We're Honouring Remembrance Day this Week on Come by the Hills!

In honour of those who have made the supreme sacrifice, I have decided to feature several songs on this week's edition of Come by the Hills which relate to the two world wars. We'll have all our usual features including a double dose of "Me Music" featuring my latest musical effort, plus a brand new single by Loreena McKennitt in honour of the hundredth anniversary of the battle of Vimy Ridge, and many more great and thought-provoking songs about what it was like to be involved in these wars.

Who! What! When! Where! Why!

Who: Steve Cutway
What: The Early Years
When: Sunday evening at 6 Eastern and Wednesday morning at 7 Eastern
Where: Mushroom FM
Why: Because the music from the 1950s and 1960s is the best music there is and it gets short shrift on terrestrial radio; but not on Mushroom FM.
The above is 279 characters so would fit the new Twitter limit. But as I point out on tonight's show, I'm not on Twitter.

The Mosen Explosion proudly cranks it all the way up to 280

Sunday Sunday, can’t fault that day, as the old song says or something. The Mosen Explosion is back with four unique hours of music and conversation.

And now, thanks to the generous engineers at Twitter, if your Twitter client has been updated to support it, you have double the expressiveness in every tweet. Imagine that! Twice the nutrients in every mouth-watering byte! So now you can let your voice be heard even more expressively just by way of a humble tweet! This is progress, but here at The Mosen Explosion, we can’t wait until the Twitter character count is set to 2TB.

Fats Domino part 2 this week on The Juke In The Back

The Juke In The Back” focuses on the “soul that came before rock n’ roll,” the records that inspired Elvis, Buddy Holly, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and countless others.
The Juke In The Back is proud to feature Fats Domino, who passed away on October 24th at the age of 89. He was one of the most influential and popular recording stars of both Rhythm & Blues and Rock n Roll music. Fats streak of hit records was nearly unbroken from 1950-1963 and he did it without changing his core sound. He just kept on playin the New Orleans boogie woogie music that he grew up with.

Monday is a Great Day on The Sara Hillis Show!

Monday Monday. Do you sometimes feel that you just can't trust that day? Well, don't worry. You can put your trust in one thing at least. I'm here again with another edition of The Sara Hillis Show. Today, we talk cover versions of songs which were more successful than their originals, we hear from all sorts of great artists and bands, and of course, I muse about strange and silly things as I always do. So, why not hang out with me at noon or midnight eastern standard time, for the anything-but-standard Sara Hillis Show, right here on Mushroom FM!

Could there possibly be a better day for a Mosen Explosion?

We are exploding you on 5 November, which in some countries is known as Guy Fawkes day. It’s full of gun powder, explosions and frightened guide dogs. So there couldn’t possibly be a better day for a Mosen Explosion. Your guide dog is safe with us, though.

On the show this week, more fun with time. If you’re in my part of the world, the show starts an hour later than before, which means we’re now up to 8 AM NZ time, 6 Am in Australia. It’s still of course at 2 PM Eastern, and back to 7 PM UK.
