A New Feature in Only the 80s on Saturday!

Hello Listeners

I would love it if you could join me, Anne Cosgrove on Saturday at 4 pm eastern, 9 pm in the UK for Only the 80s on

All the usual features will be there for you to enjoy, these include:

Back Of The Box: Rare 78rpm Shellac 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.

The Smorgasbord says "Happy birthday Ringo"

I'm Jonathan Mosen, and every week day, I'm playing a wide variety of tunes, and chatting about this and that, at 3 AM Eastern time, that's 8 AM in the UK.
My Friday show is a special one, because it's Ringo Starr's birthday. He's turning 77 on 07/07. Golly!
So the smorgasbord is completely dedicated to Ringo, featuring music from him with the Beatles and on his own.
So celebrate with Ringo and me on the Smorgasbord, only on Mushroom FM.

We’re going all 90’s in The Shed this Saturday night!

Were you a teenager like me, in the 1990’s?
Were you a child in the 1990’s that danced and sung to groups like the Spice Girls?
Did you have a group of friends, and you’d quietly sing songs in the style of Boys to men?
Perhaps you were in your 20’s or older, but loved the music for its variety such as trip-hop or grunge to name a couple?

A Cuppa at the Mosens, an open forum and better ways to contribute

With our listeners in the northern hemisphere well into holiday mode, we’re having a relaxed open forum where you can chat about anything on A Cuppa at the Mosens this week. We’d love to hear from you, with our clearer, easier ways to contribute.

We’ve evaluated the show from a technical perspective and are making changes that will make it even easier to call in, and the audio quality much better for more callers.

It's all about summer again this week on The Early Years

When you hear the final notes of Mark Wilson's piano stylings ending today's special edition of The Mosen Explosion, stay tuned for The Early Years on Mushroom FM, the home of the fun guys.
Hello, I'm Steve Cutway. It's all about summer again this week as I continue my survey of summer songs from the 50s and 60s begun last week. This week, it's songs from the 60s. I have version comparisons and a "60s flip". Next week, I'll finish my survey of summer songs including your requests if you have any.

It's Maple Syrup Music this Week on Come by the Hills, Eh?

Yes, July 1 is Canada Day, and it's the 150th anniversary of confederation to boot, so we'll be going all Canadian on Come by the Hills. We have a fine Stan Rogers song in "Celtic Covers," a couple of segments on some great Canadian bands who sing about Canadian things, some great Quebecois music in "Fiddlin' Around," and a lot of obscure and interesting Canadian folk songs for you to enjoy.

Celebration and live music. It's a special Mosen Explosion

We certainly have plenty to celebrate on this week’s Mosen Explosion. In case you haven’t heard yet, the America’s Cup is once again New Zealand’s cup, and we’ve been in celebration mode all week. It’s hard to believe we thrashed Oracle Team USA by a comprehensive 7 races to 1, which was in reality eight races to one.

Only the 80s is Live Very Soon!

Hello Listeners

I would love it if you could join me, Anne Cosgrove very soon on for Only the 80s at 4 pm eastern, that’s 9 pm in the UK only on,

Yes, I realise, I am rather late in sending out this blog post and most of you are probably wondering how the Phil Collins gig went last Sunday. Don’t worry; I will be here to tell you all about it at 4 pm eastern, 9 pm in the UK. I will sum up the gig now though in just one word … amazing!

It’s a New Zealand Celebration in The Shed.

On Monday, 26 June, Team New Zealand, despite so many things working against them, lifted the Old Mug yet again!
The America’s Cup, is once again New Zealand’s cup!
It was actually very early on Tuesday morning here in New Zealand when it took place. I was watching from a motel room away for work.
I remember the celebrations back in 1995 when New Zealand won it for the first time, and then retained it back in 2000.
I also remember the heart break before 1995, and the choke on the water back in 2013, and 2003, 2007 and so on...
But, not, this time!
