It's May! It's May! That Gorgeous Holiday, this Week on Come by the Hills!

Hello. Sara Hillis here again to let you know what's coming up tonight on the fabulously folky feast that is Come by the Hills! Join me live at 8:00 PM Eastern for three hours of songs about May, some Nova Scotia songs we didn't get to last week (including a comparison of three versions of The Ballad of Spring Hill for your perusal and pleasure,) and whatever else I feel like playing. Who knows? We may even throw in some Julie Andrews for the fun of it. It is May after all!

Clyde McPhatter: 1955-59 this week on The Juke In The Back!

Anne's Lazy Sunday is Back!

I’d love it if you could join me, Anne Cosgrove for “Anne’s Lazy Sunday” for two hours starting at 4 pm eastern, that’s 9pm in the UK!

I’ll have plenty of great music over the four decades and some features as well.

Bargain Bucket B-Sides – Sometimes, the B-Sides turn out to be better than the actual hit single so I’ll be featuring two of these in the show

It's a twisty turny musical journey tonight on The Depths

Greetings fellow music travelers.

Saturday night is almost here, so open up your mind and open up your ears for four hours of deep classic rock with lots of tantalizing tasties sprinkled in for good measure.

We'll listen to brand new music from Gordon Lightfoot, David Clayton Thomas and Deep Purple. We'll also hear a new track from Doug Cosmo Clifford of CCR fame, and I will tell you the whole story of his new album that has been 35 years in the making.

A little of this and more of that this week on The Early Years!

After you've enjoyed The Mosen Explosion this afternoon from 02:00 to 05:00 PM, stay tuned and join me in The Early Years where you'll enjoy the best music from Rock and Roll's Golden Age (its first quarter century) with an occasional nod to other decades and genres.
I will remember a sad event that happened 50 years ago this weekend, pay tribute to two musicians we've lost recently and finish my listener-suggested "songs about music" theme begun March 28.

Deep Dive

It was a warm Sydney Saturday in 1974. We first kissed in her family's pool. Joan Armatrading was on the radio. I have never forgotten.

Music is the backdrop to many of our memories.

I'm Graeme Innes, and we'll share those memories on Deep Dive. We will listen to one artist for one hour. We'll talk about the artist, share our favourite songs, and our memories as well.

Tune in on Monday at 4 PM Eastern, 6 AM Tuesday in Australia. Or on Wednesday at 6 AM Eastern, 8 PM in Australia.

Firing up the Smoker on the All Day Breakfast

Hi everyone

On the show a couple of weeks ago, a few people expressed interest in my smoker and how it worked. Last weekend of course we wanted to honour ANZAC Day, and demonstrating a smoker didn't seem like an appropriate thing to do.
However, this week, I've ventured out the back and recorded a demo for you which I'll be featuring on the show.

As always there's a great selection of music, and lots of friendly chat, so I hope you'll join me from 4 PM Eastern that's 6 AM Saturday on the east coast of Australia, and 8 AM in New Zealand.
