The April 18 Show

in the spirit of the idea that, part of maintining a state of good mental health in the face of stress, is to keep a sense of humor, and that a positive disposition, and a hopeful heart are keys to maintaining an effective immune system, we engage in a little tasteful corona humor this week on SnowWhiteFM.
You can take about so much dour solemnity, and apocolyptic projection, before you have just had enough, and your hopeful spirit starts to rebel.

Sara Smiles On for Today, but Off for Tomorrow

Hi there. Sara Hillis here with a heads-up regarding Sara Smiles. Today's show will be going ahead as scheduled, but I've decided to take a day off for tomorrow, as that is Holy (Good) Friday according to the Orthodox Christian calendar. You'll still get the replay of Come by the Hills, but after today's Sara Smiles, I'll be off till Monday. You'll be in great hands with the Mushroom Pot of course, and my conscience will be eased. I think it's really important to do what I can to observe Holy Friday as best as I can even if I cannot be in church to do it.

Clyde McPhatter & The Drifters this week on The Juke In The Back!

The Juke In The Back” focuses on the “soul that came before rock n’ roll,” the records that inspired Elvis, Buddy Holly, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and countless others.

Tommy Brown this week on The Juke In The Back!

The Juke In The Back” focuses on the “soul that came before rock n’ roll,” the records that inspired Elvis, Buddy Holly, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and countless others.
Tommy Brown is one of the unsung blues shouters of the Rhythm & Blues Era. His only two charting records were done with the Griffin Brothers on Dot Records in 1951. He’ll always be remembered for the #1 smash, “Weepin’ & Cryin’,” but Brown had so many tremendous records under his own name that Matt The Cat just had to feature an entire “Juke In The Back” program on Tommy Brown.

Mushroom FM's 10th birthday is coming, and you're invited to a huge party

Recent events have been yet another reminder of what a precious part so many people have allowed Mushroom Fm to play in their lives. And it all began on 25 April 2010. Those 10 years have gone fast, and Mushroom FM is sounding better than ever.

What would it all be for without the Mushroom Crowd? So you're at the centre of our celebrations.

It's a Tribute to John Prine, this Week on Come by the Hills

Steve Cutway and I are apparently on the same wavelength, but I think that's true for many music lovers around the world. When we heard the sad news of the illness, and then the death. of singer and songwriter extraordinaire John Prine due to Covid-19, we were all in shock. he was 73 years of age.

For me, John Prine was always a name. he came up again and again at folk clubs and open mics when other people would sing his songs, and every song of his I heard, I liked. Ironically, I have only heard his own voice singing his own songs in the past few days.

A tribute to John Prine and more songs about music this week on The Early Years!

After you've enjoyed The Mosen Explosion tomorrow afternoon, stay tuned for The Early Years where you'll enjoy the best music from Rock and Roll's Golden Age (its first quarter century) with an occasional nod to other decades and genres.
Of course, it's all about the music on Mushroom FM the home of the fun guys. But I'm delving a little deeper again this week with more music about music, another listener-suggested theme.

The Mosen Explosion is checking in, looking forward, looking back, geeking out

Oh my word oh my word! Another extraordinary week has come and gone. I hope you’re keeping safe and coping OK and that you’ll join me for another Mosen Explosion on Mushroom FM.

It’s incredible, but we’re only a couple of weeks away from Mushroom FM’s 10th birthday. Recent events have reminded me all over again what a special family connection we have with our audience. We’ve got some cool celebrations in store for you that we would be honoured to have you a part of. I’ll tell you about some of them on this week’s show.
