it's Another Long Songs Long Weekend, this Week on Come by the Hills!

Here's a short blog entry. We're in the midst of a long weekend here in Canada, so it gives me an excuse to get out all the long songs and devote a show to them. Really, that's all there is to it. For the purposes of the show, anything over five minutes qualifies as a long song. So, if you're keen on Celtic music and want a big dose of it this week, tune in on Sunday night after Steve and The Early Years, or on Friday morning at 4:00 AM Eastern, after Jonathan and The Daily Fibre!

The best music from the 50s and 60s is what it's all about on The Early Years!

Join me in The Early Years where you'll enjoy the best variety of music from the 50s and 60s with an occasional nod to the 70s and even the 80s, including music from before the rock era which is generally accepted as starting in 1955.
After 14 theme shows and a replay, I'm back to regular shows this week and it feels good. That doesn't mean I won't do more theme shows in the future; I will, but a change is as good as a rest.

The Ravens this week on The Juke In The Back

The Juke In The Back” focuses on the “soul that came before rock n’ roll,” the records that inspired Elvis, Buddy Holly, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and countless others.

Come on over!

To Mel's Place , that is! Join me Friday from 4 to 6 pm eastern. We'll read our horoscopes, chit chat about this & that, and check out some weird news. Oh yes, and we'll play a few songs in between! As always, you can find me on Twitter (@meltweets418) or I'm now also on What'sApp. Let's talk!

Introducing a Brand New Album, the Battle of the Belle Dames, and so much more, this Week on Come by the Hills!

Yes, at long last Loreena McKennitt's new album, Lost Souls, has dropped, and we've got it this week on Come by the Hills! We'll be playing the album in its entirety throughout the show, and we'll have lots of other great music as well.

It's all about Moms, Mamas and Mas but no Mummies tonight on The Early Years!

Join me in The Early Years where you'll enjoy the best variety of music from the 50s and 60s including music from before the rock era which is generally accepted as starting in 1955.
It's Mother's Day in North America so this week, it's 50s and 60s songs for moms, mamas and mas, but no mummies!
I'm way beyond the gold for this show. You'll hear songs you may not have heard in a long time if ever, and songs you may not want to hear again.
