Encore! Encore! this Week on Come by the Hills!

Hello! Sara Hillis here to tell you what's in store for this week on Come by the Hills. Due to a rather busy schedule for me this weekend, I'm presenting an encore presentation of our Paddy Molomey tribute episode from October 16, 2021. This episode was in the replay slot for this past Tuesday because of the We're With U concert which was in our usual Saturday slot last week, and it will be there again because of my schedule for this week.

The Early Years meets Easy Street this week on Mushroom FM!

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 Scott Best and me for a very special show when The Early Years meets Easy Street, 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 been a long time since I've been able to say that but you know what John Lennon said, "Life is what happens while you're busy making other plans".

Deep Dive gets rickrolled

This week on Deep Dive we enjoy the powerful voice of UK singer Rick Astley. We hear that he's never gonna give you up, that he has angels on his side, and that she wants to dance with me. And of course, we hear about Rickrolling. What is Rickrolling you ask? Well, you'll have to tune in to find out.

We're with U, our radiothon for Ukraine, available on-demand from the Mushroom FM website

On 16 April, the online blind community raised over 85,000 USD as we united for blind people in Ukraine, and those who have become refugees because of Russia's invasion.

We broadcast a concert for over 11 hours, in which we heard performances from more than 110 blind musicians and a few allies.

Listeners were in awe of the talent so generously donated by the performers. Many have asked if there might be an album. We would love to see this happen so we can raise even more money, please watch this space.

We're With U, and A Replay on the Replay, this Week on Come by the Hills!

Well, today's the day! We're With U, the virtual concert in support of blind Ukrainians, starts in just a few short hours at 2:00 PM Eastern. This means that there will be no Come by the Hills in its original time slot. However, where the replay should go, we'll have something from the archives from October 16, 2021. It will be our tribute to Paddy Moloney of the chieftains.

So, be sure to catch We're With U today at 2:00 PM Eastern, and check out Come by the Hills on Tuesday at 5:00 AM Eastern! Please give what you can to support the We're With U cause!
