The Mosen Explosion is back every week day

Outside, a storm is coming, the wind is blowing, and it seems like the perfect time to return from a long relaxing summer break.

Still going strong after over 20 years, The Mosen Explosion is back with you exclusively on Mushroom FM with me, Jonathan Mosen, every week day. You have two opportunities to hear it, first at 2 AM North American Eastern time, and repeated 12 hours later, 2 PM Eastern. That works out at 7 UK, and presently 8 in New Zealand.

A truncated Treasure island Oldies today

Unfortunately we have not been provided with a complete copy of Treasure Island Oldies.

The show will run today for around 2.5 hours. We will strive to have the complete show in time for the replay.

At 2 AM and PM Eastern on Monday, Jonathan Mosen pays tribute to Gerry Marsden

It's Jonathan here, taking a break from my holiday to pay a special tribute to Gerry Marsden, founder and leader of Gerry and the Pacemakers, who has died of a heart infection in Liverpool aged 78.

Gerry and the Pacemakers, for a brief period, were a hugely successful band, riding in on the coat tails of the Beatles and playing a key role in the Mersey sound. They were also the first group in UK chart history to have their first three singles reach number one.

The tradition continues. Join us virtually at Mosen Towers for one of the first new year's parties in the world

There may come a time when we’ll be sitting in our rocking chairs, boring our grandchildren senseless about the tough times of 2020 and how young people today don’t know what hard times are. But right now, 2020 is our reality and it’s been incredibly challenging for many. This year is also a special one because it heralds the end of a decade and the start of a new one with all its promise and uncertainty.

The fun guys are going to make this a merry Christmas

Christmas is a joyous time for many. We gather with friends and family, eat plenty, and value those we have in our lives. Even in regular years, Christmas can be a difficult time for some due to temporary or permanent separation from people who are special. And this is no ordinary year. In many parts of the world, Christmas will be a very different, quieter occasion.

Our holiday countdown and Christmas party is coming up. Here's what you need to know

First, we send our best wishes to those in areas where COVID-19 is causing this Christmas to be like no other in living memory. We are grateful that Mushroom FM is still able to play a role. A virtual get-together such as a Mushroom FM special event is ideal for times such as these.

If you didn't vote in our countdown but would like to join in the virtual party, it's not too late and you'd be very welcome. The fun guys will be able to register you during the event and assign you to a table.

Don't delay! Time's almost up for you to vote for your favourite holiday songs. Here's some background to our big event

There's not long left now. You have until midnight US Eastern time this Friday to cast your votes in Mushroom FM’s holiday countdown and receive an invitation to our Christmas party
where we play the top 100 on Sunday beginning at 9 AM Eastern, 2 PM UK. Have you voted? Have all your family and friends voted? If you answered no to either of those questions, then you have important work to do!

The next Mosen Explosion pays tribute to Charley Pride

Every week day, we explode for you on Mushroom FM at 2 AM North American Eastern time, repeated all over again, because that's really the only way to repeat something right, at 2 PM North American Eastern time. That's 7 AM and PM in the UK.

Coming up, as this decade draws to a close, the last Mosen At Large of the decade. let's recap

It’s been a long, strange, very difficult year for many, and it also marks the end of this decade. So what an opportunity on the last Mosen At Large show on Mushroom FM for the decade to reflect on all that has happened during the last decade, particularly in the technology arena.

Remembering John Lennon, for the full 24 hours of Tuesday 8 December

On Tuesday 8 December, it will be the 40th anniversary of John Lennon's assassination. Mushroom Fm will be devoting 24 hours of programming to commemorate one of the most important losses in music of the 20th century. And when we're talking John Lennon, we're talking about much more than an extraordinarily gifted singer/songwriter. Thought leader, political activist, trend setter, peace maker, poet, visual artist.
