The Blind Side has now concluded on Mushroom FM, but will be continuing as a podcast

Hello everyone, thanks to those who have provided such warm encouragement regarding The Blind Side. We've clearly demonstrated a need for such a show and it will definitely be continuing.

As indicated on today's show and in another post on the Mushroom FM blog, The number of podcast listeners to The Blind Side has been quite remarkable. That shows us that there's a real hunger for this content, but people want to consume it on their terms. They want to be able to speed it up, skip through it, and pick and choose what they hear. A radio experience can't offer that.

Statement from Jonathan Mosen about the future of Mushroom FM

Time flies when you're in the company of amazing listeners, and it's hard to believe that Mushroom FM has been back on-air for nearly a year. It's been fun bringing the Mushroom magic back.

Monday's edition of The Blind Side puts the spotlight on Braille

The Blind Side is Mushroom FM's daily current affairs show from a blindness perspective.

Coming up on Monday's edition of The Blind Side, we talk about the show's future as we transition next week to a weekly podcast.

Mary Schnackenberg joins us to talk about the recent general assembly of the International Council on English Braille. We discuss the current state of the code, consider its relevance in today’s high-tech world, and we ask the question, why is it necessary to keep tampering with it.

The Mosen Explosion celebrates 50 years of Revolver

Just like the name the Beatles, the album name Revolver has a double-meaning. It can mean the gun, or it can mean the record revolving on the turntable. When people began to play Revolver on their turntables 50 years ago this weekend, they knew rock music had really come of age. In terms of production, musical experimentation and sophistication, the Beatles had transcended all others with this remarkable album.

It's An Olympic Bonair

The Russian judge gives her a ten. The American judge gives her a nine. You can give her two hours of your time—it’s Bonair 6:00 – 8:00 EST on and in all your fav music apps. With the Olympics in full swing, we will play songs about running, jumping, swimming, winning, losing and whatever else strikes your fancy. There will be the usual Bonnie banter, and Jonathan will join me for a political update and talk about his new show.

Don't miss The Elvis Presley Story, starting this weekend

begin a new rockumentary here on Mushroom FM. Having been in Britain for some time with our Beatles and British Invasion rocumentaries, we're going across the pond for an in-depth look at one of the most influential performers of the 20th century.

The Elvis Presley story was originally produced after extensive research in 1971. After Elvis's death in 1977, it was updated, and re-released. And it's that version that we'll be playing over the next seven weeks.

Today on The Blind Side, an extended interview with Graeme Innes

Graeme Innes has made an outstanding contribution to blindness and disability advocacy, and he's just written a memoir, "Finding a Way". Graeme talks with Jonathan Mosen about his life and work.
