The Mosen Explosion celebrates the incomparable Dame Vera Lynn turning 100

At this crazy time of year, remember that the Mosen Explosion will still be starting an hour earlier than usual in some parts of the world, including Europe and the UK.

I single them out for mention this week, because on this week’s show, we’re paying tribute to a British national treasure on her very special day. I’m taking advantage of the fact that even though it will be Sunday for much of our listening audience, it will already be Monday 20 March in New Zealand. And Monday 20 March is the 100th birthday of the incomparable Dame Vera Lynn.

The time has come for time to change

It's that crazy time that happens twice a year, where clocks start shifting around at different times.

Mushroom FM keeps US Eastern time as its official time zone, and clocks in much of North America go forward for daylight saving time this Sunday.
