On a Cuppa at the Mosens, does Braille still matter, and what is reading?

This week on A Cuppa at the Mosens, we go with a topic suggested by a listener. We’ve divided it into two key points. What is reading, and how relevant is Braille in 2017?

This week's Mosen Explosion makes a significant announcement

If you’ve been a listener to my Internet audio efforts over the years, then I think you’ll be very disappointed if you miss an announcement of significance that will be made on this week’s show. I won’t say any more than that other than to say that I won’t say any more than that, and that’s all I have to say about that.

On A Cuppa At The Mosens, if you were offered sight tomorrow, would you take it?

If you were offered sight tomorrow, would you take it? That’s the topic we’re covering on this week’s global call-in show dealing with blindness issues, A Cuppa at the Mosens on Mushroom FM.

Exploding into a big banana birthday month, it's The Mosen Explosion

Last week’s Mosen Explosion was broadcast live from the great month of May, even though for many listeners, it was still April because they were having trouble keeping up with us. I mean dude, we are so advanced!

But now, everyone’s made it to May, a big banana birthday month. Yes, three of the four bananas have birthdays in May ya see, which makes for a month that’s busy, and tough on the old wallet. Of course, this is no ordinary banana birthday month, since this year, we celebrate our first banana 21st.

Mayday, Mayday, Mayhem, it's The Mosen Explosion

Mayday Mayday Mayday! That’s what I say.

Hear some of the new Sgt Pepper Mixes early, on today's Richter Scale

On 26 May, The Beatles will be releasing new mixes of their iconic Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album. It's one of the most iconic, influential albums of the 20th century, so understandably, there is huge excitement about the new mixes.

Today on the Richter Scale, we've got our hands on some of those mixes, and we're going to play them for you, almost a month ahead of their official release. A couple are from the remixed official album, others are out-takes that will be released as part of the deluxe edition.

One of the best oldies shows around, Treasure Island Oldies, comes to Mushroom FM

In 1997, a talented broadcaster with an encyclopedic knowledge of oldies music had a bold idea. He decided to start an oldies show that would be available on the Internet. If you were listening to streaming radio back then, you'll remember the very grainy, digital sound. But people listened anyway, because the show was that good.

Almost exactly 20 years to the day that the first show aired, we're proud to announce that Treasure Island Oldies with Michael Godin comes to the home of the fun guys.

Thursday night on A Cuppa At The Mosens, accessibility, the carrot and the stick

Jonathan and Bonnie Mosen are talking accessibility this week on A Cuppa at the Mosens, Mushroom FM’s live global call-in show looking at issues from a blindness perspective.

Haven’t we come a long way in a short time? The difference that accessible technology has made in our lives over the last 25 years is staggering.

You're invited to an exploding party

Ah it’s a strange old thing, time. Even though it’s the 23rd of April at 2 Pm Eastern time, 7 PM in the UK, when Mushroom FM management gets so desperate for content that the Mosen Explosion comes on, it will in fact be the 24th of April in New Zealand.

It just so happens that the 24th of April will be exactly one year since my last birthday, so I guess that means it’s time for another one. And I couldn’t think of anything better to do than to get up very early on my birthday so I can have an on-air party with you in attendance.

Looking as good as we sound. Announcing our new logo

We love it when all the feedback comes in about how good Mushroom FM is sounding these days. Thank you.

And today, we're unveiling a shiny new logo that's worthy of our output.

Whenever we tweet and post to Facebook, and whenever you visit our website, you'll be greeted by our new logo, a stylish looking Mushroom FM with the two o's in Mushroom looking like button mushrooms. Yum!

Thanks to Steve, the sometimes sidekick for the Snowman, for lending his professional expertise.
