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 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.

A big unveiling, and Rubber Soul. It's the Mosen Explosion

Oh boy! I am looking forward to getting behind that microphone this week. But I look forward to getting behind that microphone every week. This week though, we have plenty of awesomeness on the show. First of all, Mushroom FM's first big event since our return will be unveiled. And it's a really good one. It could totally change your Christmas for the better.

In for the Zone, it's Jonnie and Bonathan, and I've waited long enough

Every year on Mushroom FM, the perennial question comes up. When shall we start playing Christmas music? When?
