When you hear the dying strains of Van Halen's Happy Trails signalling the end of The Mosen Explosion for another week, don't touch your PC, your mobile device or your internet radio and join me in The Early Years on Mushroom FM, the home of the fun guys.
Hello, I'm Steve Cutway. Sir Paul McCartney's 75th birthday isn't the only celebration today. It's Father's Day in North America and I'm honouring them with songs from the 50s and 60s about dads, daddies and papas.

Lorde is back, and so am I, back in the shed.

After being missing in action last week due to a throat infection, I’m back at the top of the hour, which isn’t that far away!
Four hours of the usual mayhem awaits you, and plenty of time for requests as well.
Did I say Lorde is back?
Yes, yes I did!
Her new album was released on Friday, so we will be featuring it this week.

The Mosen Explosion celebrates Sir Paul McCartney's 75th

Sir James Paul McCartney was born in Liverpool on 18 June 1942, so this week on The Mosen Explosion, all the music we play will have a Paul McCartney connection. We’ll hear music from him as a solo artist, songs he’s written that were recorded by others, songs he has produced, songs he did with Wings, and of course, plenty of Beatles.

SnowWhiteFM takes to the air tonight, for yet another amusing and entertaining evening of great music of the 60's and 70's, sprinkled in among the unpredictable antics of the Snowman. And tonight, Steve from Ohio drops in to add his own inimitable bit of color. Will talk radio, about Wolfman Jack, and we'll also sit back, scratch our collective heads, and wonder what the heck to say. And that, my friend, is when the unexpected happens.
All that, plus we'll have coffee with Ed, check out today in history, have a visit from the Chicken man

It's Midsummer this Week on Come by the Hills!

As my Apple Watch informs me, the days are getting longer and longer, and this coming week will be the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. This day has traditionally been called Midsummer's Day and has been a time of dancing, bonfires and general merry-making to honour the high-point of the growing season. We're going to celebrate this on Come by the Hills this week with a few songs about summer for your enjoyment. We'll have a summer-themed "Celtic Cover," another one of my "simple singles" in our feature called "Me Music," and a whole lot more.

The Royals (Early Midnighters) 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.

It's Almost Time for Only the 80s!

Hello Listeners

I am so sorry I couldn’t be with you last week but Thanks so much to Jonathan Mosen who ensured you all got your 80s fix!

I will stick to the play list that I had prepared for last week and nothing else has changed! This is what is coming up in the show:

On A Cuppa at the Mosens, Blind Like Me. Is it right to blindfold the sighted?

This week on A Cuppa at the Mosens, we’d like to know what you think of blindfolding the sighted, or even the visually impaired.

Can blindfolding be a useful educational tool, heightening the empathy sighted people have for the challenges we face? Or, when suddenly deprived of a sense on which sighted people are so dependent, does blindfolding result in creating distorted pictures of what our daily lives are like.

The best music variety from the 50s and 60s tonight on The Early Years!

When you hear the dying strains of Van Halen's Happy Trails signalling the end of The Mosen Explosion for another week, don't touch your PC, your mobile device or your internet radio and join me in The Early Years on Mushroom FM, the home of the fun guys.
Hello, I'm Steve Cutway. Variety is what The Early Years is all about as I present the best music from the 50s and 60s, not from just the rock era that is generally accepted to have started in 1955, but also from 1951 until then. It's music and memories to keep you entertained including a number of version comparisons.

Celtic Music is Back for Another Week on Come by the Hills!

Before I tell you about this week's show, I want to thank everyone who wrote or tweeted in about the Stan Rogers show I did last week. I heard some lovely stories about the man whom I was never able to see perform which only reinforced my high opinion of his music and his legacy for Canada and humanity in general. I managed to impress some pretty knowledgeable folkies with my Stan picks. That's a pretty tall order as I myself should know. It's hard to be a folky sometimes, because so many radio stations stick to a few well-known songs from any particular artist.
