Breaker, breaker! It's Bonair hauling a big load of tunes about trucks and truckdrivers

Breaker breaker! This is Bonair hauling a big load of tunes about trucks and truck drivers. Copy that? My 20 is mushroomfm.com and all your fav music apps. My 50 is 9:00 p.m. EST on Tuesday. This week we are celebrating the men and women on the move—keeping us supplied with everything from groceries to iPhones, and of course, the big rigs they drive. We will pop into the truck stop kitchen for another “Food for Thought: and check in on the Fun Guys book club.

Paskell's Pop Vault has a few more Sweet Treats.

Hi Everyone.

This afternoon at 12 Noon Eastern, 5 PM in the UK, we'll be breaking open Paskell's Pop Vault for a fresh hour of sweet discovery.

Chuck in the Mosen Explosion

No particular place to go this weekend? Well, why not head over to Mushroom FM, where entertainment is always on. John Lennon once famously said, "if you were going to give rock and roll another name, you might call it Chuck Berry". Chuck Berry fused the critical elements of rhythm and blues and country to be one of the instrumental figures in the creation of rock and roll. Proving that age catches up with all of us if we live long enough, Sunday is Chuck Berry's 89th birthday.

Come join the pre-party in the shed

On the 19th of October, a long, time ago, in a hospital far, far, away:
A little baby boy was born.
This very small and cute baby, grew and grew, very slowly, and even had people worried, until one day he started growing at an alarming rate!
So much so, he’s now banished to the shed every Saturday night from 11 Pm Eastern, that’s 4 AM Sunday morning in the UK, and 4 Pm Sunday afternoon in New Zealand.
This once cute baby, is now a man, although cute isn’t perhaps the word I’d use to describe him...

Attention passengers! Bonair flight 9:00 - 11:00 has been canceled this week!

Attention passengers! Bonair is grounded this week. Hello my lovely listeners. Due to the plague that has beset Mosen Towers, I am sadly having to cancel this week’s show to get some rest. No worries, I will be back next Tuesday, fresh as a daisy, from 9:00 – 11:00 p.m. EST with two hours of tunes, another “Food for Thought” and lots of chatter. Hope all are enjoying this month’s book club selection.

What's about to be discovered in Paskell's Pop Vault? Find out this afternoon from 12 PM Eastern, 5 PM UK.

Hi Everyone. In the midst of chaos and confusion and the occasional ceiling vault (thankfully a most unusual occurrence), the Pop Vault can always throw up more than enough pleasant surprises for a cheery hour. Join me from 12 pm Eastern, 5 pm UK, right before the first in our new series of Mushroom FM documentaries, exploring the early years of Elvis Presley.

Things are heating up in the shed.

What a week it’s been. Lovely and warm for pretty must all of New Zealand, and it’s still only spring.
Bring on summer, I say.
Do you have a favourite season? If so why?
I can’t promise the Air conditioning will behave itself when the Shed opens again this Saturday from 11 PM Eastern.
That’s 4 AM Sunday morning in the UK, and 4 PM Sunday afternoon in good old New Zealand.
However, I can promise another Triple Threat, and the Live and Loud segment.
Not to forget, the music will be all over the place like usual.

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.

Announcing the MushroomFM Book Club

Love to read? Always wanted to be a part of a book club, but never had the time, or the club you joined was one of those—you know, Ivy Leaguers in tweed with their whiskey and cigars? Well, the fun guys at mushroomfm understand your dilemma and are launching the Fun Guys virtual book club. Coordinated by Brian Dalton and Bonnie Mosen, each month a presenter or listener will select a book which represents the diverse taste of Mushroom FM’s listeners and presenters. We'll let people know the name of each month's book via the usual Mushroom FM announcement channels.
