Music to Cure What Ails You, this Week on Come by the Hills!

Sunday is here again in much of the world, and that means that it's time for more Celtic and folk music of an excellent kind on that most excellent station, Mushroom FM! I'm back this week and I'm live, though I came within a hair of deciding to do another encore presentation.

1950: Jukebox Rhythm Review, Part 1 this week on The Juke In The Back!

Diversity is the spice of life tonight on The Depths

Greetings fellow music travelers.

  • Latin jazz from Willie Bobo

  • Indian-inspired music from John McLaughlin
  • Deep tracks from Iron Butterfly, Humble Pie and Dan Fogelberg
  • And so much more.
  • Our trip begins promptly at 11:00 PM eastern, immediately following The snowman.

Jaw-dropping songs this week on The Early Years!

join me for The Early Years where you'll hear the best music from Rock and Roll's Golden Age (its first quarter century) with an occasional nod to other decades and genres.
When I welcomed back the Mushroom FM New Zealand contingent a couple of weeks ago, I suggested that my time for a break might be coming. I didn't know it would be so soon but I've decided to take February off. As a result, there will be no new shows this month but fear not, friends, because you'll still be entertained.

This week, live on The Mosen Explosion, can I just get my money back?

Once again that happy time has rolled around when I’ll be with you for three hours of fun, conversation and great music on The Mosen Explosion. The show also forms the basis of the Mosen At Large Podcast, so if you want to influence the podcast in real time and watch it as it’s recorded live, do join us on Mushroom FM.

This week has been a remarkable one for news, with senators in the US making a sham out of their constitutional duty and Britain finally leaving the EU. I’ll be commenting on both events and the common lesson they can teach us.

Like a bridge over troubled water, we will span the Depths

Greetings fellow music travelers.

This week marks the 50th anniversary of the release of Simon and Garfunkel's masterpiece album, "Bridge over Troubled Water."

Throughout the night, we will hear some different takes on classic Paul Simon tunes and, in the fourth hour, we will visit a sold-out Carnegie Hall in 1969 where Simon and Garfunkel perform songs from the album a full two months before its release.

Along the way, we'll encounter rare tracks from classic artists who are touring this Summer such as steely Dan, Steve Winwood and Hall and Oates.

More songs about mining and minerals this week on The Early Years!

This week, I conclude my 2-part, listener-suggested theme, "songs about mining and minerals". You'll hear songs from the 1940s to the 1980s from the country, folk, pop and rock genres including some "stretches" as I referred to them last week.
