Catchy Classics Combine in this week's Pop Vault!

Hi Everyone. This is Darren, writing amidst a mammoth clear-up operation which is well underway on board the decommissioned Mushroom Flyer. Speaking as one who makes a living from the catering industry, I have seldom observed such signs as these which point toward a party having happened of legendary proportions.

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.
