Canada Day Left-overs and the End of an Era, this Week on Come by the Hills!

Hello one and hello all! Sara Hillis here to tell you what's happening this week on Mushroom FM's premier Folk and Celtic music show, known affectionately as Come by the Hills. We'll have a few Canada Day left-overs as well as a special birthday request, and a lot of great music for your enjoyment as usual. We'll also be celebrating the end of an era, because we're changing things up here in Sara-land. Yes, to save my Sundays and my sanity (what little there is to be saved of course,) Come by the Hills is moving!

Here's what's coming up on Small World, only on Mushroom Escape

Are you sitting comfortably? If not, then maybe you have ants in your pants or beans in your ears. Well, whether you’re comfortable or not, sitting or otherwise, it’s time for me to remind you that Small World, the Kids’ programme for the whole family, is coming up again on Mushroom Escape. There are two fun-filled hours and I can’t wait to bring it to you.
