A Very Special Encore Presentation, this Week on Come by the Hills!

Hello, hello, and for everyone celebrating Pascha (Orthodox Easter,) Christ is risen! Sara Hillis here to tell you about a very special encore presentation of Come by the Hills airing this week. On the surface, it would seem that this particular show might be best forgotten, as it took place in March of this year when our server was down due to circumstances beyond our control. But for me, it's a very special show, because it helped to reinforce the feeling of community which is an integral part of Mushroom FM's reason for being.

Deep Dive honours Les Mckeown

This week on Deep Dive we had planned to feature US singer Meatloaf.

However during the week Les Mckeown, lead singer of the Bay City Rollers passed away suddenly at the age of 65. We will honour him this week with an encore programme which was made last September featuring the band.

The Bay City Rollers were an Edinburgh based boy band which became hugely popular inthe 1970s. We will hear them sing Bye Bye Baby, hear them give a little love, and hear them sing Shang-A-Lang.

Encore Presentation Time, for the Next Two Weeks on Come by the Hills

Greetings! Sara Hillis here again to tell you that for the next two weeks on Come by the Hills, we'll be dipping into the recent archives for a couple of fun episodes. This week, it'll be the Loreena McKennitt and Live Music episode from February, and next week, you'll get to hear the show that almost wasn't from March. I had intended to do a live show this week, but I slept badly last night and don't feel I have the energy. Next week, it's Orthodox Easter, and I'll be doing a lot of services over the weekend with my church.
