We're Featuring Love this Week on Come by the Hills!

Since Valentine's Day is coming up in a few days, I thought we'd devote this week's Come by the Hills to music about love. There will be songs about romance, seduction, and even marriage. We won't have any of our usual features this week, just lots of music in honour of Valentine's Day. So if you're feeling romantic, tune in on Sunday night after The Early Years or on Friday morning following The Daily Fibre!

No Mushroom Cap Lounge tonight!

Unfortunately, we are still cleaning and painting here at the Mushroom Cap Lounge and the paint fumes are so strong... OK, we're still suffering through some digital disaster recovery here, so we have no way of producing the zainyness that is the Mushroom Cap Lounge tonight. Instead, we'll be running a replay of the Mushroom Munch. We look forward to opening our doors once again next Friday night, after we get done unpainting ourselves in a corner. We look forward to your patronage then.

No Mushroom Munch Today

Due to circumstances, way beyond our control, the Mushroom Munch will not be broadcast today. However, we will of course have some great musical memories to share with you, and hopefully will be back at our regular broadcast time tomorrow.

One half of Waves Over the Sea goes all Romantic

The Irish are well known for their passionate nature. This was easily demonstrated last Saturday by my co-host Sabrina when she lost all control, after some Irish boy kicked an oval shaped object over a bar in Paris. Heavens above you’ve never heard such screams, shouts and yelling! Lord help us if they go on to do the Grand Slam!

The Daily Fibre is spaced out

Every week day at 3 AM, and repeated at 3 Pm Eastern US time, Mushroom FM’s Daily Fibre keeps you on the cutting edge of technology news.

It’s only right, given the magnitude of our top story, that we’re devoting a little over half the programme to extensive coverage of the successful Spacex Falcon Heavy launch. It’s an incredible achievement and we’ll give you the facts, and on locations sounds of the big event.

iOS 11.3 beta 2 is out for developers, we look at some intriguing new things, including an audio demonstration of the new battery health feature.

The Rolling Stone top 500 greatest songs of all time continues this week on The Early Years

Regular listeners to The Early Years know that I play the best variety of music from the 50s and 60s including music from before the rock era which is generally accepted as starting in 1955.

More Celtic Music this Week on Come by the Hills!

Well, it's a new month and another weekend, and it's time once again for Come by the Hills, the Celtic Music Show! We'll have three hours of great folk music from hither and yon, and we'll have all our usual features as well. so, if you're keen for Celtic music this week, then join me on Sunday after The Early Years, or catch the replay on Friday morning after Jonathan's Daily Fibre!

Commemorating a 35th anniversary on this week's Mosen Explosion

First of all, a quick song for out times…”Take, me out to the ball, game, take, me out to the crowd…”. Oh, wait, wrong ball game. I dunno what to sing for the soup bowl actually.

Never mind, The Mosen Explosion inexorably rolls on for another week. Sadly, on 4 February 1983, Karen Carpenter died aged just 32. In collaboration with her brother Richard, she produced some outstanding music. Amazing use of multitracked harmonies, lush arrangements, and that full, rich, unmistakable voice. The Carpenters are our featured artists on this week’s show to honour her legacy.

Howlin’ Wolf: The Early Years 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.

Friday, Friday, gotta get Fibre on Friday

End your week with the latest in tech news with some great tunes thrown in. That’s how we roll on The Daily Fibre.

Amazon has reported as well, and Alexa growth is off the charts.

The Uber iOS app just became a bunch less useful, and no one’s clear why.

Now you see it, now you don’t. Telegram vanishes from the App Store, then returns.
