Mushroom FM hits the internet and wi fi wave bands

Today I was looking on “new stations” on my frontier silicon based radio, and found Mushroom FM.  I found myself tuned to it from 9am through to 1pm.  The shows were presented by very intelligent presenters. One sounded either from Australia or New Zealand. Next came a programme by an American Lady called Erin and her husband.  The variety of music from rock to oldies and beyond was refreshing as was the talk.

Why Present on Mushroom FM?

Mushroom FM is a fun, supportive place to broadcast. We promote ourselves in innovative ways that encourage people to hear us, and most importantly, our standards in terms of audio production and presentation are very high. Right from our classy JAM jingle package to our innovative promos, Mushroom FM has become synonymous with excellence.
Every one of us is a volunteer, but we believe that in no way allows us to produce shows of any lesser quality than if we were being paid the big bucks. We all possess a strong work ethic, and a pride in our own and the station’s performance. It’s these factors that keep listeners coming back for more, and recommending us to their friends. There’s not much point in putting all the hard work in if the listeners aren’t there to hear it. With Mushroom FM, you become part of a well-established and popular brand, with a loyal and growing listener base.
