The exploding revolution continues. Enjoy it in full and unabridged only right here

Revolutions and explosions often go together you know!

When life changed in amazing ways for me with my new job, I was confronted by three seemingly irreconcilable truths. The first truth is that if I thought I had been leading a busy life before, I ain’t seen nothin’ yet.

The second truth was that the Mosen Explosion had been going for so long that even though more people heard my podcasts, I couldn’t give it up, it was purely a heart over head, sentimental thing. I love the atmosphere we’ve all created together and it’s a great escape.

And now for something completely different. Monty Python turns 50 on The Mosen Explosion

50 years ago, on 5 October 1969, a crazy, ground-breaking show called Monty Python’s Flying Circus aired on BBC television for the first time. No one quite knew what to expect and the cast wondered if it was going to be too weird for the public. Of course, the rest is history. It’s some of the best-loved comedy of all time.

SO we don’t need much of an excuse to dust off the old Monty Python. If you have a favourite Monty Python sketch of song, feel free to get in touch and request it.

Paying tribute to Julia Aguilar, and the Beatles Abbey Road remix on this week's Mosen Explosion

With a very heavy heart, I begin by noting that last Sunday, Julia Aguilar, who at one time was my wife Julia Mosen, died after a short illness. For 3.5 years, she hosted several popular radio shows here on Mushroom FM. We’ll take some time to remember Julia in her own words and music.

This week on The Mosen Explosion, what's the best book you've ever read and why?

We’re baaaaaack! Oh yes we are! We’ve survived another week of changing climates, political madness, iOS bugs and in some cases, even soup! Oh my word anything, anything but the soup! But we’ve made it to another Mosen Explosion, live at 2 PM Eastern, 7 PM UK, 6 AM in New Zealand.

We will of course be finding out how you’re getting on with iOS 13, and looking ahead to Amazon’s big announcements in the coming week.

On The Mosen Explosion, superstitions, Apple event recap, and did you order anything? Did I order anything?

We are back yet again for another fun four hours of music and conversation on The Mosen Explosion.

This week, we’re going to talk about superstitions. There is a remarkable number of these, things that apparently bring you bad luck if you do them. I’ll tell you the story that got me thinking about this topic, and I look forward to hearing things that you don’t do because they bring you bad luck, or superstitions you’ve learned about from others.

On The Mosen Explosion, Apple event anticipation, and childhood sayings that annoy or inspire

Once again, tiny techy tots, with their iOS all aglow, will find it hard to sleep. It’s nearly Apple event time, and there may be a few gadgets beyond the expected. I’ll take a look at what might be coming, and I’d love to hear from you about what you’re hoping for.

This week on The Mosen Explosion, what are the news stories you'll never forget?

We’re back live on Mushroom FM this Saturday at 2 Pm Eastern, 7 PM UK time, that’s bright and early on Sunday morning in New Zealand for another Mosen Explosion.

And as you may have heard, we now slice and dice the show to make up the new Mosen At Large Podcast, available in a podcast app near you! It’s amazing what you blind people can do nowadays eh?

It’s Father’s Day here in New Zealand, and I’m sure for those who travel, it must get very confussling with Father’s Day happening at different times all around the world.

This week on The Mosen Explosion, what do Windows 95 and living next door to Alice have in common?

Ah yesh, it sheemsh like only yeshterday. There were big countdowns, events across the world at midnight, all for the launch of Microsoft’s Windows 95. Of course, nowadays, you get a new version of Windows every six months and you wait for it to turn up one day and hope you still have your documents.

On this week's Mosen Explosion, parties and milestones and jingles, oh my!

What do you do when you reach a big, humungonormous, mega milestone birthday, eh? What do you do? Well if you’re Bonnie Mosen, which you’re not of course because otherwise you’d be here living with me, you would have a kids’ party with a custom-designed Game of Thrones cake!

We're back live on this week's Mosen Explosion, and the anticipation is building

If four hours of some of the best music ever made coupled with some friendly and engaging conversation sounds like your thing, then you’ll be pleased to know that I’m back live this week with another edition of The Mosen Explosion.

We’ll be taking just a little time during the show to pay tribute to a wonderful woman for whom I am incredibly grateful, Bonnie’s Mum, who died last week.
