So this week, we’ll be taking you back to a Mosen Explosion from this week in August 1927. Oops, the computer is having a problem computing that, so how about we just go back to this week in 2014?

It’s all on the jolly old Mosen Explosion, 2 PM Eastern, 7 PM UK, only on the mighty Mushroom FM.

Summer songs tonight 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.
Jaw-dropping songs are on vacation until September. It's all about summer tonight as I present summer songs from the 50s and 60s. I have several version comparisons, twin spins and a triple play as part of a salute to "The California Sound".

Jonathan Mosen Goes Silent

Well, Ok, it's not actually that bad. He's still perfectly fine, and decidedly himself. But, rumor has it that the Mosen Explosion is fresh out of nuclear dynamite this week, and will be taking a well-deserved week off. That's good for him. But, it's tough for you, because you'll be missing 4 hours of quality, live programming that you are used to, as a normal part of your weekend. fortunately, you've got the Snowman Radio to fall back on.

For a couple of months 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!"

It's Another John Barleycorn Special, this Week on Come by the Hills!

Yes, this week we're pulling out all the stops on Mushroom FM's Premier Celtic Music Show, because we'll be featuring a number of different versions of a folk song, likely English in origin, which is all about the planting, harvesting and distilling of barley.

It's mostly 60s again this week as I conclude my survey of Canadian popular music that I started four weeks ago on Canada Day.

Many of these songs will be familiar and you may not realize that the artists are Canadian.
