Welcome to Viva - the classical selection on MushroomFM

Hi, I'm Mara Kelland, host of Viva, the classical selection on MushroomFM. [formerly host of The Land Sings]. In this new show we take a look at the old masters of Western Classical music from the Renaissance right up to now.
And it’s always on Thursday at 12pm ET [6pm Friday in new Zealand.]

About Me
