Send your requests and memories for the conclusion of Elvis day

For over half a century, millions of people have smooched to “Can’t Help Falling in Love”. They’ve cried to “Are you Lonesome Tonight”. They’ve danced to “Jailhouse Rock”, and they’ve tried to sing “It’s Now or never” in the shower.

Elvis was such a gifted vocalist, recording timeless songs in so many styles, that is music as still as much loved as ever.

Locked and loaded. It's The Mosen Explosion. That I can tell you!

The Mosen explosion,
makes such a commotion,
whenever it comes on the air.
It’ll make you feel happy,
when life’s being crappy,
and lift you right out of despair.

So I suggest you,
turn the ‘shroom on at 2,
and phone in, or email, or tweet.
Because some people say,
when it comes to Sunday,
the Explosion just makes it complete.

An Elvis fan? Lock us in. August 16 is Elvis day.

It was 40 years ago on 16 August 1977 that the world was shocked by the death of Elvis Presley, known widely as “the king of rock and roll”. He was just 42.

Just as radio stations the world-over suspended their regular programming back then to play Elvis music, Mushroom FM is suspending its regular schedule on 16 August to bring you 24 hours of Elvis-related programming. Whether you’re a dedicated fan who wants to pay homage on a difficult day, or someone who’s curious about the extent of this incredible figure’s contribution to music, you’ll be glad you joined us.

On A Cuppa at the Mosens, Sara helps us start an occasional series

We’re back for another week of your chitchat on Mushroom FM’s global, international and worldwide talk show, A Cuppa at the Mosens. This week, we’re beginning a series, which we hope to do every month or so for the next few months.

One of the things that really makes Mushroom FM stand out head and shoulders above a lot of other options is the great personalities we have on the team. There’s room for more, of course, and we have an announcement about a new recruit very soon. But we thought it would be great to give you a chance to learn more about the members of our team.

The Smorgasbord pays tribute to Glen Campbell

Every week day, I’m here at 3 AM Eastern time, 8 AM in the UK, 7 PM in New Zealand.

Earlier today my time, word came through of the death of Glen Campbell, aged 81, after a very public battle with Alzheimer’s.

On the next Smorgasbord, I’ll be paying tribute to Glen Campbell with an hour of some of his greatest hits.

I hope you’ll join me, right after Anthony Unleashed, here on Mushroom FM.

Another Chairy Mosen Explosion

Every week, well, most weeks anyway, we bring you the Mosen Explosion on the marvellous, mighty Mushroom malarkey. Like the famous old song says, it’s what we do, each and every Sunday, on the ‘shroom at 2.

On A Cuppa at the Mosens, Prejudice. Are blind people better people?

We sometimes meet people, some of them blind, who suggest that there’s a real advantage to being blind. Specifically, we’re likely to be less judgmental, less discriminatory, about visual factors that we can’t see. Proponents of this view argue that because we can’t see the colour of someone’s skin, we’re more likely to make assessments based on the content of their character. We don’t, it is said, no so readily whether someone’s short or tall, fat or thin, the quality of their clothes. This makes us, so the argument goes, more tolerant people.

Back to our old tricks in chatpers 4, 5, and 6, The Mosen Explosion

Every day, every day, every day, every day I write the book. Oh baby! But I’m taking a wee break from writing the book to bring you another thoroughly forgettable edition of the jolly old Mosen Explosion at 2 Pm Eastern, 7 PM in the Kingdom of U.

It’s hosted by me, Jonathan Mosen, the man of whom the famous Anthony Scaramucci, AKA “the mooch” said, “Mosen’s nothing but a paranoid souping soup drinker and a Baker Street lover, out to tap his own cane and we should explode the whole communications team”. Dude, such language!

On a Cuppa at the Mosens, does Government have a role in levelling the disability playing field?

As we publish this message, Americans are celebrating the 27th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act’s passage. It’s widely considered to be ground-breaking civil rights legislation, and has inspired similar legislation in numerous countries. But few would argue that we still don’t have a long way to go until we reach equality of opportunity.

On The Mosen Explosion, it's the ones you can't get that are the most attractive

The Mosen Explosion is back for another forgettable four hours on the jolly old Mushroom FM.
