Did you know that The Mosen Explosion replays on Mushroom FM? Hearing it live is the best experience because you can interact with other listeners and have input into the show. But if that’s not possible, you can hear it every Tuesday morning between 5 and 9 AM Eastern US time, that’s 10 AM in the UK. It’s also Monday night at 9 PM in Eastern Australia, which is a jolly good time.

This week on The Mosen Explosion, I’ll be playing a few selected tracks from the album, along with Sir Paul discussing the inspiration behind them.

The parable of the Mosen Towers Wonder PC

Are you sitting comfortably? Then I’ll begin.

Once upon a time, in the early days of The Mosen Explosion, we hosted the show from desktop computers. In the very early days, it literally was desktop computers, plural. One to stream with, another to do all the cool broadcasting trickery with.

Time went by, like it always does, and after a while, laptop computers became more powerful. Since mid-2009, the show has come to you thanks to the power of laptop computers. Just run into the studio, dock the laptop, and if it wasn’t working correctly, say “holy soup! What’s up, dock”.
