Folkish Fun Once Again, this Week on Come by the Hills!

Hi there! Sara Hillis here to tell you what's coming up for you in just over twelve hours as I'm posting this. It's another episode of come by the Hills! I hope to bring it to you live, but it depends on the rather stormy weather today. It may make more sense to do a voice-tracked show for you this week, but hey. Maybe I'll get some of The Snow Man's nerve and just broadcast live in spite of the thunder! Anyway, regardless of how it's coming to you, I promise you a new show today, filled with great Folk music with a Celtic sound!

Deep Dive gets Back On The Chain Gang

This week on Deep Dive we play the music of the Pretenders fronted by Chrisie Hyne. We have breakfast in bed, we have brass in pocket, and we get back on the chain gang. All in all we enjoy some very good eighties rock.

Join me on Monday at 4 PM Eastern, 6 AM on Tuesday in Eastern Australia. Alternatively join me at 6 AM Eastern on Wednesday, or 8 PM in Eastern Australia.

Send me an email or a sound recording with your favourite band or artist, some of the songs you liked, and your memories of them. I'd love you to join me on the show.

King Records, Part 9: Federal Records, Part 1: 1951-54 this week on The Juke In The Back!

The Juke In The Back” focuses on the “soul that came before rock n’ roll,” the records that inspired Elvis, Buddy Holly, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and countless others.
This week, it’s part 9 of a multi-part feature on the great King Record Label, out of Cincinnati. Syd Nathan, who began putting out records under the King logo in 1943, developed King as a hillbilly music label. After seeing the sales potential in the Rhythm & Blues market, Nathan launched the Queen Records subsidiary in 1945, but folded it into King in 1947 and transferred his R&B acts over.
