The Festive Season is Invading the Pop Vault!

Our first full week into December and the holiday spirit is well and truly alive and well here at Mushroom FM. As part of our festive fun, Paskell's Pop Vault will be combining party tunes with a generous portion of timeless Christmas music for you to enjoy - We'll even feature this year's Mushroom FM Christmas single! It all kicks off on Monday afternoon at 12 pm Eastern, 5 PM UK time, right before this week's Documentary of the Week.

Hope to see you there!

We're keeping another festive fun guy tradition on The Mosen Explosion

The Mosen explosion is back, and it's one of my very favourite days of the year. One of the wonderful things about having Mushroom FM back on the air, is the resurrection of many wonderful Christmas traditions. One of those is of course the Mushroom FM holiday countdown, and many of you have already cast your votes, for which we are grateful. If by chance you've not voted yet, come one, come all, have your say, and be in to win $500 at http://www.mushroomfm.com/countdown2015.

It’s Christmas time in the Shed.

That’s right, all the decorations are up, and check out the huge Christmas tree in the corner!
The Shed is completely transformed for the month of December.
Because of this, all you’ll hear is Christmas music, with a few Christmas stories added in for good measure.
The doors open later tonight from 11 PM Eastern time, that’s 5 PM Sunday afternoon here in New Zealand and 4 AM Sunday morning in the UK.
No special features this month, but plenty of time to get in your Christmas requests.

The Mushroom FM Book Club is Meeting Again

Our November Mushroom FM book of the month was "the woman who stole my life" by Marian Keyes. Already, there has been some lively discussion about the book on Twitter.

But now, it's time to take that discussion into the Mushroom FM book club chat room for our official monthly meeting.

We'd love to hear what you thought of the book, and you can join in the discussion on Saturday at noon Eastern, 5 p.m. UK.

It's the Great Dictator, Exploding in The Zone

At 4 p.m. Eastern, 9 p.m. in the UK, I'm going to be in the zone again!
Unfortunately, wee Anne Cosgrove who was looking forward to being with you again after a week away, has been stricken! Stricken I tell you! She has a horrible cold, and is not fit to talk, so I'll be talking and playing music instead.

An Update from the counting room, and the Holiday Countdown Crew

Hi everyone, it's hard to believe that it's less than 48 hours since votes for the Mushroom FM Holiday Countdown went live, and I'd like to give you a quick update.

Bonair Officially Kicks Off The Holiday Season This Tuesday

If you are on my side of the globe, it’s 24 days until the big Guy comes down the chimney, and if you aren’t on my side of the globe, you have to wait an extra day—meaning I get the biggest presents. Just kidding, but we do have a present for you. Bonair officially kicks off the holiday season Tuesday from 9:00 – 11:00 p.m. EST on www.mushroomfm.com and in all your fav music apps.

It's time for a Boogie in the Pop Vault!

Greetings! The holiday partying season is almost upon us, so what better way to celebrate than to crack out a few disco classics! We'll do just that in the Pop Vault this week with a little help from Abba, Mark Ronson and Katrina & The Waves. We'll also take time to appreciate the Moulettes' latest album and perhaps speculate as to one or two of their musical influences. We may even squeeze in a festive favourite to help inspire your votes for the grand Mushroom FM Christmas Countdown! Sounds like a pretty packed hour to me.

$500 could be yours, in our 2015 holiday countdown and Christmas party. Vote now!

At Mushroom FM, we've always been full of fun at the festive season. This year, we're keeping up much cherished Mushroom FM traditions, while at the same time freshening them up with a few twists. We have plenty to unveil over the next little while, but today we're proud to announce our 2015 holiday countdown.

Listeners who've been part of the Mushroom Crowd for a while will remember that we launched this countdown tradition in 2011. In 2012, we improved on it even further. And this year, it's a spectacular.

It’s almost that time already?

The Shed is opening up again in less than an hour!
That’s right, tonight at 11 Pm Eastern, that’s 5 PM Sunday in New Zealand, and 4 AM in the UK, I’ll be back. What a scary thought.
I’ll be back to talk about my week, play a triple threat, and another live and loud segment, and of course your requests are welcome.
