Open lines, open forum, this week on A Cuppa at the Mosens

If you heard last week’s show, the first to use Zoom Cloud Meetings, you’ll know that technically, it was a huge success. If you haven’t learned yet about our new ways to participate in Mushroom FM’s live call-in show, check out the show’s web page,

Later today, we're off to the parade. You can join us!

Two weeks ago today, New Zealand yelled with delight and sighed with relief, as we finally won the America's Cup back. This yachting trophy is the oldest prize in world sport, dating back to 1851.

Now New Zealanders are turning out all over the country to see the team and the Cup.

We love a good America's Cup victory parade, and a challenging technical task. So we're combining them, as Mushroom FM seeks, for the first time, to bring you live coverage of an outdoor event, streaming to our servers directly from an iPhone over 4G.

It's still about summer again this week on The Early Years

When you hear the final chord and laughter from Van Halen's "Happy Trails" ending today's edition of The Mosen Explosion, stay tuned for The Early Years on Mushroom FM, the home of the fun guys.

Lots of Great Music this Week on Come by the Hills!

Yes, it's time once again for another infusion of Celtic goodies to be squirted into your week! (Wasn't that a great image? Well, moving on...) I've got yet another Simple Single in "Me Music," a "Celtic Cover" that just popped out at me from nowhere, and some great tunes from Planxty in "Fiddlin' Around." As ever, if you tune in this week, you'll get three hours of high-quality music with a healthy dose of less-than-high-quality wit courtesy of yours truly.

Exploding on the eve of a bold Mushroom Fm broadcast

The Mosen Explosion is back again, because, frankly, it’s so hard to get quality programming these days so what can we do?

It’s school holidays here in the Zealand of New, so if we can get either of the teenage bananas in residence awake in time, we may well here live banana updates. There is a lot of interesting banana news floating around at the moment.

Back Of The Box: Rare 78rpm Shellac this week on The Juke in the Back

The Juke In The Back” focuses on the “soul that came before rock n’ roll,” the records that inspired Elvis, Buddy Holly, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and countless others.

The Smorgasbord says "Happy birthday Ringo"

I'm Jonathan Mosen, and every week day, I'm playing a wide variety of tunes, and chatting about this and that, at 3 AM Eastern time, that's 8 AM in the UK.
My Friday show is a special one, because it's Ringo Starr's birthday. He's turning 77 on 07/07. Golly!
So the smorgasbord is completely dedicated to Ringo, featuring music from him with the Beatles and on his own.
So celebrate with Ringo and me on the Smorgasbord, only on Mushroom FM.

We’re going all 90’s in The Shed this Saturday night!

Were you a teenager like me, in the 1990’s?
Were you a child in the 1990’s that danced and sung to groups like the Spice Girls?
Did you have a group of friends, and you’d quietly sing songs in the style of Boys to men?
Perhaps you were in your 20’s or older, but loved the music for its variety such as trip-hop or grunge to name a couple?

A Cuppa at the Mosens, an open forum and better ways to contribute

With our listeners in the northern hemisphere well into holiday mode, we’re having a relaxed open forum where you can chat about anything on A Cuppa at the Mosens this week. We’d love to hear from you, with our clearer, easier ways to contribute.

We’ve evaluated the show from a technical perspective and are making changes that will make it even easier to call in, and the audio quality much better for more callers.

It's all about summer again this week on The Early Years

When you hear the final notes of Mark Wilson's piano stylings ending today's special edition of The Mosen Explosion, stay tuned for The Early Years on Mushroom FM, the home of the fun guys.
Hello, I'm Steve Cutway. It's all about summer again this week as I continue my survey of summer songs from the 50s and 60s begun last week. This week, it's songs from the 60s. I have version comparisons and a "60s flip". Next week, I'll finish my survey of summer songs including your requests if you have any.
