On The Mosen Explosion, the dance goes on

It’s time for yet another edition of the jolly old Mosen Explosion on Mushroom FM. As I write this, I’m heading back from Heidi and Henry’s wedding, which was a special, happy, moving, and perfect day.

Since we’re in post-wedding mode, I’ll be playing some of the music the happy couple chose for their background music playlist, and the wedding dance, at which I was the DJ. Dude!

Announcing Mushroom FM's new Technology and Music show, The Daily Fibre

I'm Jonathan Mosen, inviting you to join me for Mushroom FM's new technology magazine show, The Daily Fibre, on-air every week day.

It's the Marvelous Magnificent Magical Mystery Mosen Explosion, where dreams come true

Who’d have thunk it! Who’d have thunk that when I started dabbling in this Internet radio thing at the end of 1998, we’d still be here in 2018, with people being able to listen just as easily on portable devices as they can to terrestrial radio. My my, hey hey. And it’s time once again for the first Mosen Explosion of 2018.

at 3 AM Eastern, 9 PM New Zealand time New Year's eve, Jonathan and Crew are here with the traditional new year show

There's nothing like keeping up the traditions at this time of year. Join Jonathan, Bonnie, the bananas, the nearly banana-in-law and others, as we explode into 2018. New Zealand gets to the new year a full 18 hours before Eastern US time, a massive 21 hours before US Pacific time, and a still impressive 13 hours before the UK and Ireland. So, no matter what the time, why not do what so many people do at this time each year. Set an alarm if needed, crank up your best speakers and join us for one of the first broadcasts ever to be made in 2018 anywhere.

A Live Mosen Explosion Christmas Special at 2 PM Eastern, 7 PM UK

At 2 PM Eastern time, 7 PM UK Time on Christmas day, Christmas is over in New Zealand. But I’m able to prolong the magic a little longer by spending four hours with you.

Join Jonathan Mosen for the Christmas Castoffs, songs that didn't make the top 100

At 5 AM Eastern time on Tuesday, and once again in the usual Mosen Explosion slot of 2 PM Eastern on Christmas Eve, I’ll be continuing the tradition I started last year of playing songs that people voted for, but which didn’t make the top 100 countdown. Altogether, the mushroom crowd voted for 269 songs, so there is plenty to fill a four-hour show and then some.
We’ll have a mix of genres including country, traditional, and of course novelty.
I hope you’ll join me for one of the playings of Christmas Castoffs, only on your famous festive fungal station, Mushroom Fm.

Thanks for a great countdown and party

On 17 December 2017, we broadcast our holiday countdown and Christmas party. It was the culmination of a two-week voting process, in which voters nominated over 200 of their favourite holiday songs.

On that Sunday, we all got together to hear the top 100, and to share some holiday cheer via email and Twitter. Thanks to everyone's participation, it was an unforgettable day, a party in true Mushroom FM tradition.

Our holiday countdown and Christmas party is tomorrow. Here's all you need to know, including how to check who you're seated with

How cool that it’s that time of year again! We’re excited! Mushroom FM's 2017 holiday countdown and Christmas party is tomorrow! Starting at 9 AM US Eastern time, 2 PM UK, we'll be counting down the top 100 holiday songs as chosen by you

While we all enjoy the festive tunes, our virtual online Christmas party puts those who have voted in the countdown at Christmas tables, named after the first four reindeer in 'Twas the night before Christmas.
