On A Cuppa at the Mosens, Blind Like Me. Is it right to blindfold the sighted?

This week on A Cuppa at the Mosens, we’d like to know what you think of blindfolding the sighted, or even the visually impaired.

Can blindfolding be a useful educational tool, heightening the empathy sighted people have for the challenges we face? Or, when suddenly deprived of a sense on which sighted people are so dependent, does blindfolding result in creating distorted pictures of what our daily lives are like.

The best music variety from the 50s and 60s tonight on The Early Years!

When you hear the dying strains of Van Halen's Happy Trails signalling the end of The Mosen Explosion for another week, don't touch your PC, your mobile device or your internet radio and join me in The Early Years on Mushroom FM, the home of the fun guys.
Hello, I'm Steve Cutway. Variety is what The Early Years is all about as I present the best music from the 50s and 60s, not from just the rock era that is generally accepted to have started in 1955, but also from 1951 until then. It's music and memories to keep you entertained including a number of version comparisons.

Celtic Music is Back for Another Week on Come by the Hills!

Before I tell you about this week's show, I want to thank everyone who wrote or tweeted in about the Stan Rogers show I did last week. I heard some lovely stories about the man whom I was never able to see perform which only reinforced my high opinion of his music and his legacy for Canada and humanity in general. I managed to impress some pretty knowledgeable folkies with my Stan picks. That's a pretty tall order as I myself should know. It's hard to be a folky sometimes, because so many radio stations stick to a few well-known songs from any particular artist.

On The Mosen Explosion, we're supplying you with some air

Another Sunday, Monday morning for me in New Zealand, and another chance to hang out with you for some great music and fun conversation on The Mosen Explosion. I can’t wait.

I consider myself quite fit these days, exercising as I do for 30 minutes each day. But I’m nowhere near as exercised as the franchise in Britain. And it looks like it may not be too long before the old franchise in Britain gets even more exercise. Golly!

A Very Special Tribute this week on Come by the Hills!

Friday, June 2, marked the 34th anniversary of the tragic and needless death of Canadian folk singer-songwriter Stan Rogers. He died at the age of 33 when a plane he was on caught fire after making an emergency landing. He was a prolific artist, working steadily from 1970 till his death, which occurred while he was flying back to Canada from a folk festival in the US. He wrote songs about Canadian life, songs that were inspired by Canadian history and songs that told great stories. We'll be saluting him this week on Come by the Hills with a special tribute in the first hour.
