The last of Laurie's songs this week on The Early Years!

After you've enjoyed Come By The Hills with Sara Hillis with songs about Kings and Queens, 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.

Songs Featuring Kings and Queens, this Week on Come by the Hills!

Hello! Sara Hillis here once again to tell you about this week's episode of Come by the Hills, Mushroom FM's Folk and Celtic music show. We are witnessing a moment in history with the death of Queen Elizabeth II and the accession of King Charles III. I wanted to do at least a little something to pay tribute to this moment, and whether you're a royalist or not, I think you'll enjoy the selection of songs about kings and queens of all kinds that I have for you this time around.

It's a Labour of Love for Labour Day, this Week on Come by the Hills!

Hello! Sara Hillis here to tell you about this week's all new edition of Come by the Hills, Mushroom FM's Folk and Celtic music show! This week, it's all about work and workers, the people who love them, and the consequences of doing certain jobs. It's Labour Day Weekend here in North America, and as I try to do every year, I found several songs for you about people who hold various occupations and the ups and downs of these lives. Of course, there is a wee bit of unionizing in there too, as the unions have traditionally been a preoccupation of the modern Folk movement.

A Tribute and more of A double celebration this week on The Early Years!

The show begins with the song that will tell you what tomorrow's date is, and has the longest instrumental intro of any song I know. Why? Just because!
