It's all about trivia this week on The Early Years!

Join me for The Early Years where you'll enjoy the best variety of music from the 50s and 60s with an occasional nod to other decades, including music from before the rock era which is generally accepted as starting in 1955.
There are two songs that mention today's date. What are they? Tune in to find out.
After fulfilling a request for a first-time listener, I will play the songs that made up a trivia quiz of music from the 50s and 60s during a cruise that Nancy and I enjoyed in 2013. We scored 32 out of 40, 80% but I'm sure you'll do much better.

The Mosen Explosion includes a major Mushroom Fm announcement

Due to a shortage of qualified personnel, I’m back with you for another four hours of stuff, on The Mosen Explosion.

This week, it’s quite an exceptional show. I’ll be joined by a familiar Internet radio name to bring you a significant announcement about Mushroom FM. It’s been in the works for more than a couple of months now and I’m thrilled to be able to spill the beans at last. I think you’re going to be thrilled as well.

A Tribute to Stan Rogers, this Week on Come by the Hills!

Due to the overwhelming success of the Stan Rogers special I put together last year, I've decided to do another one on the occasion of the thirty-fifth anniversary of his far-too-untimely death on June 2, 1983. Stan Rogers is likely Canada's most beloved folk musician and his work and legacy have been ambassadors of the Canadian spirit for decades. His music is known world-wide, and his influence can be traced down the years. I'm sure that many of Canada's current singer-songwriters owe their own careers to Stan's music.

Solsbury Hill and More, this Week on Come by the Hills!

Yes, you read this correctly. We've got a cover of the famous Peter Gabriel tune on "Celtic Covers," and that's all thanks to a new (to us at least) album by the amazing Canadian Celtic band called Coig. We'll also have a lot of great music from a lot of other great bands and artists, and we'll generally have an amazing time as always.

So, if you've got Celtic cravings, tune in tonight after Steve and the Early Years, or catch the replay on Friday at 4:00 AM Eastern, 9:00 AM in the UK and Ireland, right after Jonathan and The Daily Fibre!

This week's show is packed with twin spins, version comparisons, same title different song pairs and one of my jaw-dropping songs.

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!

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.
