The penultimate part tonight 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.

Features are Back Plus New Music, this Week on Come by the Hills!

Yes, it's time once again for Come by the Hills, Mushroom FM's Premier Celtic Music Show, and this week, we've got all our usual features plus an infusion of new (to the show at least) music courtesy of some generous birthday gifts I've received. We've got a Tom Waits "Celtic Cover" which itself sounds like a folk song, and you never know what else you'll hear, except that it'll be great Celtic music of course.

Goodbye Stranger, it's a logical, Supertrampical Mosen Explosion

Once again, the time has come for another four hours of chat, conviviality, and some of the best music ever made, as The Mosen Explosion is let loose on a suspecting world. It can hardly be unsuspecting anymore, given how long this soup has been going on.

It’s the birthday of Richard Davies from Supertramp on 22 July, so what a great excuse to make this classic band our featured group on this week’s show.

Rogues and Rovers, this Week on Come by the Hills

I find that summer (or winter, as the case may be I suppose) is a good time for experimenting and letting loose. So, again this week, we won't be relying on our tried and true features on Come by the Hills, but we will be looking at a tried and true theme of a lot of folk music: that of rovers and rogues. Sometimes the rovers are not rogues, and sometimes the rogues are not rovers, but either way, their adventures make for good stories and even better music. So come with me this week on a little journey with some perhaps dubious characters on Mushroom FM's premier Celtic music show!

Linda Ronstadt's our featured artist this week, on another epic Mosen Explosion

I’m back for yet another four hours of epic music, epic conversation, and epic interaction on this week’s epic Mosen Explosion.

Sadly, this week, I lost something of epic importance to me, my thesaurus.

Still, we soldier on, and we note that Linda Ronstadt was born on this day in 1946. So she’s our featured artist on this week’s show. Got any requests for a Linda song? She’s done so many epic ones! You can get them in via all the usual methods.

Rhythm & Booze: Wine, Wine, Wine this week on The Juke In The Back
