Starting this weekend, the Iceman's 150 show comes to Mushroom FM

They say ice and snow go together, right?

The Snowman is of course a much-loved Mushroom Fm institution. Now, we have the Iceman too, as he brings us his Iceman 150 show.

He takes the same radio personality approach as the people he grew up listening to and admiring, where the Radio host ran the show, made it entertaining, had loads of fun and held the listeners. His mission is to put on a great show with the best music, make people laugh, and have fun on the air and make them forget their problems. He says, "if I do that every show then my job is complete".

We're Going Welsh for St. David's Day, this Week on Come by the Hills!

It is indeed that time of year again! We've got two Celtic cultural days in the month of March, and Friday was the first of them, being the feast-day of St. David of Wales! So, before we get to all the green beer and such later this month with that other saint, let's take some time to honour the Welsh culture and especially its language and song this week on Mushroom Fm's premier Celtic music show!

More musical numbers tonight on The Early Years!

Join me for The Early Years where you'll enjoy the best variety of music from Rock and Roll's Golden Age (its first quarter century) with an occasional nod to other decades including music from before the rock era.
Tonight, I'll continue my listener-suggested theme, songs with numbers in their titles. I'll start by revisiting numbers two and five (thanks to your suggestions and a song I heard on another Mushroom FM show), then pick up where I left off at number eight and continue to number seventeen. You'll hear some songs you haven't heard in a long time if ever.

This week on The Mosen Explosion, by George! Some say it's your birthday!

Ah, summer. Wonderful summer. So glorious, so radiant, so warm, so gone. Only three short weeks ago, the feels like temperature was hotter than the actual temperature as we were sweltering in 34 degree heat. And now, the heat is electric as we switch everything over to hot after a very sudden cold snap that’s hit us with a feels-like temperature of 8 degrees. But you know, whether the weather be warm or cold, you’re always sure of a warm welcome to the jolly old Mosen Explosion, still pumping out the nonsense after all these years.
