The Checkers 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.
The “Juke In The Back” features another highly underrated R&B vocal group from the 1950s: The Checkers.  They never scored a national hit, but they’re one of the finest examples of polished 1950s R&B and their story deserves to be shared.

Who's the Winner from Last Week's Show?

I would love it if you could join me at 4pm eastern, that's 9pm in the UK for another edition of "Anne's Lazy Sunday" We do have a winner from last week and the opening track is from 1971!

You can expect to hear all the usual features, such as:

Quiz on Sunday - I ask you a simple question and the first person to contact me with the correct answer gets to start next week's show with a song of their choice

Bargain Bucket B-Sides - This week, you can not only hear the B-Sides but you can also hear the actual hit as well, the years are 1967 and 1983

tributes, memories and celebrations this week on The Early Years!

After you've enjoyed The Mosen Explosion tomorrow afternoon from 02:00 to 05:00 PM, stay tuned 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.
It's all about tributes, memories and celebrations this week. I'll pay tribute to Little Millie small who died on Tuesday at the age of 72 as the result of a stroke.
A significant musical event took place in North America on May 9, 1970 and I'll tell you all about it.

Let it be, new Sonos gear, and a generally big week for tech. It's The Mosen Explosion

Another Mosen Explosion is fast approaching on Mushroom FM, and with it, the end of a long-running series. Back in 2013 on the show, we began celebrating the 50th anniversaries of the official Beatles album releases. This weekend, it’s the 50th anniversary of the Let It Be album. Thankfully, the Beatles haven’t remixed this one. It of course received a do-over in 2003 with the Let It Be Naked album, taking out all the horrible Phil Specter over-production.

the Mother's Day weekend edition of Damo's All Day Breakfast

Hi everyone.

I'd love you to join me once again as we fire up the bacon and eggs for another All Day Breakfast. It's mother's day this weekend in Australia, as I believe it is in other parts of the world, so if there are songs that make you think of your mum, or that perhaps you as a mum would like to hear, there'll certainly be plenty of room for your requests on the show.

As always there'll be plenty of Ausie and Kiwi music, and lots of friendly chat, so I hope you'll join me from 4 PM Eastern on Friday, 8 PM in the UK, or 6 AM Saturday morning in eastern Australia.

Hello. Sara Hillis here again to let you know what's coming up tonight on the fabulously folky feast that is Come by the Hills! Join me live at 8:00 PM Eastern for three hours of songs about May, some Nova Scotia songs we didn't get to last week (including a comparison of three versions of The Ballad of Spring Hill for your perusal and pleasure,) and whatever else I feel like playing.
