This week on A Cuppa at the Mosens, blind people being taken for a ride

We’re talking taxi and ride sharing services this week on A Cuppa at the Mosens, Mushroom FM’s live global call-in show where you can sound off on the issues that matter to the blind community.

The best 50s and 60s music variety tonight on The Early Years!

When you hear the dying strains of Van Halen's Happy Trails signalling the end of The Mosen Explosion for another week, don't touch your PC, your mobile device or your internet radio and join me in The Early Years on Mushroom FM, the home of the fun guys.
Hello, I'm Steve Cutway. Variety is what tonight's show is all about as I present the best music from the 50s and 60s, not from just the rock era that is generally accepted to have started in 1955, but also from 1951 until then. I have twin spins and version comparisons to keep you entertained.

We wrap up New Zealand Music Month in the Shed.

In just under half an hour from now, that’s at 11pm Eastern, 3pm Sunday here in New Zealand and 4am in the UK, we continue to celebrate New Zealand Music Month.
It’ll be four more hours of fantastic Kiwi tracks.
As it’s the last Saturday in May, it’s also the final four hour special, and what a fun month it’s been.
Plenty of requests from fellow Kiwi listeners, and so many songs I’ve not played in years, and today will be the same.
If you’d like to get in a request for your favourite Kiwi track, then simply e-mail: anthony at mushroomfm dot com

The Mosen Explosion, same dodgy show, possibly better sound

Here at Mushroom FM, we’re constantly striving to compensate for the mediocre Mosen Explosion with even better audio. Over the last couple of years, we’ve been embarking on a systematic programme of upgrading the equipment at Mosen Towers with new microphones, a new mixer, and now the programme is complete with the retirement of the trusty audio interface we’ve been using since 2009, and the introduction of a super duper new one which offers all sorts of capabilities of awesomeness. It may mean that the show sounds brighter, clearer, cleaner and just generally sparkly.

Big Jay McNeely this week on the Juke in the Back

The Juke In The Back” focuses on the “soul that came before rock n’ roll,” the records that inspired Elvis, Buddy Holly, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and countless others.

Sunday Will Never be the Same!

Yes, Spanky and Our Gang said it all. However, little did they know their prophetic powers, because now that Mushroom FM has Celtic music on Sunday nights right after The Early Years and before Moon Dreams, your Sunday, gentle listener, really will never be the same again!

On A Cuppa at the Mosens, coping with the overly helpful, well-meaning sighted person

A Cuppa at the Mosens is a live, weekly, global talk show, where we can discuss issues from a blindness perspective.

This week, most of us have been there. We’re going about our business, when someone arbitrarily decides that because we can’t see, we need help, and that assumption is made without asking first. Sometimes it can be quite a scary and violating experience, when unwanted hands are laid on us and we’re propelled in a direction we never intended to go. Yet there are times when we do need help, and we know others may be less independent than we are.

The big reveal. Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band 50th anniversary remix

On 1 June 1967, the most significant album in the history of popular music was released. In recent weeks, thousands of column inches worldwide have been devoted to this album and how it changed the face of popular music. But nothing beats hearing it, especially in its new, glorious, remixed stereophonic form.

It's all about variety tonight on The Early Years!

We've Got Long Songs This Week on Come by the Hills!

Alright, so here's what happened. I was sitting around all week procrastinating and wondering what I wanted to do for this week's episode of Come by the Hills, and then, like a firework streaking across the sky, it came to me. Since this is along weekend in Canada, why not do another "long songs" episode? (For my purposes, "long" means a duration of over 5 minutes.) So, that's what we're going to do.
