"Seconds": the penultimate edition this week on The Early Years!

join me for The Early Years where you'll hear the best music from Rock and Roll's Golden Age (its first quarter century) with an occasional nod to other decades and genres.
This week, it's part 8 of my mammoth, multi-part, listener-suggested theme begun Nov. 2, 2019, "Seconds" (the songs not the time interval). If an artist's first song reached #1, what did their second song do? As you'll hear, some did well and others didn't and you may hear some songs you haven't heard in a long time if ever, and at least one you probably won't want to hear ever again!

Coming up on Saturday at the Described Movies: Mamma Mia

Only on Mushroom escape:
From this Saturday at 2am Eastern, that’s 8pm Saturday in NZ, 6pm in Sydney and 7am in the UK, and repeated every four hours throughout the day , it’s the described movie Mamma Mia from 2008.

The Cleftones (R.I.P. Herb Cox) 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.

Ushering in the final year of the decade on our Mosen Explosion New Year special

We’re almost there! 2020 will be the final year of this century’s second decade, and we’re seeing in the new year in style in our traditional Mosen Explosion new year special. It’s coming live from New Zealand, which means we get to try 2020 on for size before it gets to the rest of the world.

It's a Christmas Encore, this Week on Come by the Hills!

Yes, it's still the holiday season, so I thought I'd give you the gift of one more chance to listen to the Christmas edition of Mushroom FM's premier Celtic music show! We've got songs, stories, and of course a whole lot of fun. So, tune in tonight at 8:00 PM Eastern, or catch the replay on Friday at 4:00 AM Eastern. The archive will also be properly updated in a couple of days, and you can find it at: Merry Christmas again, and I wish you all the best as we approach 2020!

Go inside the recording studio with Frank zappa, tonight on The depths.

Greetings fellow music travelers.

For the final session of The Depths of the decade, I have a special feature for you in the first hour of our journey together. We are going to go deep inside the studio as Frank Zappa leads a stellar group of world-class musicians through recording the basic tracks for what would become his ground-breaking second solo album, "Hot Rats."

Then, we'll explore other historically-significant treasures from the past that were unearthed during this decade from Santana, Humble Pie, Joe Cocker, John Coltrane and more.

Remembering Jack Scott and 1959 music this week on The Early Years!

Like Snow White FM, The Early Years doesn't take a break either, even if there are those who wish it would. That's because The Early Years precedes Snow White FM and Snow White FM follows The Early Years. Cool that.
Syntactically, it's the end of the decade even though the Common Era started in year 1 not year 0. 60 years ago, the fifties decade was becoming the sixties decade even though the purists dispute that; just like they believe that 2020 is the end of a decade rather than the beginning of one.

SnowWhiteFM for Dec 28

In the first hour of SnowWhiteFM this week, we'll find out just who actually had a white christmas this year, and it wasn't you. We'll hear about the highway patrol officer who could run 60 miles per hour, and hear all the stupid holidays that you might otherwise have missed. That plus a great lineup of tunes from the late 60's.
Hour 2 features a rundown of the current weather around the nation, a look at this day in history, and a fun trip into the early 70's. And, we'll have coffee with Ed Potter.
And hour 3 is just some of the best darned music on the planet.

From this Saturday at 2am Eastern, that’s 8pm Saturday in NZ, 6pm in Sydney and 7am in the UK, and repeated every four hours throughout the day , it’s the described movie New Year's Eve from 2011.
