It's the Marvelous Magnificent Magical Mystery Mosen Explosion, where dreams come true

Who’d have thunk it! Who’d have thunk that when I started dabbling in this Internet radio thing at the end of 1998, we’d still be here in 2018, with people being able to listen just as easily on portable devices as they can to terrestrial radio. My my, hey hey. And it’s time once again for the first Mosen Explosion of 2018.

New Zealand gets to the new year a full 18 hours before Eastern US time, a massive 21 hours before US Pacific time, and a still impressive 13 hours before the UK and Ireland. So, no matter what the time, why not do what so many people do at this time each year. Set an alarm if needed, crank up your best speakers and join us for one of the first broadcasts ever to be made in 2018 anywhere.
