Taking a Break

Hello! Sara Hillis here to let you know that, unfortunately, I need to take a hopefully short break from doing Mushroom things. I just found out last evening that my father has died, and I can tell you right now that I just can't summon the energy to do the radio host thing at the moment. I barely managed to record today's show, but it was difficult. So, I hope to be back with you on Monday for Sara Smiles, but we'll see how my sleep is affected going forward and such.

Revisiting the Kings and Queens Episode from September 10, 2022 and Planning a Tribute to Ian Tyson, this Week on Come by the Hills!

Well, a new year is almost upon us, so in the spirit of reflection on the year that is past, I thought I'd present an encore presentation of the episode featuring songs about Kings and Queens which we did on Come by the Hills to commemorate the death of Queen Elizabeth II and the accession to the throne of King Charles III. Here in Canada, we are still a constitutional monarchy, and, I think it's fair to say that whether you believe in that or not, this was a big change and the end of one era and the beginning of a new one.
