The Song Remembers When Goes All Over

What can I say? The show today is full of all sorts of songs with memories. Songs that tell stories, songs about food, and, I think, a song that our own Sarah Hillis may have been involved with if I remember right. Melissa will be back next week, but I hope you all enjoy what I've come up with. I think there's some great stuff here, and a lot that should have been there that just wouldn't fit. Enjoy the show!

"The Great Canadian Setlist" continues this week on The Early Years!

After you've enjoyed Come By The Hills with Sara Hillis, tomorrow afternoon from 02:00 PM to 05:00 PM, don't touch that dial, device, PC, Mac, smart speaker or tablet and join me for The Early Years where and when you'll hear the best music from the first half of the Rock and Roll era with nods to other decades and genres.

Coming up on Saturday at the Described Movies: Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull and The Jewel of the Nile.

Big Joe Turner, Part 1 - 1938-50 this week 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.
This week, the "Juke In The Back" is loaded with nothing but the great recordings of Big Joe Turner, the "Boss Of The Blues."
Part one covers Joe Turner's early years from his Kansas City beginnings to his big breakthrough in NYC at the first "From Spirituals To Swing" show in 1938 to just before he signed to Atlantic Records in 1951.

Deep Dive has a total eclipse of the heart

This week we enjoy the outstanding talent and powerful voice of Welsh singer Bonnie Tyler. We have heartache, get lost in France, and hold out for a hero.

Tune in at 4 PM Monday Eastern, which is 6 AM Tuesday in Eastern Australia. Or at 6 AM Wednesday Eastern, which is 8 PM in Eastern Australia. Just firmly instruct that SmartSpeaker of yours to play Mushroom FM and you will be there in the wink of an eye.

Deep Dive, where we focus on one artist for one hour, can only be heard on Mushroom FM, home of the fun guys.

Canada Day Celebrations finish, and a new theme begins this week on The Early Years!

After you've enjoyed Come By The Hills with Sara Hillis, tomorrow afternoon from 02:00 PM to 05:00 PM, don't touch that dial, device, PC, Mac, smart speaker or tablet and join me for The Early Years where and when you'll hear the best music from the first half of the Rock and Roll era with nods to other decades and genres.
I finish playing the #1 songs in Canada on Canada Day between 1976 and 1989.

Coming up on Saturday at the Described Movies: Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade and Romancing the Stone.

From this Saturday at 12am Eastern, that’s 4pm Saturday in NZ, 2pm in Sydney and 5am in the UK, and repeated every four hours throughout the day, it’s the described movies Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade from 1989 and Romancing the Stone from 1984.
Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade is a 1989 American action-adventure film directed by Steven Spielberg from a screenplay by Jeffrey Boam, based on a story by George Lucas and Menno Meyjes.

Frankie Lymon and The Teenagers this week 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.
We throw the word "influential" around a lot on the Juke In The Back, but very few groups can actually claim to have started a sub-genre based on their lead singer. The Teenagers Featuring Frankie Lymon were the first of the "kiddie" lead groups to sing for a teenaged audience. Their tunes had teen themes and when mixed with Lymon's vocals, a brand-new Rock n' Roll vocal group sound was created.

Deep Dive gets the look

This week on Deep Dive we enjoy the talents of Swedish band Roxette. We go for a joyride, are sleeping in my car, and spending my time.

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 demand that your SmartSpeaker of choice play Mushroom FM and you will be there in a trice. Deep Dive, where we focus on one artist for one hour, heard exclusively on mushroom FM, home of the fun guys.

It's Canada Day, this Week on Come by the Hills!

Hello! Sara Hillis here to tell you about this week's edition of Come by the Hills, the Folk and Celtic music show. Saturday, July 1, is Canada Day, so as we do every year, we'll be celebrating with Canadian songs, stories and more. So, join me for three hours of Folkish Canadiana! The show isn't live this week, and it will not be uploaded to Mixcloud due to licensing restrictions, but I hope you'll enjoy it.
