Funny voice dictation errors, A WWDC recap and plenty of great music on The Mosen explosion, Saturday at 2 PM Eastern

After last week, I wrote to Mushroom FM management asking if I did well enough to be allowed back on at 2 PM US Eastern time, 7 PM UK on Saturday. That’s bright and early at 6 AM on a Sunday morning in New Zealand.

Mushroom FM management wrote back and said I was marginally, but only marginally, better than dead air and that I may as well have another show. This puts a new take on the old song, “I’m going to sit right down and write myself a letter”.

Same Silly Soup, summarily sequestered to Saturdays. The Mosen Explosion is baaaaaaaack!

Hello! Yeah, it’s been a while. … Not much, how about you?

The Mosen Explosion returns invigorated, emboldened with new electronic ears, and now on Saturdays at 2 Pm US Eastern time, 7 PM in the UK. Our new time means we’re on Sunday mornings in New Zealand and Australia, which means that our antipodean listeners can relax and unwind while the show is on.

From this weekend, some Mushroom Fm weekend shows are changing days

Starting this weekend, we’re making some changes to the weekend line-up here at Mushroom FM. We’ve been telling you about these changes for around a month now, but just in case you’ve missed them, let’s explain this here so you don’t miss a moment of your favourite shows.

The quickest way to describe what we’re doing is that we’re completely swapping the programming between 2 PM Eastern and 8 PM Eastern on Saturdays and Sundays.

It's the end of an era, the final Mosen Explosion Sunday show

When you were a kid, did you ever demand something of one of your parents, only to be told by the frustrated parental unit to hold on because they couldn’t be in two places at once?

It's a special celebration as we explode into decrepitude

Friends and family from around the country are already arriving here at Mosen Towers as I prepare to celebrate the big 5 o. The big day is actually 24 April, but the party is this weekend.

Over the last 20 years in particular, I’ve had the pleasure to occupy roles that have seen me work with and provide services to people from around the world. So when we were planning these celebrations, we wanted to find a way to include those who’d like to be a part of them but couldn’t attend in person, much like Bonnie and I streamed our wedding online.

The Mosen Explosion pays tribute to Sir George martin

At the time I’m usually on the air, I’ll be in the air, heading back from the Blind Citizens Australia convention. That means it’s time to delve into the humungonormous Mosen Explosion archives for a replay of a popular show.

This time, a few listeners have requested to hear again the documentary I put together on the legendary music producer Sir George Martin. It was first aired just after his death in March 2016.

The Mosen Explosion, back live this week, complete with talkative banana

I’m back in New Zealand for a short time before my next overseas trip, long enough to bring you another live edition of the Mosen Explosion on Mushroom FM.

This week, it's a Mosen Explosion St Patrick's day retrospective

First, while I’m having a wonderful time here in Anaheim, my heart goes out to the families of all victims of the terror attack in New Zealand. I cannot believe I am writing terror attack and New Zealand in the same sentence. Love and thoughts to all back home who are struggling at this difficult time.

After a day and a half at Disneyland with Nicola banana, we're off to Universal Studios at the time the Mosen Explosion airs. But fear not, there will still be a show to be sure to be sure. It's St Patrick's day, so it's time for a Mosen Explosion retrospective.

On the Mosen Explosion, Michael Jackson, should he stay or should he go?

The Mosen Explosion is back at 2 Pm Eastern Daylight time, which could mean that it starts an hour earlier for you if you live elsewhere. It certainly starts an hour earlier for me, and I had better remember that.

It’s the last live Mosen Explosion for a couple of weeks. Next week at Mosen Explosion time, I’ll be doing something Harry Pottery at Universal Studios with Nicola banana, so we’ll be going back into the archives for a St Patrick’s day special at that time.

Attention! The clocks spring forward tomorrow in our official time zone

Mushroom FM keeps US Eastern time as our official time zone. Tomorrow, March 10, the clocks spring forward.

If you are in North America and your clocks also spring forward, the only impact this change will have on you is an hour less sleep.
