Sunday is Small World day, only on Mushroom Escape. Here's what's in store

It’s Jonathan Mosen back with another edition of Small World, the kids’ programme for the whole family. And what an adventure-filled programme we have for you this week.

FAB! The Thunderbirds are taking us on another adventure. Art Gilmore is back, this time to tell us a very ancient story. If you’re very good and eat all your vegetables, I might just take you to the zoo and introduce you to some animals.

Another two hours of kids' stories and songs this Sunday on Small World, only on Mushroom Escape

It’s Jonathan Mosen back with another edition of Small World, the kids’ programme for the whole family. It’s a wonderful world where the bad people always lose in the end, and there are stories and songs that transport you to wonderful places and make you smile.

This week, we’ll have a few songs and a story from max Cryer, a famous New Zealand entertainer and producer who died recently. If you’re in New Zealand where Small World has been on the radio since the 1970s, you’ll certainly be familiar with his work. We hope the rest of the world enjoys hearing him too.

Voulez Vous join Sara and Jonathan for the big ABBA reveal at noon Eastern?

I have a dream that one day there’ll be new ABBA music, and the dream is nearly a reality.

Mama mia! Can you wait hasta Mañana? Knowing me, knowing you the way old friends do, when all is said and done, you may be just a little bit excited about the fact that we’re finally on the verge of getting new ABBA music. Does your mother know that it’s the first new ABBA music in almost 40 years?

Only on Mushroom Escape, it's a fresh edition of Small World this Sunday

It’s Jonathan Mosen back with a fresh edition of Small World this week, the kids’ show for the whole family. Since it’s you, and I know you’ve been very good this week, I’ll give you a few clues about what goodies I have coming up.

We’re going to begin by going into space. Golly! And we’re in some very good company while we’re up there.

Can you talk like a pirate? Ar’r’r’r’r’r!. Don’t worry if you can’t, because you can still listen to a classic story that’s got pirates in it! Shiver me timbers!

The Mosen Explosion has a special tribute to Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts

It’s been a rough week for fans of the kind of music we play on Mushroom FM. The tributes I put together for artists are rare, but for the third consecutive day, I am pre-empting the usual Mosen Explosion format to pay tribute to another influential musician who has just died, Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts.

Obviously there is a huge amount of music to choose from, and I’ll be telling you a bit about Charlie Watts, how he ended up being one of the longest serving members of the Stones, and what he collected that he couldn’t use.

Paying tribute to Don Everly on the next Mosen Explosion

Once again I am pre-empting the usual Mosen Explosion format to pay a special tribute.

Paying tribute to legendary singer/songwriter Tom T. Hall on the next Mosen Explosion

Every week day at 2 AM North American Eastern time, repeated 12 hours later at 2 PM Eastern, the Mosen Explosion is on Mushroom FM bringing you an eclectic mix of music, today in history, wacky news and listener requests.

But the next show is a bit different as we pay tribute to country artist Tom T. Hall, who died recently aged 85. Tom T. Hall wrote, and mostly sang for himself, a string of hits. I’ll tell you a bit about him as well as play just a few of his best over the course of an hour.

This week, we're taking a trip all the way back to last week on Small World

Last week, we had a few technicals on Mushroom Escape during some of the most popular Small World listening times. They tried to explain it to me, and I think it’s something to do with the doodacky not properly working with the thingamabob widget on the whatchamacallit. Some people who were looking forward to the stories we were playing didn’t get to hear the whole show in full. Which made them sad. We don’t like that, so this week we will be taking a trip back in time all the way to last week in case you couldn’t hear the episode.

Coming up on Small World for 15 August, only on Mushroom Escape

It will soon be time to sit back, relax and enjoy two wonderful hours of the theatre of the mind at its best. It’s kids’ songs and stories on Small World, the kids’ programme for the whole family.

Have you heard of a churkendoose? You haven’t? Well, it is really complicated to create one, that I can tell you. All will be revealed this week.

If you miss the audio described movie version or just love the story so much you’d like to hear a radio adaptation, we’re going 20,000 leagues under the sea. 20,000? Jiminy Cricket! That’s a lotta leagues!

New shows coming to Mushroom FM

As you will have heard from Geno, Time Tunnel Tunes has ended its present series as Geno and Ash prepare for their wedding. All of us at Mushroom Fm wish them both a happy life together and we hope to have Geno back in the near future.

We have a couple of great new shows in our line-up to tell you about.
