Join jaunty Jonathan for a feeling flaming fabulously fantastic Mosen Explosion!

I feel good, diddle diddle diddle dit, dit, I knew that I would now, diddle diddle diddle dit dit. an, where are those old singing speech synthesisers when they'd come in handy, eh? Where?

Last week, inspired by eye pain, we featured songs all about eyes and looking. And holy soup! I could easily have done a show four times longer, there was so much material.

Celebrating Ringo Starr's 76th birthday today

One of the most influential musicians of the 20th century, Ringo Starr, was born 76 years ago today. That sure is worthy of celebration.

Join me, Jonathan Mosen, right after Steve Cutway at 6 Pm Eastern, 11 PM UK, as for two hours we say happy birthday to Ringo. The first hour, our regular 60s slot, features nothing but music by The Beatles, particularly songs where Ringo sang lead vocals. Other tracks we'll play showcase his skills as the best rock drummer.

In my second hour, where we're stuck in the 70s, we'll draw from Ringo's well known and lesser-known 70s track.

Eye Eye Eye? Another Mosen Explosion's coming up.

If you were listening to last week's show, or indeed some of my new week-day shows here on the 'Shroom, you will have heard that I have been stricken, stricken I tell you, but this crazy eye pain. It's not a common thing for me at all, and I don't like it, because it seems ridiculous to be pained by an organ that's totally dysfunctional and useless, because that makes me feel dysfunctional and useless.

It's easier than ever to broadcast with us. An audio demo explains

Have you heard all of the cool new shows coming from our Mushroom Pot yet? It’s entering week three of service today. Based on measurements of traffic to our servers, it seems that many of you have discovered all the great new shows, and are listening longer. Thank you so much.

Announcing the departure of Brian Hartgen

Hi everyone, it's with sadness but grateful thanks for his immense contribution that I advise the Mushroom FM family that Brian Hartgen has resigned from Mushroom Fm to pursue other projects. This is a totally amicable parting and we wish him all the best for the future.

The Mosen Explosion in interesting times

When the Mosen Explosion goes to air this week, it'll be the 26th in our official time zone of US Eastern. But in little old New Zealand, it will be bright and early on the 27th. And by an incredible co-incidence, the 27th of June is the wedding anniversary of two regular contributors to the show. Remarkable how these things happen, eh? Bonnie is celebrating a wedding anniversary, which no doubt she will talk about in her Bonnie bulletin, and so too am I. How cool is that?

Farewell and thanks to jeremy Hartley

Sadly, for health and other personal reasons, Jeremy feels unable to continue to produce Say it with Jazz at the moment.

Those of us who've been loyal fans of Say It With Jazz have immense admiration for Jeremy's meticulous research and extremely high standard of presentation.

We'll miss having him around, and hope that his circumstances will allow him to join us again in future. We're glad he intends being a regular listener to the 'Shroom, so we'll all be able to keep in touch. Thanks Jeremy for your great contribution.

It's a Seasonal Mosen Explosion this week

Here in New Zealand, the nights they are cold. Many of our days are wet and windy. Yup, it's winter. On the other side of the world, Brian D is getting ready to hold his annual summer party! What a lucky dude. It helps him get over the football you see. And it was on 19 June 1936 that Tommy DeVito of The Four Seasons was born. Oh what a night!

The Mosen Explosion says, don't stop thinking about tomorrow

Tomorrow, tomorrow, I love ya, tomorrow, doo doo doo, da doo, da deeeeee. And when the Mosen Explosion is on, tomorrow will indeed be only a day away with all its excitement and promise.

Apple will be revealing plenty of exciting new features on all its platforms, and we'll be covering that extensively with our awesome Tech Team show. Are you looking forward to the big reveal? What are you hoping for? We'll look forward to all your thoughts ahead of the big day.

Announcing @MushroomFMNow, real-time tweetsa bout what we're playing

As we blogged earlier this week, Mushroom FM is preparing to begin a new era with more fresh content so you can listen longer. That also means that we’re able to stream a lot more information through the title bar of your media player, and the Now Playing screen in many smartphone apps. TuneIn Radio will also show you what’s on more often, even before you start listening.
