Halloween, 1949 and early 1950s music this week on The Early Years!

After you've enjoyed The Mosen Explosion, don't touch that device and join me for 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.

There's still a Mosen Explosion in these changing times

If there’s one thing that’s constant, it’s change. Oh the irony. Even time isn’t constant anymore. A few weeks ago, New Zealand’s clocks went forward for the summer. This meant that I started my show an hour later, since we keep US Eastern time, which didn’t change.

Last weekend, the clocks went back in Europe and the UK. This meant that for the last week, Mushroom FM shows have been an hour earlier in that part of the world, since US Eastern time hadn’t gone back.

It's the Annual Halloween Special, this Week on come by the Hills!

Yes, we're back this weekend with another episode of Mushroom FM's premier Celtic music show, and as Halloween is almost upon us, we'll be spending three hours in the land of fairies, elves and other mythical creatures. We'll have songs about ghosts and mysterious visitations, as well as songs about betrayal and tragedy of a very numan kind.

The Depths returns with a tribute to Ginger Baker

Greetings fellow music travelers.

I am thrilled to report that my long painful journey through surgery and recovery is going well, and that now I am ready for all of us to go on our next musical excursion together.

On tonight's edition of The Depths, we will begin by paying our proper respects to Eddie Money and Ric Ocasek.

We will also have our ears tantalized by new archival releases from Steve Miller, Nektar and James Brown just to name a few.

1949 music this week on The Early Years!

After you've enjoyed "songs that go bleep bleep bleep" on The Mosen Explosion, don't touch that device and join me for 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.

The songs on the Explosion go bleep bleep bleep

It’s true! Due to a lack of qualified personnel, I’m back with another edition of The Mosen Explosion on Mushroom FM at 2 Pm Eastern, 7 PM in the UK.

It’s getting more and more common to find our digital assistants bleeping in the middle of song titles that were always thought to be perfectly innocent. I mean, dude, even Aunty BBC has played these songs! I’ll give you some examples, and can assure you that whenever possible, the word Soup will continue to be bleeped on this show as it ought to be.
