On the Mosen Explosion, our number's finally up

Thanks to the generosity of Mushroom FM management, the Mosen Explosion is back again for four hours of meh, blah, and oy. Well at least it would be if not for your input. There's less meh when you tweet in with interesting observations, there's less blah when you contribute your words of wisdom via email, and there is most definitely far less oy when you call the Mosen Line.

Join Jonathan on the Mushroom Flyer for the Fat Controller's Fiesta

At 3 Pm Eastern, 8 PM UK, 7 AM in New Zealand, Brian Hartgen starts the broadcasts from the Mushroom Flyer, our virtual train that can magically warp itself anywhere in the world. You won't want to miss the first show, because that's when you find out which coach you've been assigned to, and the prize winning starts right away. So we hope you'll be aboard on time, and stay aboard right throughout the thrilling journey. It'll be essential listening.

Big news! For our birthday, we have multiple copies of @KNFBReader to give away

As we've detailed previously, Mushroom FM has a stack of great prizes to give away for our sixth birthday. But there's one more thing, and it's huge.

We're proud to have KNFB Reader aboard the Mushroom Flyer. If this is an app you've been wanting, you'll have a number of chances to walk away with your choice of iOS or Android KNFB Reader absolutely free. All you have to do is register for our birthday event, and stay listening.

What's in the prize cupboard for our amazing sixth birthday weekend

Six years ago, Mushroom FM was born. We unveiled an exciting fusion of Internet broadcasting and social media. We've been honoured to be a guest in so many homes and to accompany people all around the world as they journey with their mobile device. The station broadcast continuously until November 2013, took a break, and then relaunched even better than ever in August last year.

The Mosen Explosion, with an unusual amount of spaghetti

Last week, it was Swedes. This week, there's plenty of spaghetti, as our wacky news segment is rather invaded by stories about the church of the flying spaghetti monster. Golly! You be careful with that, spaghetti is full of all the wrong carbs. Oy!

The Mosen Explosion's online, and on the phone

I'm taking a break from loading the Mushroom Flyer with birthday provisions to bring you another jolly old Mosen Explosion. First, my sincere thanks to uncle Dean for taking such good care of the show last week with all that talk about school days when I was stricken! Stricken I was! But now I'm unstricken and I can't wait to get back on the air.

Here it is! Proudly announcing Mushroom FM's sixth birthday celebrations

On 25 April 2010, Mushroom FM took Internet broadcasting to a new level, with its fun brand of radio and innovative use of social media.

We were sleeping for our fourth and fifth birthdays, but we’re once again wide awake and ready to party like it’s 2016. This will be our best birthday party ever, and the place for all things birthday this year as http://www.MushroomFM.com/birthday2016.

Farewell and thanks to two former fun guys

We hope that when you tune into a Mushroom FM show, it all sounds effortless. The reality is though that committing to a show on Mushroom FM is a commitment of more than just the hours that the show airs. The fun guys often think of themes and put music together based on them. There may be features that require some research, and often, we’re looking for things to say in our voice breaks that keep you interested. In short, it’s a bigger commitment than you may realise and I’m grateful to everyone who volunteers their time for Mushroom FM.

The Mosen Explosion launches the great kombucha experiment

If you're in Europe, and yes for the moment at least we can include the UK in that group, then you'll be pleased to know that with the clocks going forward in that part of the world, the normal relationship with Eastern US time is restored, so the jolly old Mosen Explosion is back when you usually expect it to start.

If you're in New Zealand, well, we're still in this crazy transitional period when it starts at 7 AM. I dunno, all this scary messing with time.

Mosen and the Snowman, Together again for the first time

What can we possibly do when Brian Dalton is doing other things in Dublin town, and can't welcome us to the weekend, eh? How are we supposed to carry on?

Well, the Snowman and I have been doing this radio gig, on and off the Internet, for a long time now, and we've always talked about getting on the air together and seeing what happens. Now, your luck has run out, because we're gonna do it. We're really, really, gonna do it.
