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.

The Beatles One Plus, and the Abbey Road Anniversary, on this week's Beatle Beat

Beatle beat is back with the best music ever made, plus plenty of fab four-related news and history.
The Beatles pulled a surprise in the last week, announcing that some of their most popular songs are going to be remixed in 5.1 surround sound, accompanied by some amazing videos, many never commercial available before. It's all part of the Beatles One Plus package due on 6 November. I'll have comprehensive information about the release, and we'll go track by track through each video and explain their historical significance.

We're Exploding again at 2 PM Eastern, 7 PM UK on Sunday

There are so many amazing, entertaining, informative, quality things to do on the Internet...and then there's the Mosen Explosion to offer up a bit of contrast.

Remember, you can call that any time, at 206-600-5486. Let your voice ring out throughout the planet and surrounding galaxies, all with one simple phone call to 206-600-5486.

Jonathan's inf or Anne, with the Historic, Experimental, Exploding Zone

Sadly, wee Anne is unable to be with us this week, so Jonathan Mosen, her humble understudy, will be trying to get you into the right frame of mind for a groovy weekend, immediately after Brian Dalton welcomes you to it.
So why is it called the historic, experimental, exploding zone, eh? Why?
It's historic, because this will be the first ever show streamed on my brand new computer, which arrived and I set up yesterday.

Fab music, fab news, it's got to be Beatle Beat

We have plenty of great music by the Beatles together and separately on Beatle Beat this week, including a few unusual tracks.
Did you know that back in the early 70s, Ringo Starr sang in a lavish orchestral version of The Who's rock opera, Tommy? It's just been re-released, and we'll let you hear what Ringo sounded like.
Paul is part of a brand new love song for the earth, seeking to raise awareness about climate change. We'll give it a listen.
