On Friday's Smorgasbord, location sharing, summoning Siri, great music and more

The weekend is almost here, but before you can Basque in it, you must first endure another edition of the Smorgasbord with Jonathan Mosen.

On the Friday edition, we learn about a new way to share your location with others, even if they don’t use the same type of phone as you.

On yesterday’s show, I asked if you’d ever sent an accidental email or text to the wrong person. Listeners respond on today’s show.

We learn about the science and technology that makes summoning Siri possible, even without pressing the button.

New day, new OS, new Smorgasbord, new government?

If you tune into the Smorgasbord with me, Jonathan Modem, at 3 Eastern time, be that 3 AM in the morning, 3 PM in the afternoon, 3 AM in the afternoon, or 3 PM in the morning US Eastern time, you are going to be rewarded with an historic show of historic significant that will undoubtedly go down in history for being historic.

First, it’s the first ever Smorgasbord coming to you live from the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. I’ll be talking about that, and the overwhelming disappointment of the update if you install it in New Zealand.

On today's Smorgasbord, that OS with the northern-centric name, Google's in trouble, and great music

I’d love it if you can join me, Jonathan Mosen, at 3 AM and Pm Eastern, for the Smorgasbord.

On the Wednesday edition, Microsoft Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, and why the name annoys the soup out of people around here.

Google now lets you more easily identify the pets in your photos, and they’re in trouble over calories…That’s Google, not the pets.

We talk social media behaviour, what 5G means for you, and hey, we’ll even play some of the best jolly music from the 50s to the 80s as well.

See you there.

The Smorgasbord. Wi-Fi exploits, get paid for your opinion, Sharon O'Neil and more

This is Jonathan Mosen typing to you. No doubt you can tell that, by the style of my typing.

What a super duper pooper scooper bumper dumper edition of the Smorgasbord I have lined up for you at 3 Eastern, 8 UK, that’s both AM and PM.

You might have heard about the krack Wi-Fi exploit which means that your Wi-Fi might not be as secure as you thought. What is it, and what can you do about it? I’ll give you info you need to know.

They say your opinion counts, but can your opinion pay? Yes it can, thanks to an app from Google, just released on iOS.

On the Smorgasbord, FM radio on your phone, Alexa's new smarts, and more

It would be beyond epic if you could join me, Jonathan Mosen, for another edition of the jolly old Smorgasbord. You can hear the show exclusively on Mushroom FM at either 3 AM or Pm Eastern, that’s 8 AM or PM in the UK.

On today’s show, there’s an increasing clamour to ensure that FM radio is available on all smartphones. Isn’t this a bit retro? Well, not really. I explain why FM radio on your phone could save your life.

We learn about the latest smarts gained by Amazon Echo, which make it an even cooler smart speaker than ever.

On today's Smorgasbord, Daryl Hall's getting older, hard drives are getting bigger

It’s amazing what we get away with on Mushroom Fm. It’s Wednesday, the peak of the week, and time for another Smorgasbord, with me, Jonathan Mosen at 3 AM and Pm Eastern US time.

On today’s show, we’re celebrating the birthday of super duper songster Daryl Hall, who along with John Oates did a number of songs that were epic.

In tech news, we reminisce about the small hard drives of old that we thought were so enormous, as Seagate announce a desktop hard drive that is bigger than huge and larger than massive. I’ll give you all the details.

On Tuesday's Smorgasbord, what song was banned by the BBC this day in 1962?

I hope you’ll join me, Jonathan Mosen, for Tuesday’s edition of the Smorgasbord. It’s a tasty mix of musical morsels, tech news, listener interaction and conversation.

On Tuesday’s show, we celebrate the birthday of someone who’s known as a bit of a rocker but took a bit of a detour. Listeners react to Monday’s show. We’ve got some epic music in the mix.

And we tell you about a song that was banned by the BBC on this day in 1962. You probably won’t believe that this song was banned, or the reason for banning it.

On Monday's Smorgasboard, John Lennon's birthday, instant messengers, great tunes

For some, it’s a little secret that for around 14 months, I’ve been hosting a fun show every week day from 3 until 4 AM Eastern. Now, with the scheduling changes, you can hear it at both 3 AM and PM Eastern, that’s 8 AM and PM in the UK.

The Smorgasbord is a great mix of music from our four decades of magic Mushroom memories, plus I’ll be keeping you updated with the latest tech news and chatting about this and that. It’s a friendly show with some of the best music ever made, with a lot of chat thrown in for good measure.

Hot Chocolate, a cool toy, and the Cold Hard facts on The Mosen Explosion

I’m already looking forward to my favourite time of the week, when I get to spend four hours with you, chatting about who knows what, and playing the best jolly music ever gosh darn made. Hot freaking dang and flaming heck. The Mosen Explosion is on again.

Take a look at our full new line-up

We've been hard at work making all the changes needed to bring you our fresh coat of paint, starting on Monday. If you've been listening over the last few days, you will have heard some fun new promos for our shows, containing their new times.
