It's a giant edition of Small World coming up throughout Sunday on Mushroom Escape

On Mushroom Escape on Sunday starting at Midnight Eastern and repeated at 4, 8, 12, 4 and 8, I’m back with a fresh edition of Small World, the kids’ programme for the whole family. And oh my word, what a giant edition we have for you this week. We have giants that are selfish, giants that aren’t very smart, and of course if we’re going to be telling giant stories, well we have to tell the story about the giant at the top of that bean stalk!

Not all four-legged animals are our friends, but this week we’ll feature some that are. Can you guess which ones you’ll hear about?

The top 100 of 1961 continues this week on The Early Years!

A single year is represented this week, 1961, as I continue the countdown of the top 100 from that year compiled by Billboard magazine. I'll pick up where I left off last week at #74 and continue to #46.

Some schedule changes coming to Mushroom FM

In days of yore, Come By the Hills used to air on Sunday nights. For this reason, we didn't air the first edition of Sara Smiles at midnight going into Monday morning. Now that you can hear Come By the Hills on Saturday afternoons in its new time slot, we have the chance to make Sara's show consistent with the rest of our shows that air every week day, where you hear it first in the AM Eastern time, with a chance to catch it again on the PM.

No Treasure Island Oldies this week

This week on Deep Dive we enjoy the fantastic sound of long-running band Chicago. We learn what happens at twenty-five or six to four, ask if anybody really knows what time it is, and discover hard habbits to break.

Join me for this show 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 SmartThing to play Mushroom FM and it will whisk you there in a trice.
