Listening to Mushroom FM: some changes we're making


Mushroom FM has moved to a new server for broadcasting to you. This is a bit like a terrestrial radio station changing frequency. We are transmitting on both the old and new virtual frequencies at the moment, but soon the old one will stop working, so it's important to read this post to see whether you need to do anything, most people will not. This post starts with the most common scenarios and gets more technical as we move to less common ones, but we believe we've covered all the ways you listen.

Mushroom FM is back

Hi everyone, we're pleased to say that our streaming server provider has resolved it's issue and we're back up and running ready to entertain you. Thanks for your patience.

Mushroom FM is presently off the air, but Mushroom Escape is unaffected

Hi everyone, it's Jonathan letting you know that at present, Mushroom FM is off the air. This is due to an outage with the provider of our streaming media servers, which is the last link in the chain that sees what we broadcast making it to you.

All our own systems over which we have control are working perfectly. This means that once the issue is resolved by our streaming server provider, everything should return to normal by itself. That's good, since it's late in the evening here in New Zealand and it's time to get some rest.

Join the conversation this weekend on Mosen At large, Maths equipment of the past, Scanning print documents, Louie voice control and much more

Kia ora Mosen At Largers.

It’s another bumper edition of Mosen at Large to keep you informed, make you think, and even provide a bit of entertainment too. As always, you are very welcome to help make it a great show through sending in a contribution.

There’s plenty on the show this weekend and here are just a few of the things we’ll cover.

Australia signed into law its new code involving big tech and big media. There’s more listener feedback on this and some further comments from me in one of the most significant threats to an open Internet we have ever faced.

Coming up this weekend on Mosen At Large, we reach three figures

Kia ora Mosen At Largers.

I’ve been a bit prolific in the podcast feed this week, which means that when I publish the podcast version of the live Mushroom FM show, it will be episode 100.

This show has taken off in astounding ways and I can only say a profound thanks for all the discussion and contributions that have made that possible. We’ve debated, helped each other out, reminisced and had a few laughs, and I think that is very special.

Coming up on this weekend's Mosen At Large, the conversation continues on recent hot topics, what's most important when choosing a computer, tech tips and more

Kia ora Mosen At Largers.

I have been glued to every minute, yes literally every minute, of the impeachment in the US this week. That’s a challenge when you have a very busy fulltime job so I will explain how I did it. I’m not sure I am using the perfect system yet, so you may like to improve the system I outline.

Join Jonathan and Anthony live for a Waitangi Day Special, all New Zealand music

6 February is Waitangi Day, New Zealand's national day which celebrates the signing of the treaty between the indigenous Maori people of New Zealand and European settlers.

As has become something of a tradition, we have a special Waitangi Day show where you can hear some great New Zealand music from our four decades of magic mushroom memories, and perhaps a little beyond that on occasion.

If you're a regular Mushroom FM listener, you'll hear some familiar songs but there'll be plenty that will be new to you. And if you're a New Zealander, it'll bring back many memories.

Coming up on Mosen At Large, when civil rights and religion collide, new ways we can advocate on Apple bugs, and the new and improved Google Talkback

Kia ora Mosen at largers. Thanks very much to everyone who not only listens to each episode, but so generously takes time to send in contributions. The community we have created is amazing and I am very grateful for it.

This weekend on Mosen At Large, Laptops, AirPods Max, Larry King and a brand new Brailliant line

Kia ora Mosen at largers. Listeners have been incredibly busy this week, sending in contributions and I truly appreciate it. But don’t let that put you off, I’m still keen to hear what’s on your mind regarding anything you think might be of interest to the Mosen At Large family.

Mosen At Large returns this weekend. Here's what's coming

Kia ora Mosen At Largers. Feeling rested, relaxed and reinvigorated, it will be my pleasure to be back with you this weekend as Mosen At Large returns. As always, I look forward to reading your emails and hearing your thoughts.
