We're exploding in triumph again this week.

I hope you'll join me for another four hours where we just don't know what's going to happen, we don't know what little remark made by me or you will spark a lively discussion among our Mosen Explosion family via Twitter or email. We do know there'll be plenty of great music, wacky news, a look at history and a Bonnie Bulletin. But it's the back and forth, the unpredictability, that makes it all so much fun.

The Mosen Explosion asks, will you Yodel for your Chocolate Fish Supper?

First of all, attention! Attention! If you're in Europe and your clocks have gone back this weekend, then for one crazy week only, the Mosen Explosion will start an hour earlier, because you're closer to Eastern time than usual! Attention attention attention! So we still start at 2 PM Eastern, but it's now 6 in the UK. Attention!

For 1 week only, 4 PM Saturday, Nothing but Country on Mosen On Down

This week, I'm filling in for Bruce Toews at 4 Pm Eastern. What a privilege to be in the TOTW hot seat. And What a privilege to be sandwiched between the mighty music machine and the telephonic Musical Web.

Chuck in the Mosen Explosion

No particular place to go this weekend? Well, why not head over to Mushroom FM, where entertainment is always on. John Lennon once famously said, "if you were going to give rock and roll another name, you might call it Chuck Berry". Chuck Berry fused the critical elements of rhythm and blues and country to be one of the instrumental figures in the creation of rock and roll. Proving that age catches up with all of us if we live long enough, Sunday is Chuck Berry's 89th birthday.

Mushroom FM Offline for Maintenance sometime during the evening of 9 October

Hello everyone, the provider of some of our systems have advised us that they need to perform emergency maintenance. This will mean that Mushroom FM's streams will go offline sometime between 9 PM and midnight on 9 October.
It's estimated that the down-time should be no more than five to 30 minutes.

We'll be monitoring the situation to ensure service is restored as soon as it's possible for us to do so.

Thanks for your patience, and all your support of Mushroom FM.

John Lennon Special Today, and the end of the current Beatle Beat Series

Sadly, Bob Kanish is unavailable to descend with us to the depths today, so I hope you will join me for a special to celebrate the 75th anniversary of John Lennon's birth. It's three hours of Beatles and John Lennon music, and you're welcome to have a say in what is played. If you have any special memories associated with John or the Beatles, do feel free to share them. You can drop me an email or send me a tweet.
The show is on at 9 PM Eastern.

at 2 PM Eastern, 7 UK, It's the Wild and Windy Mosen Explosion

We are delighted to be exploding once again from the windy city. A few cities around the world call themselves that, Chicago for one. But I think Wellington may be the windiest national capital around. And boy, it's getting horrifically windy out there! Couple all this horrifically windy horrific wind with some explosive fun, and you can be sure we'll be blowing the cobwebs away.
We have a bumper banana report addition this week, with two bananas and one honorary banana who always brings cookies when she visits. She needs to visit more often, that's what she needs to do!

Special John Lennon 75th Programming

9 October would have been John Lennon's 75th birthday. A complex and highly nuanced individual, John became one of the most significant composers and performers in the history of music. His birthday and his legacy is certainly worthy of recollection and celebration.
I'll be doing that with two shows in the coming week on Mushroom FM.

Rare TV appearances and more, on this week's Beatle Beat

It's the show that's way beyond compare. Two hours of the Beatles together and separately, plus plenty of Beatles news and history. That's how we roll on Beatle Beat.
This week, two features from this week in Beatles history on the telly. Back in 1964, the Beatles recorded in England for a TV show that was only broadcast in the US. We'll play you that performance.
And in the second hour, John and George take questions from iconic British interviewer David Frost and the studio audience in 1967, as they discuss meditation.

it's iPhone release weekend on The Mosen Explosion

Tiny tots, with their i's all aglow, that's a lower case i there, found it hard to sleep on Thursday night as we awaited the arrival of the latest phone of i. Yup, this year, the presence came on the 25th of September. I'll be sharing more of my thoughts on the iPhone 6s Plus, and really looking forward to hearing yours if you've bought one of the new gadgets.
