambridge 105, a kind of selection of greatest hits that never were but should have been.

Music from the following artists is featured:

Revolutionary Army of the Infant Jesus, Ten Million Aliens, The Seven Twenty, Moscow Circus, Dos Floris, Ruth Theodore, Goddammit Jeremiah, Aethertrip. KP2/Loop Aznavour,
The Granite Shore, Trick Bird, Plantman, Hanterhir, West Coast Sick Line, Elizabete  Balcus, Vika Souto, Pearls Cab Ride, Tom Skelly, Jackie Leven and The Distractions

You can listen to Dave every other Monday between 9pm -11pm on Cambridge 105 Radio. Dave has been a steadfast supporter of the label since its outset and has interviewed many of our artists on his show as well as introducing us to the Cambridge bands that are on German Shepherd.
