The top 100 of 1959 continues this week on The Early Years!

After you've enjoyed The Mosen Explosion, don't touch that dial and join me for The Early Years where you'll hear the best music from Rock and Roll's Golden Age (its first quarter century) with an occasional nod to other decades and genres.
Last December and January, it was the top 100 of 1958; in April, it was the top 100 of 1969; and now the top 100 of 1959 that I started last week continues. This week, I pick up the countdown at #70 and continue to #40; and I'm sure there will be songs you haven't heard in a long time if ever. There are for me.

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.

We're Easing into Autumn, this Week on Come by the Hills!

Yes, here in the Northern hemisphere, the weather is turning cooler and there is even, here and there, the crunch of dry leaves underfoot. The true beauty of Autumn has not yet come upon us, but the season is here, so we'll be easin' into the season with some songs with an Autumnal theme, as well as other songs which have nothing to do with Autumn so the Kiwis don't accuse us of being Northern-Hemispherocentric or something. It'll be another episode sans features, but one thing it will most definitely not be sans is amazing Celtic and Folk music!

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.
