At 2 AM and 2 Pm Eastern, Mushroom FM brings you a two-hour tribute to Olivia Newton-John

It's Jonathan Mosen here to tell you about a special show coming up on Mushroom FM.

Olivia Newton-John's music was a significant part of the soundtrack of our lives in the 1970s and 1980s. Following her death at 73, I've put together a two-hour tribute to her. You'll learn a bit about her background, and we'll feature all her greatest hits, as well as some rare early recordings.

Join me at 2 AM Eastern on Tuesday, repeated at 2 PM on Tuesday, as we celebrate the memorable music of this remarkable woman.

Deep Dive celebrates the life of Judith Durham

This week on Deep Dive we celebrate the music of Judith Durham, who died last Friday. Inevitably the programme consists of music from The Seekers. We ask when will the good apples fall, sing about Georgie Girl, and go on a morning town ride.

Tune in at 4 PM Eastern Monday, which is 6 AM Tuesday in Eastern Australia. Or at 6 AM Eastern Wednesday, which is 8 PM in Eastern Australia. Just ask your SmartSpeaker to play Mushroom FM, and it will whisk you there in a trice.

Changes to this Monday's schedule. An extended Mosen Explosion, and Treasure Island Oldies takes a break

As we know, it is an era of sickness, pestilence, high inflation, and soup. As a result, both Sara and Gary aren't able to be on the air today. Jonathan Mosen will be here from midnight to 4 AM, repeated from midday to 4 PM, with an extended edition of the Mosen Explosion.

Songs about pleasant places this week on The Early Years!

After you've enjoyed Come By The Hills with Sara Hillis (a replay of her April 2nd show due to COVID - get better soon), tomorrow afternoon from 02:00 to 05:00, don't touch that dial, device, PC, Mac or smart speaker and join me for The Early Years, where and when 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.

It's Another Encore Presentation, this Week on Come by the Hills!

Hello hello! Sara Hillis here with sad news to report, I won't be doing a new episode of Come by the Hills this weekend. I have caught Covid somehow, and it's messing with my energy levels and my voice. So, I've pulled a show from our archives from April 2 of this year. I'll also keep you posted as to Sara Smiles as Monday gets closer.

I'm doing alright, but hour to hour it's hard to know how I'm going to feel just now. So, thanks for your indulgence, and I hope not to be away too long.
