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.

No new Mosen Explosion this weekend, so we're dipping into the archives

This weekend, there’ll be no new, live, Mosen Explosion, but I will be back with you for a new show on 10 August.

In case you had a life back on 6 August 2017 and you didn’t hear the show from that day, that’s what we’ll be running in the slot this weekend.

Have a good week, and I’ll see you back on the 10th.

It's a themeless, meandering Mosen Explosion

We’ve had a couple of big shows over the last couple of weeks, with our amazing moon landing special last week and the show about the sport that must not be named the week before that. I’ll have a little to say about that on this week’s Mosen Explosion.

But for the most part, this week’s show is wide open, with a great variety of music and conversation that could take us anywhere.

Bonnie is here with a bulletin containing something of significant significance, and we’ll look back on this day in history.

The Mosen Explosion goes on-location for our Apollo 11 celebration

Sorry to disappoint you, but when I say “on-location”, we’re not quite getting to the moon to host this week’s show. I put in a proposal, but unfortunately it wasn’t approved by our miserly Mushroom FM Budget Director.

Nevertheless, we are indeed heading out of the studio for some of this week’s show, as Bonnie, Heidi and I head to Te Papa, the Museum of New Zealand, to examine some moon rock. We’ll tell you the story behind how New Zealand ended up with it, and Heidi will read a newspaper story from the day of the moon landing from 50 year old newsprint.

Share your moon memories and thoughts with us on this week's special Mosen Explosion

Since we’re seeking special listener contributions, I’m giving plenty of notice of what’s happening on this weekend’s Mosen Explosion.

The next show will air on 20 July US Eastern time, 50 years to the day that humans first set foot on another world. We’ll be playing plenty of songs about the moon and space, and you’re welcome to make a request for anything that fits the theme.

Tension, excitement, and taking on an impossible task? It's The Mosen Explosion

Thanks to everyone for their good wishes following the last minute cancellation of last week’s show. I hope you enjoyed the replay from the archives. Now it’s time to bring you another live, fresh edition.

It's a fab, telephonically enhanced, Mosen Explosion

Yet again, I’m back for another four hours of great music and conversation as we all get together for The Mosen Explosion on Mushroom FM.

If you’ve been listening to the show over the last couple of weeks, you will have heard me make mention of the fact that the provider of our listener line appears to have bitten the dust. And sure enough, ahead of last week’s show, the number stopped working, seemingly never to work again. It has ceased to be. Aw.

This week on The Mosen Explosion, your memories of going online for the first time

I’m very much looking forward to being back with you live on The Mosen Explosion for another week and receiving your audio and written emails, your tweets, your phone calls and your Facebook contributions. Golly, this show is, like, so totally wired!

Yes there was once a time when our computers tended to be stand-alone, isolated things. You could copy data onto a floppy disk or print out a document, but that was about it.
