Commemorating a 35th anniversary on this week's Mosen Explosion

First of all, a quick song for out times…”Take, me out to the ball, game, take, me out to the crowd…”. Oh, wait, wrong ball game. I dunno what to sing for the soup bowl actually.

Never mind, The Mosen Explosion inexorably rolls on for another week. Sadly, on 4 February 1983, Karen Carpenter died aged just 32.

The Old Snowman Radio Broadcast is being rePlayed

Back in 1999, some friends were starting an internet radio station, and they needed content. So, the Snowman, host of SnowWhiteFM here on the Mushroom, created a pre-recorded talk show to help fill the void. While exampels of the Snowman's production are plentiful throughout, the show was almost exclusively talk. But, it steared clear of divisive subjects like politics and religion. All voices heard during the show are that of the Snowman, including some very lively and animated exchanges.

Are you sitting comfortably?

Would you like to hear a story?

Are you sitting comfortably?

Then I’ll begin.

Once upon a time there was a little Irish girl who spent all her days chasing leprechauns. But wanting to do so much more.

Meanwhile at around the same time in Scotland only a few years, well decades earlier, a little boy grew up and all he did all day was to chase haggis.

But he too had dreams.
