An Urge for Going and Autumn's Return, this Week on Come by the Hills!

Hello again! Sara Hilis here to tell you about this week's edition of Come by the Hills. We're live again this week, and we've got songs about the return of autumn to the Northern Hemisphere, songs about winds and rains in honour of Feona, now causing havoc to the east coast of Canada, and songs about that urge for going. There's even more than this of course, so I hope you can join me! If you can't do so because of the big storm, then please stay safe!

Welcoming Autumn, celebrating an anniversary, and remembering Ramsey Lewis this week on The Early Years!

After you've enjoyed Come By The Hills with Sara Hillis, tomorrow afternoon from 02:00 to 05:00, don't touch that dial, device, PC, Mac or smart speaker and join me for The Early Years, where and when 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.
