Celebrating the 60th anniversary of a transformative cultural moment on Friday's Mosen Explosion

On Friday’s Mosen Explosion, we celebrate the 60th anniversary of a night that changed music, culture and television forever.

On the night of February 9, 1964, a then record-breaking estimated 73 million Americans tuned into CBS to watch the Ed Sullivan Show, a popular variety program that featured singers, comedians, actors and other performers. But this night was different from any other, because the show's main attraction was a British rock band that had taken the world by storm: The Beatles. They had landed in New York to chaotic scenes just two days earlier.

Revisiting February 4, 2023, this Week on come by the Hills!

Do you remember what you were doing on February 4, 2023? Likely not, but as music is a powerful trigger for memory, perhaps listening to this week's episode of Come by the Hills, originally aired on February 4, 2023, will bring that day back as though it were yesterday! Ah well, we can hope, can't we? The truth is that things are rather frenetic around here, in a good way thankfully, so I've decided to do a rerun of Come by the Hills despite my promise last week that I wouldn't.
