Show for October 24

This Saturday night, the Snowman takes a good, long look at the telephone, and how it has evolved over the course of our lifetimes. And, we find out how the Snowman's early medical career got derailed, and how his fledgling desire to be a doctor got mercifully redirected. That, and so much more. Plus, we'll groove to great music by Rod Stewart, Chicago, Sheryl Crow, Guess Who, Jim Croce, and heaps more fantastic music from the 60's through the 80's. You can't beat it! It's a party you don't wanna miss, so don't. You can help celebrate show number 1 of the second three hundred shows.

See the World, this Week on Come by the Hills!

Hi there. Sara Hillis here to tell you about this weekend's episode of Come by the Hills, the Celtic music show. We're live again this Sunday with a focus on Folk music wit a Worldish twist. This is in order to pay tribute to Tom Dekker, a former Fun Guy and a well-loved friend of many listeners to this show. He passed away on October 10 and will be missed by many. He was a lover of music of all kinds, and was a great supporter and encourager of me as a musician and of Come by the Hills as well. He was a great supporter of pretty much everyone who knew him.
