The Mosen Explosion. I write the songs that make the whole world...switch off

Looks like we made it to another Mosen Explosion. I haven’t been alive forever, but Barry Manilow’s closer to it than me because he is blowing out 72 candles today. That’s why he’s our featured artist on this week’s jolly old Mosen Explosion.

For a while there, and perhaps even now, it was trendy to hate on Barry Manilow, and I never figured out why that was. He’s a great pianist, vocalist and performer, and I’ll be delighted to play any Barry requests you may have.

Jaw-dropping songs this week on The Early Years

Join me for The Early Years where you'll enjoy the best variety of music from the 50s and 60s with an occasional nod to other decades, including music from before the rock era which is generally accepted as starting in 1955.
For several weeks now, I've been talking about jaw-dropping songs. What are jaw-dropping songs? As defined by a regular listener, jaw-dropping songs are songs that made you stop and listen the first time you heard them, whether you ultimately liked them or not; or songs that made you say, "what the frig!"

Mushroom Escape, our Old-time Radio Channel, now working again on TuneIn

Yesterday, we were proud to relaunch Mushroom Escape, our old-time radio channel.

We're pleased to say that TuneIn has now updated its database. This means you can find Mushroom Escape in the free TuneIn apps for iOS and Android, and in many places like Alexa, Google Assistant and Sonos.

Enjoy the pictures that only the theatre of the mind can provide, on Mushroom Escape.

The Return of Mushroom Escape

Many of you will remember, back in the days of Mushroom FM 1.0, a sister station which we had called Mushroom Escape, playing a variety of old-time radio.

Mushroom Escape is, as of right now, back on the air! Bruce Toews has spent a great deal of time over the last few months planning the revived station, learning a new automation system, and implementing it all, and he is sure you will enjoy the new station.

We have more of a variety than ever this time around - everything from Christian to comedy, mystery to quiz shows, theatre, science fiction, and a whole lot more.
