Coming up on Monday's edition of The Blind Side, we talk about the show's future as we transition next week to a weekly podcast.

The Mosen Explosion celebrates 50 years of Revolver

Just like the name the Beatles, the album name Revolver has a double-meaning. It can mean the gun, or it can mean the record revolving on the turntable.

In terms of production, musical experimentation and sophistication, the Beatles had transcended all others with this remarkable album.

It's An Olympic Bonair

The Russian judge gives her a ten. The American judge gives her a nine. You can give her two hours of your time—it’s Bonair 6:00 – 8:00 EST on Mushroomfm.com and in all your fav music apps. With the Olympics in full swing, we will play songs about running, jumping, swimming, winning, losing and whatever else strikes your fancy. There will be the usual Bonnie banter, and Jonathan will join me for a political update and talk about his new show.

Don't miss The Elvis Presley Story, starting this weekend

begin a new rockumentary here on Mushroom FM. Having been in Britain for some time with our Beatles and British Invasion rocumentaries, we're going across the pond for an in-depth look at one of the most influential performers of the 20th century.

The Elvis Presley story was originally produced after extensive research in 1971. After Elvis's death in 1977, it was updated, and re-released. And it's that version that we'll be playing over the next seven weeks.
