Nancy's theme part 2 this week on The Early Years!

And affter you've enjoyed The Mosen Explosion tomorrow afternoon from 02:00 to 05:00 PM, don't touch that dial and join me in 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.
Five decades are represented musically this week as I continue the theme that I called "Nancy's Theme" last week because my wife of 49 years, Nancy, suggested it and did a good deal of the research. If you were with me last week, you know what it is, songs about days of the week.

My future on Mushroom FM, live coverage of the SpaceX launch and much more on The Mosen Explosion

Another week has rapidly rolled around and it’s nearly time for another Mosen Explosion on Mushroom FM.

Coming Up on Damo's All Day Breakfast


Well after last week's interview with Ranger Nick the camp oven cooking guru, I promised I'd make his chocolate pudding recipe during the week, and make it I did. It turned out so well, that I'd like to share the recipe with you on this week's show.

As always there's a great mix of music and chat, and I always look forward to hearing from you. If you'd like to get in touch during the show, email or tweet @damoonair using the #mushroomfm hashtag.
