Snowman Turns 65

The Snowman turns 65 on Sunday, and who knows what that might mean. There's a small party on the air Saturday evening at 8:00 eastern standard. . There'll be guests, and probably cookies and broccoli. So, it's okay for you to come and join in the frivalities. the food is free.

Let's Settle It on the Air

Each year in northern Europe 6 nations get together in the spirit of sporting friendship and proceed to knock seven bells out of each other over the course of several weekends. The sport in question is the noble game of rugby union and let’s face it nobody including the referee actually understands the rules - I’m sure they just make it up as they’re going along!!!

We're Going Welsh this Week on Come by the Hills!

It was St. David's Day on March 1, Wales's day to revel in its culture and to generally have a great time being Welsh. So, who are we to ignore this fact at Come by the Hills? Well, we, in fact, is me, and since I didn't ignore it, that means that you will be treated to three hours of absolutely awesome music from Wales and mostly in the Welsh language, or, yn Cymraeg. You will also be treated to my attempts to explain at least some of the songs and to pronounce their artists and titles correctly while using a thoroughly Amaerican screen-reader to read them.

A Happier, Kinder, Gentler Snowman Radio

I have decided that serious commentary on provocative subjects such as politics and culture, detracts from the overall happy groove of my show. So, that content will be absent from future programs, making them more consistent with the overall Mushroom format. Such content, if any is created, might be podcasted to interested parties, and only mentioned very briefly in the main show, just to give non-subscribers a chance to nip in if they want. . That will free up the main program to be more light hearted, and happy, not dark and depressing. And I like that.

Join the sudsy silliness that is the Mushroom Cap Lounge!

Join Jeff Molzow and Don Delorme as they open the doors and put the saw dust down, for the general whackyness that is the Mushroom Cap Lounge tonight from 8 to 11. During our first hour, we’ll discover self defense for cows and a transit system that understands the need for luxury for at least some of its facilities. During the second hour we’ll find out some little trivial facts about March that you may not be aware of and a very unusual way to dry your laundry. Finally, during our third hour, we’ll be counting down the top 15 songs from 1974.
