The Five Keys, part 2 - 1954-57 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.

Celebrating An Amazing Talent and an Amazing Album, this week on Come by the Hills!

2019 marks the fiftieth anniversary of Liege and Leaf, the highly influencial Folk-rock album by British band Fairport Convention. Also, June 1 would have been the birthday of their lead vocalist on that album, Sandy Denny! She was only 31 when she died in 1978, and she led a somewhat complicated life, but her talent for song-writing and vocal interpretation is second to none! So, to mark these two occasions, this week, I'll be playing the entire album of Liege and leaf, some songs written and/or sung by Sandy Denny, and some other great Folk-rock tunes.

It's all about the weekend this week on The Early Years!

After you enjoy The Mosen Explosion, join me for The Early Years where you'll enjoy the best variety of 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 all about the weekend, the time between Friday and Monday when everyone hopefully gets to relax. All kinds of weekends will be represented in song, from funky and wild to lonely and happy, as well as places you could go for the weekend.

Funny voice dictation errors, A WWDC recap and plenty of great music on The Mosen explosion, Saturday at 2 PM Eastern

After last week, I wrote to Mushroom FM management asking if I did well enough to be allowed back on at 2 PM US Eastern time, 7 PM UK on Saturday. That’s bright and early at 6 AM on a Sunday morning in New Zealand.

Mushroom FM management wrote back and said I was marginally, but only marginally, better than dead air and that I may as well have another show. This puts a new take on the old song, “I’m going to sit right down and write myself a letter”.

Jonathan Mosen made a Member of the New Zealand Order of Merit in New Zealand's Queen's Birthday Honours

Jonathan is one of the most inspiring people I’ve ever known. Today, the New Zealand Government has announced that my husband and Mushroom FM's founder has been made a Member of the New Zealand Order of Merit by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

Today is the Queen's Birthday holiday here, an occasion where outstanding New Zealanders are honored. Jonathan's honor is for services to the blind community.

It's a Tribute to Stan Rogers, this week on Come by the Hills!

Sunday, June 2nd, will be the 36th anniversery of the untimely and tragic death of one of Canada's greatest musicians and ambassadors, Stan Rogers. So, to mark this occasion, I will be replaying a show that I produced in 2018. Stan only had about thirteen years on the public stage, and I always wonder what kinds of songs he might have written if he had lived longer, what topics he might have tackled and whose stories he might have sung into life if is own life had not been cut short so suddenly in an airplane accident in 1983.

Saturday songs this week on The Early Years!

Join me for The Early Years where you'll enjoy the best variety of music from Rock and Roll's Golden Age (its first quarter century) with an occasional nod to other decades and genres.
It's the first Saturday edition of the sho and to celebrate that, every song has something to do with Saturday. Some you'll know, some perhaps not.
You can contact me any time by e-mail at steve@mushroomfm.com with comments about the show and suggestions for future shows.
