This weekend, join us as we begin the History of Psychedelia

We hope you enjoyed hearing the Elvis Presley Story over the last 13 weeks.

Our rockumentaries continue this weekend with a two parter we haven't aired before.

In the History of Psychedelia, DAVID QUANTICK presents a 2-part documentary examining the changing face of psychedelic music, from the swirling shapes and sounds of the sixties to the retro-pop of the early nineties and today's eclectic dance scene.

You can hear this fascinating, and of course trippy musical history first at 2 PM Eastern on Sunday. It's repeated at 11 PM that evening.

At 2 AM and PM Eastern, join Jonathan Mosen for a tribute to Tina Turner

On Thursday at 2 AM Eastern and repeated again at 2 Pm Eastern, join me for a tribute to Tina Turner, who has died aged 83. Her influence is immense. She paved the way for women in rock and roll. She overcame adversity and abuse to blossom as a solo artist. Most of all, she contributed to the soundtrack of our lives.

Learn about her humble beginnings and the upheaval in her early life, how she met Ike, how she got the name Tina Turner, the perception that she had become a nostalgia act after the couple divorced, and her incredible ascendancy as a solo artist in the 1980s.

Coming up on Saturday at the Described Movies: Scarface and The Three Musketeers.

King Charles chooses all the music on the Coronation Eve Mosen Explosion

On Saturday, his majesty King Charles III will be crowned. Regardless of people’s opinions on the relevance of the monarchy in the 21st century, a coronation is an event most of us haven’t experienced before, with the last one having been 70 years ago.

All the music on the next Mosen Explosion has been chosen by King Charles III, taken from the official playlist of the coronation. And it’s quite an eclectic collection which may surprise you in places.

On Wednesday, the Mosen Explosion celebrates the 60th anniversary of the Beatles Please Please me album

It doesn’t seem possible, but we long ago began a series of 60th anniversary milestones for the Beatles, beginning with the 60th anniversary of the day John met Paul in July 2017.

Join Jonathan for a Mosen Explosion George Harrison birthday special

This weekend, I got access to the new Bing. So to give it a bit of a test, I asked it to write this promotional email for me. The rest of this email is written completely and without edits by Bing, powered by Chat GPT.

Are you ready for a blast of music and fun? Tune in to The Mosen Explosion on Mushroom Fm at 2 AM Eastern on Monday, and catch the repeat at 2 PM Eastern on Monday. Your host, Jonathan Mosen, will take you on a musical journey through the life and legacy of one of the greatest singers and songwriters of all time: George Harrison.

In memory of Rich Ring

Today I learned with great sadness of the death of Rich Ring, who was a former broadcaster here on Mushroom FM.

Our next rockumentary series is "The Elvis Presley Story"

After 218 episodes, we have concluded the remarkable series “The Lost Lennon Tapes”, so it’s time to use our rockumentary slot to profile another legend.

For the next 13 weeks, Mushroom Fm will be running “The Elvis Presley Story”. Presented by Wink Martindale, a broadcast legend and one of Elvis’s long-time friends. It features rare content and interviews with Elvis himself and others from his inner-circle.

Whether you’re an Elvis fan or you simply want to understand what all the fuss was about, “The Elvis Presley Story” is a must-hear.

Now's the time to request your favourite love song for the Mosen Explosion Valentine's Day special

Tuesday is Valentine’s Day, and following the success of last year’s show, I’m hosting a Valentine’s Day special for the Mosen Explosion on Mushroom FM. For this to be a special show, it relies on you.

I’m hoping you’ll not only tune in, but send me in advance a request for a love song you want me to play. It might just be a love song that appeals to you, or that brings back fond memories. Or you may want to dedicate it to someone special in your life, or someone who you wish were special in your life.

Join Jonathan Mosen as Mushroom Fm pays tribute to the legendary Burt Bacharach

Burt Bacharach was one of the most important musical figures of the 20th century. He has died of natural causes at the age of 94.

In this three hour tribute, I’ll play you many of the hits Burt Bacharach helped to write. There are so many of them that there is little time for talk. So in this case, the music does much of the talking. You may find yourself surprised by the number of hits he has had a hand in.
