Remembering a Legend One Last Time, this Week on Come by the Hills!

Hi there. Sara Hillis here, just popping up from the craziness of the holidays to let you know that on Saturday, December 30, Come by the Hills will be devoted entirely to the artistry and legacy of Gordon Lightfoot. Yes, once again, I'll be presenting the tribute show to this amazing song-writer and musician that was originally aired on May 6, 2023. I think this is the second time I've repeated the episode, but I'm really proud of it and I know it was particularly well-loved by many regular listeners to the Folk and Celtic music show here on Mushroom FM.

Jonathan's celebrating a quarter of a century on Internet radio, and you're welcome to share your memories

Hello! It’s Jonathan here. I hope you had a joyous Christmas.

As you may know, every year, I host a live broadcast to celebrate the end of the current year and the arrival of a new one, which comes first to New Zealand. I’ll be doing that once again this year at 9 PM on new year’s eve in New Zealand, which equates to 3 AM Eastern, and 8 AM in the UK on the morning of 31 December. This year though, it’s even more special.

Music and stories are Christmas traditions

After the presents have been opened, the turkey has been eaten (some of it at least), and it's Christmas night when you can hopefully enjoy a bit of well deserved down time. Why not pour a glass of your favourite Christmas cheer and join me for some Christmas traditions, tonight from 07:00 until 09:00 PM North American Eastern Time on Mushroom FM.

Come Celebrate a Cozy Christmas with the Carpenters!

Yes, it's that time of year again, a time brimming with festive traditions big and small. One of those traditions for many people is listening to the wonderful Christmas albums by the Carpenters. So if that's your particular cup of hot chocolate, then why not join me, Sara Hillis, at noon Eastern time on Christmas day for a two-hour journey through the Carpenters Christmas Collection? We'll hear A Christmas Portrait in the first hour, and then it's onto An Old-fashioned Christmas in the second hour.

Holiday Music and a Theme Song Surprise on The Song Remembers Wehn

Once again, I recorded The Song Remembers When much later than I wanted to. This worked out fine however, because it gave my husband, Mark, a chance to play with Suno AI and write a theme song for the show! If you tune in, you'll be able to hear this theme for the first time, and provide your comments. What do you think of it? Catchy? Fun? Horrible? An ear worm? You decide! @melissa@social.mushroomfm.com or melissa@mushroomfm.com. I look forward to hearing your reactions.

Join Jonathan, Bonnie and the bananas for a Mosen Family Christmas

Christmas is Coming Early to Come by the Hills!

It's almost time to wasail our bells off, because two days before Christmas, (that's this coming Saturday,) it'll be Christmas once again on Come by the Hills! Yes, we'll have traditional carols done in a Folky way, some humour, including a look at the tradition of Christmas Mumming in Newfoundland, and yet another version of "A Child's Christmas in Wales" by Dylan Thomas, this time performed by Canadian actor Cedric Smith with musical interludes by Loreena McKennitt.

Christmas day Aussie style

Christmas is celebrated around the world, but we do a few things differently in Australia. Kangaroos pull Santa's sleigh, we have to deal with summer heat and we drink wine in the sun. But we still eat too much for Christmas.
