This week, live on The Mosen Explosion, can I just get my money back?

Once again that happy time has rolled around when I’ll be with you for three hours of fun, conversation and great music on The Mosen Explosion. The show also forms the basis of the Mosen At Large Podcast, so if you want to influence the podcast in real time and watch it as it’s recorded live, do join us on Mushroom FM.

This week has been a remarkable one for news, with senators in the US making a sham out of their constitutional duty and Britain finally leaving the EU. I’ll be commenting on both events and the common lesson they can teach us.

Like a bridge over troubled water, we will span the Depths

Greetings fellow music travelers.

This week marks the 50th anniversary of the release of Simon and Garfunkel's masterpiece album, "Bridge over Troubled Water."

Throughout the night, we will hear some different takes on classic Paul Simon tunes and, in the fourth hour, we will visit a sold-out Carnegie Hall in 1969 where Simon and Garfunkel perform songs from the album a full two months before its release.

Along the way, we'll encounter rare tracks from classic artists who are touring this Summer such as steely Dan, Steve Winwood and Hall and Oates.

More songs about mining and minerals 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, I conclude my 2-part, listener-suggested theme, "songs about mining and minerals". You'll hear songs from the 1940s to the 1980s from the country, folk, pop and rock genres including some "stretches" as I referred to them last week.

Celebrating Robby Burns, this Week on Come by the Hills!

Yes, it's that time of year again, and though we're a day late on Mushroom FM's premier Celtic music show, I hope we will not be a dollar short. It's Burns weekend of course! And why not celebrate with an encore of last year's Burns special? Life has largely overtaken me this week, but I didn't want to leave you Burns-less. So, enjoy 2019's trip through his music and poetry in the meantime, and I hope to be back live with you next week.

Catch Come by the Hills on Sunday at 8:00 PM Eastern, or on Friday at 4:00 AM Eastern, 9:00 AM in the UK and Ireland!

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 Bird on a Wire from 1990.

It was shot mainly in British Columbia, Canada.
The title refers to the Leonard Cohen song "Bird on the Wire".

Hear ye, hear ye! The Mosen Explosion is back, and shorter than ever!

In December, we were of course urging people to hark! Now that it’s January and there’s an impeachin’ going on, we say “hear ye, hear ye” and welcome back to the Mosen Explosion after its summer break.

The first thing to note is that the show is now mercifully shorter. It still starts at the same time, 2 PM Eastern, 7 PM in the UK, but it runs for three hours rather than four. This is to allow me time to put the Mosen At Large Podcast together, which features some talky bits of the show, and still have some time to hang out with the family on my Sunday afternoon.

Percy Mayfield – 1949-60 this week on The Juke In The Back!
