Planned Outage for Mushroom Escape

Mushroom Escape is moving. This will, unfortunately, necessitate some down time to facilitate this move. We hope the down time will be minimal, roughly twelve to fourteen hours, but we can not guarantee this. Escape will go down around 1 AM Eastern time on Wednesday, June twenty-eighth. We fervently hope we will be back up sometime Wednesday afternoon.

We want to thank you for your patience and understanding, and look forward to continue bringing you wonderful programing on Mushroom Escape. Thank you for listening to our station.

The Annual Weird Al Special on Toews on the Waves

Well, it's that time of year again: every year for I don't know how long, Bruce Toews has done a Weird Al special sometime in August or September. It will be happening again this year.

Intermittent Mushroom Escape Outages

The Internet is a strange and not-always-wonderful thing. We here at Mushroom Escape have been blessed with rock-solid Internet access for over a decade. With that in mind, we recently, as many of you may know, changed the way we run Mushroom Escape so that it is not being completely run out of the station manager's living room using his personal Internet. It has been wonderful.

Mushroom Escape 3.0

There have, over the years, been two incarnations of Mushroom Escape. There was a gap of several years between these two incarnations, and Escape 2.0 would be celebrating its third birthday in just a few days.

Instead, we're excited to launch Mushroom Escape 3.0. This time, the gap between 2.0 and 3.0 will only be a few seconds.

Mushroom Escape is Good to Go

This is just a quick note to let you know that Mushroom Escape is now back up and running on all the major platforms, includeing TuneIn, My Tuner Radio, OoTunes, etc. I want to sincerely thank everyone who has been so patient as we made this transition. I also want to sincerely thank Jonathan Mosen for keeping me advised every step of the way, for himself being very patient with me, and for his tremendous assistance in making Mushroom Escape what it is today. Finally, I want to thank Gordon Luke. His work with Mushroom Escape has been behind the scenes, but it has also been invaluable.

On the Move with Mushroom Escape

So What's Going On, Anyway?
As Jonathan explained in a previous blog entry, Mushroom FM has switched to a new streaming service. This offers several behind-the-scene benefits to us here at the station, and necessitated some changes to be made. On Friday, Mushroom Escape followed suit and cut over to the new service as well.
