Jaw-dropping songs this week on The Early Years

Join me for The Early Years where you'll enjoy the best variety of music from the 50s and 60s with an occasional nod to other decades, including music from before the rock era which is generally accepted as starting in 1955.
For several weeks now, I've been talking about jaw-dropping songs. What are jaw-dropping songs? As defined by a regular listener, jaw-dropping songs are songs that made you stop and listen the first time you heard them, whether you ultimately liked them or not; or songs that made you say, "what the frig!"

Mushroom Escape, our Old-time Radio Channel, now working again on TuneIn

Yesterday, we were proud to relaunch Mushroom Escape, our old-time radio channel.

We're pleased to say that TuneIn has now updated its database. This means you can find Mushroom Escape in the free TuneIn apps for iOS and Android, and in many places like Alexa, Google Assistant and Sonos.

Enjoy the pictures that only the theatre of the mind can provide, on Mushroom Escape.

The Return of Mushroom Escape

Many of you will remember, back in the days of Mushroom FM 1.0, a sister station which we had called Mushroom Escape, playing a variety of old-time radio.

Mushroom Escape is, as of right now, back on the air! Bruce Toews has spent a great deal of time over the last few months planning the revived station, learning a new automation system, and implementing it all, and he is sure you will enjoy the new station.

We have more of a variety than ever this time around - everything from Christian to comedy, mystery to quiz shows, theatre, science fiction, and a whole lot more.

It's all about trivia this week on The Early Years!

Join me for The Early Years where you'll enjoy the best variety of music from the 50s and 60s with an occasional nod to other decades, including music from before the rock era which is generally accepted as starting in 1955.
There are two songs that mention today's date. What are they? Tune in to find out.
After fulfilling a request for a first-time listener, I will play the songs that made up a trivia quiz of music from the 50s and 60s during a cruise that Nancy and I enjoyed in 2013. We scored 32 out of 40, 80% but I'm sure you'll do much better.

The Mosen Explosion includes a major Mushroom Fm announcement

Due to a shortage of qualified personnel, I’m back with you for another four hours of stuff, on The Mosen Explosion.

This week, it’s quite an exceptional show. I’ll be joined by a familiar Internet radio name to bring you a significant announcement about Mushroom FM. It’s been in the works for more than a couple of months now and I’m thrilled to be able to spill the beans at last. I think you’re going to be thrilled as well.

A Tribute to Stan Rogers, this Week on Come by the Hills!

Due to the overwhelming success of the Stan Rogers special I put together last year, I've decided to do another one on the occasion of the thirty-fifth anniversary of his far-too-untimely death on June 2, 1983. Stan Rogers is likely Canada's most beloved folk musician and his work and legacy have been ambassadors of the Canadian spirit for decades. His music is known world-wide, and his influence can be traced down the years. I'm sure that many of Canada's current singer-songwriters owe their own careers to Stan's music.
