Deep Dive pays tribute to old dogs, children and watermelon wine

The country music world lost its old storyteller this week with the passing of Tom T Hall last Friday. Deep Dive pays tribute to him in this week's show. We hear the story of the Harper Valley PTA, the views of the cowboy and the poet, all about Sneaky Snake and what I Love.

Join me at 4 PM Eastern this Monday, which is 6 AM Tuesday in Eastern Australia. Or at 6 AM Wednesday, which is 8 PM in Eastern Australia. Simply tell your SmartThing to take you to Mushroom FM, the home of the fun guys, and you will be there.

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.

Songs about the cosmos tonight on Toews On The Waves

Hi, I'm Steve Cutway, and I have the distinct pleasure of sitting in again this week for Bruce as he is unavailable through no fault of his own for reasons that are completely beyond his control. (That's his story and he's sticking to it.)

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.

1961 music continues this week on The Early Years!

Now We are Five, this Week on Come by the Hills!

Hello! Sara Hillis here to tell you what's in store on our fifth anniversary edition of Come by the Hills, Mushroom FM's premier Folk and Celtic music show! OF course, we'll be doing what we always do: playing three hours of amazing Folk and Celtic music for your listening pleasure, but I plan to make this a rather reflective show. Where have we been? Where are we going? You know, all the big questions in life. We'll also be taking some time to pay tribute to Nanci Griffith, who wrote some absolutely awesome songs and who sadly passed away last weekend.

Intermittent Mushroom Escape Outages

The Internet is a strange and not-always-wonderful thing. We here at Mushroom Escape have been blessed with rock-solid Internet access for over a decade. With that in mind, we recently, as many of you may know, changed the way we run Mushroom Escape so that it is not being completely run out of the station manager's living room using his personal Internet. It has been wonderful.
