4th of July Special: R&B Food Songs 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.
What’s more American than celebrating America’s birthday with some good ol’ red, white and Rhythm & Blues about THE Fourth of July staple: food? Dig in on an hour of classic R&B about hot dogs, cole slaw, potato salad, ribs and ice cream sung by Nat “King” Cole, Amos Milburn, Louis Jordan, the “5” Royales and many more. It’s the American “soul that came before rock n’ roll” on the Juke In The Back.

We've Got Artists Doing Double Duty, this Week on Come by the Hills!

Yes, it's almost time for another brand new episode of Mushroom Fm's premier Celtic Music show, known round here as Come by the Hills. This week, as well as our usual features, we'll be showing off both the vocal and instrumental talents of artists and bands from around the folk and Celtic world. It promises to be a great show as always, so I hope you'll come out and join the folk revolution!

More Summer songs this week on The Early Years!

Join me for The Early Years where you'll enjoy the best music from Rock and Roll's Golden Age (its first quarter century) with an occasional nod to other decades and genres.
June has morphed into July and we're in high Summer where I live.
Last week, I began a survey of 70s Summer songs. This week, I complete that 70s survey and return to summer songs from the 50s and early 60s. There are so many good ones!

It's a fab, telephonically enhanced, Mosen Explosion

Yet again, I’m back for another four hours of great music and conversation as we all get together for The Mosen Explosion on Mushroom FM.

If you’ve been listening to the show over the last couple of weeks, you will have heard me make mention of the fact that the provider of our listener line appears to have bitten the dust. And sure enough, ahead of last week’s show, the number stopped working, seemingly never to work again. It has ceased to be. Aw.

Fallen musical heroes, James Taylor covers, and fresh music from classic artists -- all this week on The Depths.

Over the past several weeks, the classic rock world has lost four important figures. On this week's journey through The Depths, you will hear from all of them: rare live recordings from Dr. John and Leon Redbone, as well as important tracks from Gary Duncan of Quicksilver Messenger Service, and Roky Erickson from the 13th Floor Elevators. You'll even hear a brilliant spoken word piece from Ken Nordine, who we lost earlier this year.

70s Summer songs this week on The Early Years!

Join me for The Early Years where you'll enjoy the best variety of music from Rock and Roll's Golden Age (its first quarter century) with an occasional nod to other decades and genres.
June has busted out all over, to paraphrase the song; in fact, it's almost done doing that. Summer is truly here where I live, now that school is out, even if it was out for me 47 years ago! (Is there anything else that defines summer so perfectly?)

This week on The Mosen Explosion, your memories of going online for the first time

I’m very much looking forward to being back with you live on The Mosen Explosion for another week and receiving your audio and written emails, your tweets, your phone calls and your Facebook contributions. Golly, this show is, like, so totally wired!

Yes there was once a time when our computers tended to be stand-alone, isolated things. You could copy data onto a floppy disk or print out a document, but that was about it.
