Novelty Where You Least Expect It on Funny Fridays

What do you think of when you think of novelty? Weird Al; Tom Lehrer; The Goons; The Barron Knites; Bob Newhart; The Royal Canadian Air Farce; people like that, right? Sure, these people and groups are all known for their comedy, and rightly so. But what about Van Halen? Cliff Richard? Paul Young? Jim Reeves? When have you ever seen comedy records from these people?

The Richter Scale Season Finale, This Friday!

This is it.

The Thirteenth episode of Season One of the Richter Scale.
This is the episode where we will find the answers to the questions we've been asking ourselves all season.

"Which version of blinded by the light is the proper version?"
"Can you set rules about what a band can call themselves?"
"Will our hero survive?"

All this and more will be revealed in this, the final episode of this season of the Richter Scale.
Don't worry though, Season Two will be starting next week with all new features and music.

Open lines, open forum, this week on A Cuppa at the Mosens

If you heard last week’s show, the first to use Zoom Cloud Meetings, you’ll know that technically, it was a huge success. If you haven’t learned yet about our new ways to participate in Mushroom FM’s live call-in show, check out the show’s web page,

Later today, we're off to the parade. You can join us!

Two weeks ago today, New Zealand yelled with delight and sighed with relief, as we finally won the America's Cup back. This yachting trophy is the oldest prize in world sport, dating back to 1851.

Now New Zealanders are turning out all over the country to see the team and the Cup.

We love a good America's Cup victory parade, and a challenging technical task. So we're combining them, as Mushroom FM seeks, for the first time, to bring you live coverage of an outdoor event, streaming to our servers directly from an iPhone over 4G.

It's still about summer again this week on The Early Years

When you hear the final chord and laughter from Van Halen's "Happy Trails" ending today's edition of The Mosen Explosion, stay tuned for The Early Years on Mushroom FM, the home of the fun guys.

Lots of Great Music this Week on Come by the Hills!

Yes, it's time once again for another infusion of Celtic goodies to be squirted into your week! (Wasn't that a great image? Well, moving on...) I've got yet another Simple Single in "Me Music," a "Celtic Cover" that just popped out at me from nowhere, and some great tunes from Planxty in "Fiddlin' Around." As ever, if you tune in this week, you'll get three hours of high-quality music with a healthy dose of less-than-high-quality wit courtesy of yours truly.

Exploding on the eve of a bold Mushroom Fm broadcast

The Mosen Explosion is back again, because, frankly, it’s so hard to get quality programming these days so what can we do?

It’s school holidays here in the Zealand of New, so if we can get either of the teenage bananas in residence awake in time, we may well here live banana updates. There is a lot of interesting banana news floating around at the moment.
