Deep Dive is happy together

This week on Deep Dive, where we focus on one artist for one hour, we spend time with a Californian rock band from the 60s, the Turtles. We know what I mean, think Eleanor is swell, and are happy together.

Join me at 4 PM Eastern Monday, 8 AM Tuesday in Eastern Australia. Or at 6 AM Wednesday Eastern, 10 PM in Australia.

Email me with your request for a band or artist, tell me your favourite songs and your memories of them. Or attach a sound recording and join me on the show.

Mushroom FM is back

Hi everyone, we're pleased to say that our streaming server provider has resolved it's issue and we're back up and running ready to entertain you. Thanks for your patience.

Mushroom FM is presently off the air, but Mushroom Escape is unaffected

Hi everyone, it's Jonathan letting you know that at present, Mushroom FM is off the air. This is due to an outage with the provider of our streaming media servers, which is the last link in the chain that sees what we broadcast making it to you.

All our own systems over which we have control are working perfectly. This means that once the issue is resolved by our streaming server provider, everything should return to normal by itself. That's good, since it's late in the evening here in New Zealand and it's time to get some rest.
