Songs about pleasant places this week on The Early Years!

After you've enjoyed Come By The Hills with Sara Hillis (a replay of her April 2nd show due to COVID - get better soon), 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.

It's Another Encore Presentation, this Week on Come by the Hills!

Hello hello! Sara Hillis here with sad news to report, I won't be doing a new episode of Come by the Hills this weekend. I have caught Covid somehow, and it's messing with my energy levels and my voice. So, I've pulled a show from our archives from April 2 of this year. I'll also keep you posted as to Sara Smiles as Monday gets closer.

I'm doing alright, but hour to hour it's hard to know how I'm going to feel just now. So, thanks for your indulgence, and I hope not to be away too long.

Deep Dive drinks rum and coca-cola

Tune in at 4 PM Eastern Monday, which is 6 AM Tuesday in Eastern Australia. Or at 6 AM Eastern Wednesday, which is 8 PM in Eastern Australia. Just ask your SmartSpeaker - nicely mind - to play Mushroom FM and it will whisk you there in a trice.
