Firing up the Smoker on the All Day Breakfast

Hi everyone

On the show a couple of weeks ago, a few people expressed interest in my smoker and how it worked. Last weekend of course we wanted to honour ANZAC Day, and demonstrating a smoker didn't seem like an appropriate thing to do.
However, this week, I've ventured out the back and recorded a demo for you which I'll be featuring on the show.

As always there's a great selection of music, and lots of friendly chat, so I hope you'll join me from 4 PM Eastern that's 6 AM Saturday on the east coast of Australia, and 8 AM in New Zealand.

Clyde McPhatter: 1955-59 this week on The Juke In The Back!

The Juke In The Back” focuses on the “soul that came before rock n’ roll,” the records that inspired Elvis, Buddy Holly, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and countless others.

No Early Years replay this week

The Early Years, heard originally at 05:00 PM Saturday afternoon, after The Mosen Explosion, normally replays Wednesday morning at 07:00 AM. Last weekend was Mushroom FM's 10th birthday and I celebrated it on The Early Years. But the main event, Mushroomstock 2020, took place Sunday from 08:00 AM to 08:00 PM thus pre-empting The Lost Lennon Tapes and Juke In The Back, meaning that listeners in the North American Eastern Time Zone and points west (except perhaps Hawaii) wouldn't hear them, unless their night owls. So they're running in the Early Years replay time slot this week only.

It's Music From and About Nova Scotia, this Week on Come by the Hills

Sara Hillis here to let you know that I'm live right after Mushroomstock on Sunday at 8:00 PM Eastern with another episode of Come by the Hills! This week, I've got a tribute to Nova Scotia and its musicians. We've all been shocked by the tragic and senseless events which took place in that province over last weekend, so I thought I'd do a little something to pay tribute to its people and the music that many of them create.

Get ready, our virtual music festival, Mushroomstock 2020, is almost here, and you can still get your tickets

Thanks to everyone who joined our walk down memory lane as we celebrated our 10th birthday. But now, on with the future as our next decade begins in style!

One of our most popular events during the last 10 years has been our creation of a live music festival without the horrible conditions and the bad
food, but with some acts you thought would never perform again. Join us on 26 April at 8 AM Eastern for our longest, most ambitious Mushroomstock yet,

It's a celebration with party songs this week on The Early Years!

After you've enjoyed "Mushroom FM turns 10, a celebration" tomorrow afternoon from 02:00 to 05:00 PM, the fun and festivities that are part of our 10th anniversary weekend continue on The Early Years where you'll enjoy the best music from Rock and Roll's Golden Age (its first quarter century) with an occasional nod to other decades and genres.
You'll hear songs about parties and celebrations primarily from the 50s and 60s with a few from the 70s and one from the 80s.

The Depths happily returns to Mushroom FM this weekend!

Greetings fellow music travelers.

I am very excited to announce the return of The Depths to Mushroom FM after a two-month hiatus.

This Saturday night at 11:00 Eastern, 8:00 Pacific, we will spend four transcendent hours together exploring the deeper side of classic rock, and we will take a few detours into jazz, psychedelia, and even some 70s funk.

You'll hear the story about Cream's 1968 Goodbye tour, and enjoy some performances from their gig at the San Diego Sports Arena from that Summer.
