The Mosen Explosion proudly cranks it all the way up to 280

Sunday Sunday, can’t fault that day, as the old song says or something. The Mosen Explosion is back with four unique hours of music and conversation.

And now, thanks to the generous engineers at Twitter, if your Twitter client has been updated to support it, you have double the expressiveness in every tweet. Imagine that! Twice the nutrients in every mouth-watering byte! So now you can let your voice be heard even more expressively just by way of a humble tweet! This is progress, but here at The Mosen Explosion, we can’t wait until the Twitter character count is set to 2TB.

Could there possibly be a better day for a Mosen Explosion?

We are exploding you on 5 November, which in some countries is known as Guy Fawkes day. It’s full of gun powder, explosions and frightened guide dogs. So there couldn’t possibly be a better day for a Mosen Explosion. Your guide dog is safe with us, though.

On the show this week, more fun with time. If you’re in my part of the world, the show starts an hour later than before, which means we’re now up to 8 AM NZ time, 6 Am in Australia. It’s still of course at 2 PM Eastern, and back to 7 PM UK.

Scheduling note. Mushroom FM's clocks go back this weekend

It is that time of year again when it is our duty to report more breaks in the fabric of the space/time continuum.

Mushroom FM keeps US Eastern time as its official time zone. Early on Sunday morning, the clocks will go back an hour.

If your clocks go back this weekend too, then everything will be at the same time as always.

If you're in Europe and the UK and your clocks went back last weekend, shows will once again be starting at the same time that you're used to.

No Cuppa this week, and the Smorgasbord for Thursday

First, just to advised that as foreshadowed on last week’s edition of A Cuppa at the Mosens, there is no show this week as I’ll be busy producing the much anticipated and highly epic iPhone X unboxing and set-up podcast for The Blind Side.

I do, however, have a Smorgasbord for you, our daily fusion of the latest tech news and the greatest musical memories.

Reviewers have their hands on the iPhone X, we summarise some of the things they’re saying, as well as tell you about something audibly exclusive that tells the world you have one of these new babies.

Software updates a plenty, and scary warnings. It's Wednesday's smorgasbord

Join me, Jonathan Mosen, at 3 AM and PM Eastern time, for this week that’s 7 AM and PM in the UK, as I bring you the smorgasbord. There’s no other show quite like it, combining the cutting edge of tech news with some of the best retro music ever. Something old, something new.

On the show for Wednesday, the boffins at Apple have been very busy little beavers, with software updates aplenty, I’ll fill you in.

Microsoft’s Surface Pro is getting a feature which, once you have it and use it, I guarantee you’ll never want to be without.

Monday's Smorgasbord is packed with informative tech news, and great music

After only hours of recovery time from the Mosen Explosion, I’m back on Mushroom FM with my regular week-day show, the Smorgasbord. It’s where we serve up a healthy dose of the latest in tech news and commentary, throw in some great conversation and some of the best music ever made.

On Monday’s show, the aftermath of the iPhone pre-order frenzy. I’ll talk wireless chargers, what’s coming up in iOS 11.1 and WatchOS 4.1, and WhatsApp has just introduced one of its most requested features.

The Mosen Explosion takes Wings

Finally we’ve got to short sleeve weather in glorious Wellington. The days are getting warmer and longer, and everything’s feeling marvellous. And I’m looking forward to bringing you a decidedly summery Mosen Explosion. Yet another reminder that this week, due to Europe ending daylight saving time while the US is still on it, it will be on at 6 PM in the UK just for this week, still 2 PM Eastern, and 7 AM in New Zealand.

An important programming note if your clocks are going back this weekend

This is a special cautionary note to all our Mushroom Crowd in Europe, the UK, and anywhere else where clocks are falling back this weekend.

The day has finally arrived, and the Smorgasbord's got the X factor

Are you going to be by a device at 3 AM Eastern time for the big iPhone X ordering? Some will get lucky, some will be left disappointed. I’ll be right there with you, trying to nab one for launch day. Tune in and find out how I get on. Oh the tension!

So why not fire up the jolly old Smorgasbord on Mushroom FM and we’ll keep each other company. There’s other tech news going on in the world too, including a girl who’s in trouble for showing off an iPhone X belonging to her Dad who works for Apple, more Google Pixel woes, and in the iOS calculator, numbers may not add up.

On the Smorgasbord, we pay tribute to Fats Domino, and there's tech news you can use

It’s Jonathan Mosen, back on Mushroom FM for Thursday’s edition of the Smorgasbord at 3 AM and PM Easter US time, that’s 8 AM and PM in the UK.

Today, I’ll get a couple of Fats Domino tracks into the playlist, paying tribute to this musical icon who died on Wednesday.

In tech news, we learn about how Amazon wants to let itself into your house to deliver stuff. There’s a new Android developer preview, and on the eve of iPhone X pre-orders, has Apple relaxed face ID security in the interest of getting more units out? Spoiler alert, they say they haven’t, despite reports.
