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.

Another perspective on summer this week on The Early Years

Sandwiched between The Mosen Explosion and Come By The Hills is a little show I call The Early Years.
Hello, I'm Steve Cutway. It's a variety of 50s and 60s music this week. For the first hour and forty minutes or so, I'll present the 20 top songs of the 60s in the Summer as chosen by Rolling Stone Magazine. In the remaining twenty minutes of the show, you'll hear a variety of music from the 50s and 60s including that A-side I talked about last week that went nowhere.

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.

This Week on Come by the Hills, I'm Here Even When I'm Gone!

Yes, even though I'm on vacation this week, Come by the Hills is still going ahead thanks to the miracle of modern technology. We'll have a few songs that remind me of summers up north at cottages by lovely lakes, and of course the usual selection of lovely Celtic music. Dervish will be our featured artist in "Fiddlin' Around," and we'll have a "Celtic Cover" which is all about the rugged beauties of the land and lakes of the Canadian Shield. We'll also have one of my "simple singles" in "Me Music."

Parodies Regained on Funny Fridays

A song parody is writing new words to someone else's tune. The Star Spangled Banner is a case in point, a nonhumorous parody of an old English drinking song.

When it comes to humorous song parodies, most people's minds will immediately jump to Weird Al Yankovic, who has had a tremendous amount of success over the last 35 years with his parodies of popular music. But is Weird Al alone? Absolutely not, not by a longshot.

On A Cuppa at the Mosens, is technology life changing for the blind, or over-sold?

With both US blindness conventions having concluded, we’re hoping for a bumper crop of listeners with interesting opinions calling into our global talk show this week.

We love a good NFB banquet address, and enjoy sitting together to listen to it intently. We don’t always agree with everything in every address, but we enjoy the care that is always taken to craft a cogent argument that makes us think.

Catch the Wind, the Moon and St. Christopher this week on Come by the Hills!

If you want to know exactly what that title means, you'll just have to tune in! It's another episode of Come by the Hills, the Celtic Music show on Mushroom FM. We've got three hours of every kind of Celtic music you can imagine, including a Donovan song performed by the Irish Descendants in "Celtic Covers," a setting of a Dylan Thomas poem in "Me Music," and plenty of other great music from artists such as Mary Black, Mackeel and Meg Davis. Mmmmmmm! That sounds good, doesn't it?
