Remembering Elvis today on Lost in the 50s

Hi, I'm Steve Cutway. Join me today at 5 PM Eastern for Lost in the 50s on Mushroom FM.
Yesterday was the 39th anniversary of Elvis's death at the age of 42. I began a retrospective of all his singles from 1954-59, hits and non-hits. I got as far as the Fall of 1956. I'll continue today, finishing 1956 and starting 1957, the two years that produced many of his best singles.
I look forward to getting Lost in the 50s with you, Monday to Friday at 5 PM Eastern on Mushroom FM, the home of the fun guys, making magic mushroom memories.

Come with me and get Lost in the 50s

Were you around in the 50s? Were you born too late? Either way, relive the music from the
decade when rock and roll was born. Hi, I’m Steve Cutway, inviting you to join me and get Lost
in the 50s weekdays between 5 and 6 PM Eastern Time on Mushroom FM. Together, we’ll
remember the best music from the decade that changed the sound of music forever, the 1950s.
You’ll hear music from before the birth of rock as well as during its first five years of life. So
make a date (that’s what we did in the 50s) to join me, Steve Cutway, and get Lost in the 50s,

Mushroom Fm's new format, with cool new interactive features, explained

It’s a big day for us at Mushroom FM on Monday, as from 12 AM, we become the station we hope you’ll choose when you’re in the mood for four decades of magic Mushroom memories. So what exactly does that mean, and what is the station going to sound like?

Our primary purpose will be to bring you music from the 1950s through to the 1980s. Much of the time, you’ll hear a great blend of music from all four decades, and in a cool new interactive feature on our website, you can have a say in what we play. More on that in a bit.

As the finger hovers over the reset button, it's The Mosen Explosion

It's almost that time of the week again, when we invite you to tune in for four hours of exploding nonsense and great listener chat, as well as a wide selection of the best music ever made.

Mushroom FM will Soon Have a Celtic Connection!

Exciting news! The Celts will soon be invading the home of the fun guys! For three hours every Sunday night, jigs, reels and balads will be the order of the day as I serve up the best in Celtic music from around the world. Not only will I be playing traditional favourites which defined the genre, but also new songs inspired by tradition which have changed it forever.

There will be lots of fun features for you to enjoy, interesting info about your favourite artists and groups, and of course plenty of room for your requests.

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.
