Our Christmas Cast-offs show plays songs that didn't get enough votes to make the top 100

Last Sunday, we played the top 100 holiday songs as voted for by the Mushroom Crowd. But listeners voted for 312 songs in total.

As has become our tradition over the last few years, join me, Jonathan Mosen, as we play four hours of Christmas cast-offs, a few of the 212 songs that people voted for, but not in large enough numbers to make the main chart.

It first airs in the Mosen Explosion replay slot, Tuesday at 5 AM Eastern time, 10 AM in the UK. If that’s stupid o’clock for you, we’ll play it again on Wednesday afternoon between 4 and 8 PM Eastern time.

It's A Christmas Gift For You tonight on The Early Years!

Come one, come all, to our 2018 holiday party at 9 AM Eastern on Sunday

One of our favourite traditions that has been established in recent years is the Mushroom FM Christmas party.

Sure, we get together to play the top 100 songs as voted for by our wonderful listeners, and hopefully, you cast your vote when voting was open. But it’s also about just getting together, enjoying some festive tunes and having a few laughs in good company.

Winter is Coming, this Week on Come by the Hills!

You might want to stay tuned after the Mushroom Fm annual holiday countdown, because after all the Christmas crackers have been pulled and all the silly toys and sillier jokes have fallen out, Come by the Hills will be paying homage to the shortest day of the year in the northern hemisphere with wintry themed music. We'll have all our usual features with a snowy twist, and you'll certainly want to get out the hot cocoa (or perhaps something stronger) for this one!

Hey! Santa Claus: R&B Christmas, part 1 this week on The Juke In The Back!

Voting will soon close in our holiday countdown

For the last two weeks, you've been helping us to make a list. So far, listeners have voted for over 300 songs in our holiday countdown. If you've not voted yet, you only have until midnight US Eastern time to cast your vote.

While our lips are sealed about the current tally, we will say that the top of the chart is very, very, very close. Your vote could be the clincher. And you know what they say, if you don't vote, you have no right to complain.

More Great Celtic Music, this Week on Come by the Hills!

Yes, it's that time of the week already, and again, the show will be broadcast live! In fact, unless circumstances prevent it, Come by the Hills will become a live and interactive show here on Mushroom Fm from now on! We'll be fulfilling a couple of requests this time around, celebrating the birthday of a great poet in "me music," and generally playing some amazing music from some amazing artists.

This week on The Mosen Explosion, baby, it's controversial outside

Next week, the regular Mosen Explosion won’t be airing, as we make way for our annual, traditional Christmas party and countdown. Oh boy! Excitement abounds! Have you voted yet? I’m making a list and checking it twice, and if you’re not on the list of people who’ve voted, that’s definitely naughty, not nice. http://MushroomFm.com/countdown2018 is how you get on the nice list.
