Another Folkish Feast, this Week on Come by the Hills!

It's almost time for another episode of Come by the Hills! I'm Sara Hillis and I'm here to tell you that I've got three hours of fabulous Folk and Celtic music for you coming up in just a few short hours! The show won't be live today due to a rather busy weekend, but I've got a couple of great songs by Nancy Griffith, another teaser from the second volume of the Joni Mitchell Archives which will be released at the end of October, and even some new Me Music! So join me. Won't you?

The top 100 of 1971 begins 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 in 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.
Another countdown begins this week 10 years after the last one, this one from 1971. I'll start at #100 and get to #80. But before that, I'll play one more baseball song that I wish I'd remembered for the show two weeks ago.
