Announcing our new daily news and current events show, The Blind Side

After considerable planning and preparation, Mushroom FM is proud to announce The Blind Side, a news and current events show proudly from a blindness perspective.

About The Blind Side

The Blind Side is a magazine-style show, hosted by Jonathan Mosen, that includes news, interviews, technology and lifestyle programming, interspersed with some great music.

I humbly accept your nomination to host The Mosen Explosion

Here we are in this glorious little hiatus between US major party conventions. If you're like me and can't turn them off, but feel the need to decompress before the next one, then join me for four fun-filled hours of music and conversation on the Mosen Explosion Party.

Here is our Mosen Explosion party platform, adopted by acclamation when I clapped my hands to applaud it.

The food and beverages of your choice are completely, utterly, totally, absolutely free of charge as long as you bring them yourself.

Hee haw! Hee haw! It's Bonair the Donky

Hee ha! Hee haw! It’s Bonair the donkey 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. on mushroomfm.com and in all your fav music apps. Last week, it was republicans and elephants. This week it is democrats and donkeys. As we enter round two in the battle of the of the presidential candidates, we will play songs about Philadelphia—the city of Brotherly love, take your requests, and have a recipe for Philly cheesesteak in “Food for Thought”. So whether you’re left or right tune in this night. If you’d like to contact the show, email bonnieatmushroomfm.com or tweet @bonniemosen.

Head on down to The Shed!

It’s almost that time of the week again.
You know that time, every Saturday night from 11Pm Eastern, 4AM Sunday in the UK and 3Pm Sunday in New Zealand, where I open up the doors for four whole hours of, um stuff.
Four whole hours of music, fun, listener interaction, a couple of special features, and of course your requests.
As many of you know, the music selection can be a little all over the place at times, but hey variety is the spice of life is it not?
The Live and Loud segment is back, and so too is the Triple Threat.

Watch out watch out! The Mosen Explosion's got Pokemons!

I'd like to say I'm down with the cool kids and totally fixated with Pokemon Go. But I'm not, because it's inaccessible you see. To be honest,
even if it were accessible, I wouldn't be fixated with it on account of having a life, but hey, it's the principle of the thing, right?
Speaking of cool kids, Richard the cool banana, who is very keen to play Pokemon Go, is unable to, because of Android fragmentation. The processor in his phone isn't supported by the game. Meh, meh and triple meh. I include that last sentence on his behalf.

Trumpety Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump! It's BonAir.

An elephant never forgets and neither does Bonnie Mosen! Join her for Bonair 6:00– 8:00 p.m. EST on mushroom fm.com and in all your favourite music apps. Since next week is the republican convention in Cleveland, we will play some songs with political or presidential themes, play your requests, and have an easy recipe for apple pie in “Food for Thought”. So don’t be a donkey, join the fun. If you’d like to contact the show, email bonnieatmushroomfm.com or tweet @bonniemosen. You can also call the Mosenline at 701-801-3263.

Join jaunty Jonathan for a feeling flaming fabulously fantastic Mosen Explosion!

I feel good, diddle diddle diddle dit, dit, I knew that I would now, diddle diddle diddle dit dit. an, where are those old singing speech synthesisers when they'd come in handy, eh? Where?

Last week, inspired by eye pain, we featured songs all about eyes and looking. And holy soup! I could easily have done a show four times longer, there was so much material.

Four Seasons in the Shed.

This week in New Zealand, it’s been sunny, sunny, still sunny, then rain, wind, rain, and oh yeah, sunny, again.
This mild winter still continues, although we’re told the real winter will appear towards the end of this month.
What does this tell me?
That our beloved Met Service here in New Zealand, don’t really have a clue what’s happening, as only two weeks ago, they said the mild winter would continue right till spring.
Lucky for you though, I don’t work for the Met service, therefore I know what’s happening.

Join Me for a Special Bonair

Join me for a special Bonair “Remembering Hazel” Saturday 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. EST here on mushroomfm.com and in all your fav music aps. It’s been a tough week. On Wednesday, one of my favourite cousins, Hazel Richardson, passed away after a short but brave battle with cancer. We honour those we have lost in many mediums--a poem, a song, quiet meditation in a meadow or on a mountain. There will be a memorial service, but I chose to remember and celebrate her life by playing some of her favourite music, and sharing my memories of this wonderful lady on my show.

Celebrating Ringo Starr's 76th birthday today

One of the most influential musicians of the 20th century, Ringo Starr, was born 76 years ago today. That sure is worthy of celebration.

Join me, Jonathan Mosen, right after Steve Cutway at 6 Pm Eastern, 11 PM UK, as for two hours we say happy birthday to Ringo. The first hour, our regular 60s slot, features nothing but music by The Beatles, particularly songs where Ringo sang lead vocals. Other tracks we'll play showcase his skills as the best rock drummer.

In my second hour, where we're stuck in the 70s, we'll draw from Ringo's well known and lesser-known 70s track.
