A brief visit to Altamont, and so much more, tonight on The Depths.

Greetings fellow music travelers,

Tonight, as we twist and turn our way through the depths of classic rock, we'll detour into some classic jazz, blues, and even a little funk. Yes indeed, the Little River Band will exist along side Elmore James, the Knack, cannonball Adderley, and the Marshall Tucker Band just to name a few.

In the third hour, we will turn the clock back 50 years, and play some rare audio from the day after the disastrous Altamont Festival that may show that more people were at fault for provoking the violence besides just the Hell's Angels.

"Seconds" continues this week on The Early Years!

After you've enjoyed The Mosen Explosion with its tech talk and Christmas things, don't touch that virtual dial and join me for The Early Years where you'll hear the best music from Rock and Roll's Golden Age (its first quarter century) with an occasional nod to other decades and genres and no Christmas music!

Coming up on Saturday at the Described Movies: Arthur Christmas

From this Saturday at 2am Eastern, that’s 8pm Saturday in NZ, 6pm in Sydney and 7am in the UK, and repeated every four hours throughout the day , it’s the described movie Arthur Christmas from 2011.

Four Festive Fun hours on the Mosen Explosion

There’s no doubt we’re well into the season now. Fa la la la la la la la la la la la la la. So what better way to feel the festive spirit than donning that gay apparel, being sure you’ve voted in the Mushroom FM Christmas countdown for 2019, and joining me for another four hours of great conversation and music on The Mosen Explosion.

I’ll be playing plenty of festive favourites and telling you about a few technology adventures I’ve had this week. There are plenty of listener contributions and questions already.

Folky Fabulousness is Back Again, this Week on Come by the Hills!

Yes, once again this sunday, Mushroom FM's Four Decades format will be invaded by those crazy folk-fiends as I bring you three hours of great Celtic and Folk music on Come by the Hills! We'll have some new music from me, some more of our festive repertoire, and of course the general merriment that goes along with the best virtual kitchen party on the planet, or well, at least on Mushroom FM. The show won't be live this week as I'm otherwise engaged that night, but it will be new and it will be fun.

It's back! Mushroom Fm is again counting down the top 100 holiday songs as voted for by you

The holidays are all about traditions and rituals. Turkey, mistletoe, Santa and more. And we're proud that Mushroom FM has become part of a tradition that's now looked forward to by many. The Mushroom FM Holiday Countdown and Christmas party is back yet again for 2019, where we're making a list, checking it twice, and presenting a 10-hour extravaganza of the top 100 holiday songs as determined by our listeners.

Will 2018's number one Christmas song, "A Maori Christmas", reign supreme once again? Or will there be a new Christmas number one to knock Billy T. James off his perch?

Live music comes out to play tonight on The Depths.

Greetings fellow music travelers.

On this holiday weekend in the US, come away with me to an imaginary stage where all kinds of different artists, from The Beatles to Otis Redding, from King Crimson to Earth, Wind and Fire, all come together to play a four-hour live concert.

It's a show you can enjoy with family and friends, or simply by yourself with a pair of headphones. the first band takes the imaginary stage promptly at 11:00 PM eastern, 8:00 PM Pacific, immediately following the Snowman. You can hear the show again on Wednesday at 4:00 PM Eastern.

"Seconds" continues this week on The Early Years!

After you've enjoyed The Mosen Explosion, don't touch that virtual dial and join me for The Early Years where you'll hear the best music from Rock and Roll's Golden Age (its first quarter century) with an occasional nod to other decades and genres.
This week, it's part 5 of my listener-suggested theme begun four weeks ago, "Seconds". If an artist's first song reached #1, what did their second song do? As you'll hear, some did well and others didn't and you may hear some songs you haven't heard in a long time if ever.
