Our Christmas Cast-offs show plays songs that didn't get enough votes to make the top 100

Last Sunday, we played the top 100 holiday songs as voted for by the Mushroom Crowd. But listeners voted for 312 songs in total.

As has become our tradition over the last few years, join me, Jonathan Mosen, as we play four hours of Christmas cast-offs, a few of the 212 songs that people voted for, but not in large enough numbers to make the main chart.

It first airs in the Mosen Explosion replay slot, Tuesday at 5 AM Eastern time, 10 AM in the UK. If that’s stupid o’clock for you, we’ll play it again on Wednesday afternoon between 4 and 8 PM Eastern time.

Come one, come all, to our 2018 holiday party at 9 AM Eastern on Sunday

One of our favourite traditions that has been established in recent years is the Mushroom FM Christmas party.

Sure, we get together to play the top 100 songs as voted for by our wonderful listeners, and hopefully, you cast your vote when voting was open. But it’s also about just getting together, enjoying some festive tunes and having a few laughs in good company.

Voting will soon close in our holiday countdown

For the last two weeks, you've been helping us to make a list. So far, listeners have voted for over 300 songs in our holiday countdown. If you've not voted yet, you only have until midnight US Eastern time to cast your vote.

While our lips are sealed about the current tally, we will say that the top of the chart is very, very, very close. Your vote could be the clincher. And you know what they say, if you don't vote, you have no right to complain.

This week on The Mosen Explosion, baby, it's controversial outside

Next week, the regular Mosen Explosion won’t be airing, as we make way for our annual, traditional Christmas party and countdown. Oh boy! Excitement abounds! Have you voted yet? I’m making a list and checking it twice, and if you’re not on the list of people who’ve voted, that’s definitely naughty, not nice. is how you get on the nice list.

And we're off! Cast your vote in our 2018 holiday countdown

We love our holiday traditions at Mushroom FM, so this time of year can only mean one thing. Once again we’re looking for your top 10 holiday songs, so we can play the top 100 songs as voted for by the Mushroom crowd on December 16.

Voting is a snap. Visit, type in your top 10 songs, or if you need some inspiration, choose from the extensive list provided.

Your second chance to hear our Beatles White Album special

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.

Four hours devoted to The Beatles White Album, on this week's Mosen Explosion

Since 2012, The Mosen Explosion has been celebrating the 50th anniversary of each Beatles album's release. Now it's time to celebrate the Beatles most eclectic album in style, their self-titled double album, which, because of its cover, has become known as The White Album.
