We're Celebrating this week on Come by the Hills!

It's hard to believe that it was one year ago this coming Monday, August 21, that Mushroom FM took a chance on me and my passion for Celtic music and let me start producing this weekly dose of fun and frolic that I call Come by the Hills, the Celtic Music Show! I can't thank Jonathan and the other Fun Guys enough for welcoming me and encouraging me along the way. Also, the show wouldn't be the same without you and all the other listeners who tune in every week and give me suggestions for what to play and who keep me honest. Thanks for a great year and here's to many more!

It's an open forum, on A Cuppa at the Mosen

Bonnie is away at a conference this week, so it's Jonathan flying solo on Mushroom FM’s global call-in show, A Cuppa at the Mosens.

The Zoom room and phone lines will be wide open for us to chat about anything, be it a weighty political matter or something lighter.

Send your requests and memories for the conclusion of Elvis day

For over half a century, millions of people have smooched to “Can’t Help Falling in Love”. They’ve cried to “Are you Lonesome Tonight”. They’ve danced to “Jailhouse Rock”, and they’ve tried to sing “It’s Now or never” in the shower.

Elvis was such a gifted vocalist, recording timeless songs in so many styles, that is music as still as much loved as ever.

I'm taking you for a ride on The Early Years Wednesday morning

On Aug. 16, 1977, Elvis Presley, the king of rock and roll, died at the young age of 42.
Tomorrow (Wednesday) is Elvis Day on Mushroom FM. 24 hours of Elvis memories. For complete details, visit:

Variety is what it's all about tonight on The Early Years

Sunday is a great day for listening to Mushroom FM and I'm proud to be part of the line-up tonight at 6 PM.
Hello, I'm Steve Cutway inviting you to join me for The Early Years. It's a variety of 50s and 60s music this week; including a birthday present for my brother. (How old is he? You'll find out if you listen to the show.) I have a version comparison and a twin spin that I think you'll find interesting. I'll talk about Elvis Day this Wednesday on Mushroom FM and I'll welcome the newest Mushroom FM fun guy and talk about his show.

Locked and loaded. It's The Mosen Explosion. That I can tell you!

The Mosen explosion,
makes such a commotion,
whenever it comes on the air.
It’ll make you feel happy,
when life’s being crappy,
and lift you right out of despair.

So I suggest you,
turn the ‘shroom on at 2,
and phone in, or email, or tweet.
Because some people say,
when it comes to Sunday,
the Explosion just makes it complete.

The Celtic Music Just Keeps on Comin' on Come by the Hills!

Come along and join me this week for another episode of Come by the Hills, the Celtic Music Show on Mushroom FM! I've got all the usual features: "Me Music," "Fiddlin' Around" and "Celtic Covers," plus songs of protest, songs of love and death, and everything in between.

Jimmy Witherspoon part 2 this week on The Juke In The Back

The Juke In The Back” focuses on the “soul that came before rock n’ roll,” the records that inspired Elvis, Buddy Holly, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and countless others.

An Elvis fan? Lock us in. August 16 is Elvis day.

It was 40 years ago on 16 August 1977 that the world was shocked by the death of Elvis Presley, known widely as “the king of rock and roll”. He was just 42.

Just as radio stations the world-over suspended their regular programming back then to play Elvis music, Mushroom FM is suspending its regular schedule on 16 August to bring you 24 hours of Elvis-related programming. Whether you’re a dedicated fan who wants to pay homage on a difficult day, or someone who’s curious about the extent of this incredible figure’s contribution to music, you’ll be glad you joined us.

On A Cuppa at the Mosens, Sara helps us start an occasional series

We’re back for another week of your chitchat on Mushroom FM’s global, international and worldwide talk show, A Cuppa at the Mosens. This week, we’re beginning a series, which we hope to do every month or so for the next few months.

One of the things that really makes Mushroom FM stand out head and shoulders above a lot of other options is the great personalities we have on the team. There’s room for more, of course, and we have an announcement about a new recruit very soon. But we thought it would be great to give you a chance to learn more about the members of our team.
