Live music comes out to play tonight on The Depths.

Greetings fellow music travelers.

On this holiday weekend in the US, come away with me to an imaginary stage where all kinds of different artists, from The Beatles to Otis Redding, from King Crimson to Earth, Wind and Fire, all come together to play a four-hour live concert.

It's a show you can enjoy with family and friends, or simply by yourself with a pair of headphones. the first band takes the imaginary stage promptly at 11:00 PM eastern, 8:00 PM Pacific, immediately following the Snowman. You can hear the show again on Wednesday at 4:00 PM Eastern.

"Seconds" continues this week on The Early Years!

After you've enjoyed The Mosen Explosion, don't touch that virtual dial and 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, it's part 5 of my listener-suggested theme begun four weeks ago, "Seconds". If an artist's first song reached #1, what did their second song do? As you'll hear, some did well and others didn't and you may hear some songs you haven't heard in a long time if ever.

Coming up on Saturday at the Described Movies: Miracle on 34th Street

Only on Mushroom escape:
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 Miracle on 34th Street from 1947.
Miracle on 34th Street (initially released as The Big Heart in the United Kingdom) is a 1947 American Christmas comedy-drama film written and directed by George Seaton and based on a story by Valentine Davies.

It's beginning to look a lot like...The Mosen Explosion

I’ve been doing this radio malarkey in various forms for about 46 years now, which is truly scary and ridiculous. And one of the things that I know causes all sorts of argument is the question of when to dust off the Christmas music.

I have a clear rule in Mosen Towers, the 25th of November, one month before the jolly old fat fellow comes down the chimney and brings me masses of electronics, is the right day to start playing it. So I’m already feeling festive as we prepare to introduce some festive tunes into the Mosen Explosion mix.

Earl Lewis and The Channels 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.

Join Me Live, this Week on Come by the Hills!

Yes, it's Sunday in Mushroom Land, and that means it's time for some great Celtic and Folk music on come by the Hills. Tonight at 8:00 PM Eastern, I'll present three hours of great music live on the air. We'll play a few songs from Canadian band Spirit of the West, as their lead singer John Mann died earlier this week, and we'll generally have a great time as we always do.

Amos Milburn’s R&B Drinking Songs 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.

It's all about Jimi, Billy and Buddy tonight on The Depths

Greetings fellow music travelers.

Yesterday, a monumental new box set from Jimi Hendrix Band of Gypsys called "Songs for Groovy Children - the Fillmore East concerts was released.

In just two days, Jimi Hendrix, Billy Cox and Buddy Miles laid the groundwork for a whole new style of hard, soulful, psychedelic funk that influenced countless musicians, but up until now, most people have only heard the heavily-edited 45 minutes of material that ended up on the original Band of Gypsys live album.

Yes dogs! Yes dogs! It's The Mosen Explosion

Hello exploding types. We’re almost ready for another Mosen Explosion coming live at you on Mushroom FM at 2 PM Eastern, 7 PM in the UK.

We’ll have the usual mix of some of the best music ever made and some great conversation.

As well as a little tech chatter, this week I’d like to hear about issues you’ve had gaining access to public facilities as a blind person. I suspect most of these stories will come from guide dog users but I don’t want to restrict the discussion.
