Deep Dive Christmas day and summer shows

Deep Dive will be popping into your ears for Christmas. We have a special Christmas show for you for two hours, playing at 8 PM Eastern on Christmas eve, and at midday on Christmas day in Australia. It comes from Australia, and it is all about Australia, so for those of you in the northern hemisphere enjoy a little Australian Christmas warmth.

Just say Merry Christmas to your SmartSpeaker, and then ask it to play Mushroom FM and you will be there faster than Santa's sleigh

Relive our holiday countdown on Mushroom FM, and for the first time, Apple Music and Spotify

On behalf of the fun guys at Mushroom FM, thanks to everyone whose votes put the top 100 together, and who made our party so special through their participation.

There were some firsts about this year's countdown. It was the first on a Saturday, the first to start at 7 AM Eastern, and most significant of all, the first on Mastodon which turned out to be a huge success.

Deep Dive celebrates Christmas

This week on Deep Dive we are changing our format in celebration of Christmas. We enjoy a range of artists, pretty much all Australian, sharing their views of Christmas. The Sunny Cowgirls make several appearances, as do Olivia Newton-John, who sadly died this year, and Bucho and Champs. It's a delightful hour of Christmas merriment Aussie style.

It's a Ghost of December Past, this Tuesday on Come by the Hills!

Hello! Sara Hillis here just checking in to let you know that there *will* be a Come by the Hills show on Tuesday at the usual replay time of 5:00 AM Eastern, despite the fact that it was preempted in its original time-slot on Saturday by the amazing and fantabulous Mushroom FM Holiday Countdown! I've got an encore presentation from December 18, 2021 for you. It took place on the eve of last year's countdown, so you'll hear references to that, and you'll hear lots of songs about winter. some of the promos will be a bit off, but I hope you'll enjoy it.

At 7 AM Eastern, we're live with the top 100 songs you voted for and a virtual party too. The Seating Plan is available now

You’ve made the list, we have of course checked it twice. We are ready to play the top 100 holiday songs of all time as determined by the Mushroom Crowd in 2022. Fun guy Damo McMorrow begins the festive fun at 7 AM Eastern, noon in the UK. We’ve heard that some people for whom it’s a bit early are even setting alarms and we really appreciate that. One listener told us today that this has now become a part of their holiday tradition. That’s an honour.

Winter songs and a musical birthday present this week on the Early Years!

After you've enjoyed Mushroom FM's annual holiday countdown, tomorrow morning from 07:00 AM to 05:00 PM tomorrow afternoon, don't touch that dial, device, PC, Mac or smart speaker and join me for The Early Years, where and when you'll hear the best music from Rock and Roll's Golden Age (its first quarter century) with an occasional nod to other decades and genres.
Winter begins next Wednesday, the day it so happens that The Early Years replays on Mushroom FM. To honour the season, I'll play winter songs in hour 1.

Coming up on Saturday at the Described Movies: The Polar Express, The Santa Clause, and The Story of Santa Claus.

Only on Mushroom escape:
From this Saturday at 12am Eastern, that’s 6pm Saturday in NZ, 4pm in Sydney and 5am in the UK, and repeated every four hours throughout the day, it’s the described movies The Polar Express from 2004, The Santa Clause from 1994, and the Story of Santa Claus from 1996.

It's the final countdown to the Countdown. Voting closes today! Vote and score an invitation to our party

Voting is closing at 11:59 PM Eastern time tonight for our holiday countdown. Every year, we get frantic messages from a listener or two who forgot to vote and really really really wants to. Unfortunately, we can't make exceptions. Once the votes are closed, they are closed. The reason for this is that once listeners have built the chart, work begins immediately on putting the countdown together, so it's ready to go live at 7 AM Eastern this Saturday.

R&B Christmas, Part 1 this week on The Juke In The Back!

The "Juke In The Back" focuses on the " soul that came before rock n' roll," the records that inspired Elvis, Buddy Holly, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and countless others.

The countdown to the countdown. This year, our Christmas party is happening on Mastodon. Here's how it works

There’s still time to vote in Mushroom FM’s holiday countdown and to receive an invitation to our Christmas party. But time is running out rapidly with votes closing this Thursday at 11:59 PM North American Eastern Time.
