Folkish Fun in Almost-real Time, this Week on Come by the Hills!

Hello! Sara Hillis here to tell you about this week's all new episode of Come by the Hills. I'll be playing our usual mix of great Folk and Celtic music, including a three-song set from one of Loreena McKennitt's albums on the occasion of its upcoming release on vinyl. I myself do not understand this new vinyl craze, but it gives me a good excuse to dip into this album a bit, so why not? I'll also play a song by Stan Rogers which was mentioned to me recently by a listener, and of course there will be Me Music as well.

A double celebration this week on The Early Years!

After you've enjoyed Come By The Hills with Sara Hillis, 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.

Elvis’ Rhythm & Blues Influences this afternoon 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.
45 years ago last week, we lost the “King Of Rock n’ Roll. Much has been written about Elvis’ enormous impact and popularity over the years, but it’s almost impossible to overstate the cultural shift that took place as he rose to fame in 1956.
Elvis was a musical sponge. He absorbed all the music that moved him and those around him, from Country and Hillbilly to Gospel, Pop, R&B and Blues.

A very special celebration this week on The Early Years!

After you've enjoyed Come By The Hills with Sara Hillis, unfortunately for her, another COVID caused replay, 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.
I'm dedicating this week's show to my friends, Hank and Marian in Ottawa as they're celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary today. Nancy and I were there!
