Mosen on down for this week's Country Oasis

Sadly, cute Caroline can't be with us this week for the Country Oasis. But I really enjoy my two-hour fix of country, so I decided if the expert couldn't do it, then I'd have to fix me my country fix myself. So I'm fixin' to bring you two hours of the best of country old and new, Friday Eastern time at 2.

I've got a few great story songs, some songs that remind me of my childhood, a few New Zealand country tunes, and of course some country with a Beatles connection.

We're Giving Thanks Canadian Style This Week on Come By The Hills!

Instead, we have decorative gourds, turkies, pies, pies, and yes, more pies! (Did I mention the pies?) So, whether you are full of Fall feasting or whether you simply want something fun to do on a Sunday night as usual, join me for a veritable cornucopia of Celtic creations both traditional and modern.

The Chords this week on The Juke in the Back

This week’s “Juke In The Back” digs deep into a group that is usually only remembered for one, incredibly influential tune, “Sh-Boom.”  The Chords cut that tune in 1954, right at the height of America’s fear of the Atomic Bomb and this song did more for helping to launch rock n’ roll than almost any other.

Woofman's World Music Show 8 has music with an indo-Canadian twist, some central Asian rock, classical pieces with various captivating string arrangements, and other unusual instruments.

But before that, we revisit Canadian “Beyond Rap” artist K’Naan with the original version of his “Wavin’ Flag” song, plus an example of the effectiveness with which he tells us his story.

Then, scattered throughout the show, more tracks by Anda Union and Hanggai, groups of ethnic Mongolians who record in China and whose fame is spreading internationally.
