Your second chance to hear our Beatles White Album special

Did you know that The Mosen Explosion replays on Mushroom FM? Hearing it live is the best experience because you can interact with other listeners and have input into the show. But if that’s not possible, you can hear it every Tuesday morning between 5 and 9 AM Eastern US time, that’s 10 AM in the UK. It’s also Monday night at 9 PM in Eastern Australia, which is a jolly good time.

Musical relatives tonight 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 including music from before the rock era.
During the run of The Early Years, several listeners have suggested show ideas. For at least the next two shows, I'm featuring one suggested by a friend of more than 50 years and a loyal listener. It's songs recorded by related people together or separately. There are a surprisingly large number of songs and they'll span the decades from the 1940s to the 1980s.

Lest We Forget, this Week on Come by the Hills

It's time once again to mark Remembrance Day on Mushroom Fm's premier Celtic Music show. We have several folk songs in honour of both World Wars as well as some very special poetry from a poet called Jack White, who once held the position of Regimental Bard with the Regimental Pipes and Drums of the Calgary Highlanders. I hope you'll join me as we join with millions of people around the world to commemorate the hundredth anniversary of the end of the First World War and pay tribute to those who have fought in other wars over the years.

Four hours devoted to The Beatles White Album, on this week's Mosen Explosion

Since 2012, The Mosen Explosion has been celebrating the 50th anniversary of each Beatles album's release. Now it's time to celebrate the Beatles most eclectic album in style, their self-titled double album, which, because of its cover, has become known as The White Album.

The best music from the 50s and 60s tonight 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 including music from before the rock era.
It's an encore edition of The Early Years from a year ago this week because of audio issues with that new, shiny Windows 10 computer I've talked about on the show.
I have a couple of version comparisons that I think you'll find interesting, particularly their chart action (or not) in North America and the UK. You may be surprised.

More Great Celtic Music, this Week on Come by the Hills!

Please to remember the fourth of November... No, wait! That's not right, but what is right is that on Guy Fawkes Eve, there'll be Celtic music for the asking on Mushroom Fm's Premier Celtic Music Show! All our usual features are back, and we'll have three hours of folkish fun. Best of all, if you're in a part of North America which is switching to standard time this weekend, it'll feel like the show is on an hour earlier than usual. So, take advantage of the time change and hang out with us for a while.
