It's St. Andrew's Day This Week on Come By The Hills!

November 30th is coming up, and for Scots at home and abroad, this means St. Andrew's Day. He is the apostle who is credited with bringing Christianity to the area of the world we now call Scotland, and so over the years, his day has become a day to celebrate Scottish culture, and with that culture, of course, comes music!

Lowell Fulson this week on The Juke in the Back

This week, the “Juke In The Back” spotlights Lowell Fulson, one of the blues’ most versatile and vastly underrated talents. In the late 1940s, Fulson stormed the charts with his first hit “Three O’Clock Blues,” a song that B.B. King would take to the top of the charts in 1951. Fulson started the 1950s with a bang, scoring six charted hits for Swingtime Records in 1950 alone. By ’54, he was on Checker Records out of Chicago with a song that would be covered by Elvis in 1960, “Reconsider Baby.” Fulson wrote many of his own songs and was a major inspiration to both B.B.

There's Something Even Funnier Coming Up on Funny Fridays!

"Nock nock!"
"Who's there?"
"Sara."
"Sara who?"
"Sara guest host in the house?"

Yes, indeed there is. I'm sitting in this week on Funny Fridays for Bruce, but don't worry. Though he's off this week, the laughs are very much on. We've got three hours of songs and sketches to keep you chortling through your entire weekend, so tune in tonight at the usual time, 9:00 PM Eastern, and see what it's like when I take over the laugh factory for a night. It should be quite fun.

We're playing What Sounds Good This Week on Come By The Hills!

Yes, since we've done a couple of themed shows recently, I thought it would be nice to simply get back to basics and do what Mushroom FM does best, Celtic style! So, I dug through my collection of Celtic musical goodness and found some of the best of the best this week for your listening pleasure. We've got some classics from Planxty and De Dannan, as well as a great Classic Rock Song as a Celtic Cover. In short, the motto for this week's show is: "WEll, that sounds good. Let's play that song!"

R&B Novelty Songs this week on The Juke in the Back

The juke is jumpin’ this week with a salute to the lighter side of classic 1950s rhythm and blues.  These “novelty” R&B tunes come from jump blues masters from Louis Jordan to Bull Moose Jackson and all the side-splittin’ jive in-between.  You’ll hear all about Richard Berry, Wynonie Harris, Andre Williams and Dusty Fletcher getting in trouble with the law as well as a wacky song about crazy food.  Join Matt The Cat for a hilarious look at the “soul that came before rock n’ roll” on “Juke In The Back”, Saturday afternoon at 03:00 PM Eastern, with an encore presentation Thursday morning

I'll be back inside the Studio at 2, and boy, have I got an awesome treat for you. It's the best of country music old and new, you'll be tappin' them thar toes before I'm through.

So if you like country music as I do, then please join me on the mighty 'shroom at 2. For the best of country music old and new, rubber ducky I am awfully fond of you.

Y'all are invited to a Tennessee Mosen Explosion

What do Andy Murray and The Mosen Explosion have in common? Send your answers on a postcard, or wait until the end of this announcement for the answer.

It's time once again for another Mosen Explosion, as we continue our whirlwind whistle stop tour of the United States. This week, we'll be broadcasting from the very room, the very room I say, where Bonnie spent many of her teenage years as a teenager. We're rockin' the Explosion from Lebanon Tennessee, and what a fun show we have in store.

Memphis Slim, the “Ambassador Of The Blues”, this week on The Juke in the Back

Memphis Slim dubbed himself the “Ambassador Of The Blues” and for good reason. He spread the gospel of America’s music around the world during his almost 50 year career. This week, Matt The Cat and the “Juke In The Back” take a look at Slim’s prodigious contribution to the genre. He began recording as Pete Chatman (his real name is John Chatman) in 1940 and by the end of the year was already known as Memphis Slim, a name given to him by a producer at Bluebird Records.

Reflections in The Shed

Oh my! Saturday night isn’t too far away!
This means, from 11pm Eastern on Saturday, that’s now 5Pm Sunday in New Zealand, and 4am in the UK I’m back for another four fun filled hours live in the Shed.
The live and loud segment is back and so is the triple threat.
We heard only just over a day ago that Leonard Cohen sadly passed away at the age of 82, so he will be featuring in both of those segments, but I’ll be happy to play any Leonard Cohen requests if you have them.
