After the Thin Man is a 1936 American comedy film directed by W. S. Van Dyke and starring William Powell, Myrna Loy, and James Stewart.

A message for our UK listeners regarding TuneIn support

Listeners in the UK have let us know that in the last 36 hours or so, Mushroom Fm and Mushroom Escape can't be heard using the TuneIn mobile app or through Alexa integration. We don't know but we expect it is affecting Google Assistant too.

Although the timing might suggest it, this is completely unrelated to internal changes we have been making here, and we are not the only Internet station to be affected by this problem.

Have your say ahead of this weekend's Mosen at Large. Voting blind, more on audiobooks, what will Apple reveal next week, and Envision AI

Kia ora everyone. It’s going to be a pleasure to get your thoughts for this week’s Mosen At Large. And as mentioned on last week’s show, if you make a contribution and mention that you’d like to be entered into the draw, you could win three months free membership to Libro.fm.

We’ve been getting more feedback on audiobooks, what makes a good and a bad narration, and whether you prefer audiobooks over Braille or TTS. You’re welcome to keep that conversation going.

Join us for a retirement party and a welcoming party as one chapter ends and another begins

Like many special events in Mushroom FM's history, the virtual meets reality as Mushroom FM relocates its cyber facilities to a new, purpose-built computer designed to serve us well into our second decade of entertaining you.

It's Almost Time for Another Country Oasis!

What do pickup trucks, trains, dysfunctional families, booze, and hound dogs have in common? Well, okay, not a lot, really, but there are those, such as my husband, who would claim that this is what country music is all about. I, on the other hand, intend to show you that this is simply not the case, with the Country Oasis, heard every Wednesday on Mushroom FM. Okay, there may be pickup trucks, trains, dysfunctional families, booze and hound dogs in some of the songs I play, but that's just coincidence, I assure you.

Join us on 09/09 as we switch off something old and switch on something brand new

When I was a kid, I was fascinated by any radio station making a change. Whether it was a move to a new studio, a change of frequency or a new format, I wanted to be there for the moment of the transition to see what it was like. I think many blind people who have grown up with a love of radio feel the same.

That’s why we’re making a bit of an occasion out of a big change at Mushroom FM.

Revisiting Buffy Saint-Marie and More, this Week on Come by the Hills!

Yes, it's time once again for another encore presentation from the CBTH archives. This one's from this past June, and it features the amazing career and artistry of Buffy Saint-Marie, as well as some songs from Quebec. We were celebrating National Indigenous Peoples' Day here in Canada, as well as Saint-Jean-Baptiste Day in Quebec. It was an interesting episode for me to do, I think that Buffy's work is very topical right now, and I hope you enjoy reliving it, or perhaps living it for the very first time!
