A special edition of The Mosen Explosion in loving memory of Dame Vera Lynn

Dame Vera Lynn has died aged 103. That is certainly a life well lived, and yet like many others her death has deeply saddened me.

Dame Vera was a part of the soundtrack of my childhood. My parents were fans, so I grew up listening to her music. I loved it then, and I love it now. Her pure voice, perfect diction, and plaintive songs of hope still move me. She has been a part of the soundtrack of my adulthood too, in particular, "We'll Meet Again" was played at the end of my dad's funeral service.

On Mosen At Large this week, a thorough review and demonstration of the most accessible TV I've ever come across

Kia ora koutou Mosen At Largers. As always I’ve been enjoying your contributions coming in ahead of this weekend’s show and am looking forward to putting the show together.

What are your wishes for iOS 14? This and more on this weekend's Mosen At Large.

Mosen At Large on Mushroom FM is a three hour magazine show focussing on talk that’s entertaining, informative, usually friendly, sometimes controversial but always interesting.

The Mosen Explosion is fun! Now it’s here with all the classic features every weekday starting 8 June

It’s back in its original music-dominated form, but bigger than before with a massive five hours every week!

You can now hear The Mosen Explosion every weekday at 2 AM Eastern, repeated again at 2 PM Eastern. Do all these complicated time zones break your brain? We’ve got you covered. Visit the schedule page on Mushroom FM’s website and you can find out when that is in your time zone.

Here's what's coming up on Mosen At Large, live on Mushroom FM at 2 PM Eastern on Saturday

It’s the beginning of a new era this weekend as we bring you Mosen At Large live on Mushroom FM from 2 until 5 PM Eastern on Saturday, that’s 7 to 10 PM in the UK, and bright and early on Sunday morning from 6 until 9 AM in New Zealand.

My future on Mushroom FM, live coverage of the SpaceX launch and much more on The Mosen Explosion

Another week has rapidly rolled around and it’s nearly time for another Mosen Explosion on Mushroom FM.

This week, I’ll be making an announcement about my future on Mushroom FM. No, I’m not going anywhere, but things are going to be a bit different shortly. I’ll explain what and why.

This week on The Mosen Explosion, a week is a long time at Mosen Towers

Ah, those were the days, my friend, we thought they’d never end. We’d sing and dance, forever…sorry, sorry. It was only a week ago when I was last on the Mosen Explosion, talking about some of the confusion surrounding compatibility between the forthcoming Sonos ARC, the Apple TV 4K, and Dolby Atmos. I made it very clear that I was not going to be forced into replacing my perfectly good television with another, just for the Sonos ARC. Oh no I was not. Get outa here!

Let it be, new Sonos gear, and a generally big week for tech. It's The Mosen Explosion

Another Mosen Explosion is fast approaching on Mushroom FM, and with it, the end of a long-running series. Back in 2013 on the show, we began celebrating the 50th anniversaries of the official Beatles album releases. This weekend, it’s the 50th anniversary of the Let It Be album. Thankfully, the Beatles haven’t remixed this one. It of course received a do-over in 2003 with the Let It Be Naked album, taking out all the horrible Phil Specter over-production.

Get ready, our virtual music festival, Mushroomstock 2020, is almost here, and you can still get your tickets

Thanks to everyone who joined our walk down memory lane as we celebrated our 10th birthday. But now, on with the future as our next decade begins in style!

One of our most popular events during the last 10 years has been our creation of a live music festival without the horrible conditions and the bad
food, but with some acts you thought would never perform again. Join us on 26 April at 8 AM Eastern for our longest, most ambitious Mushroomstock yet,
