It's All Things Joni--Mitchell, that is--This Week on Come by the Hills!

Yes, the long-awaited first volume of Joni Mitchell's archival material has been released, and I have it! Spanning the years 1963-1967, it covers her beginnings as a Folk musician among other Folk musicians as well as her development as the amazing song-writer we've come to know over the years. If you love early Joni, you'll love this boxed set! I'll be featuring it this week and focusing in on the massive amount of live material included here, and that won't even scratch the surface!

It's a miscellany this week on The Early Years!

Affter you've enjoyed Mosen At Large, Mushroom FM's premier tech magazine and opinion show, tomorrow afternoon from 02:00 to 05:00, during which I hope all your questions get answered and all your opinions get aired, don't touch that dial, device, PC, Mac or smart speaker and join me in The Early Years where and when you'll enjoy the best music from Rock and Roll's Golden Age (its first quarter century) with an occasional nod to other decades and genres.
No nods to other decades or genres this week but a variety of things.

Horse races, Elections, and Democracy Sausages for breakfast on Damo's all Day Breakfast.

this week on Damo's All Day Breakfast, there's lots to talk about. It's an election weekend in my home state of Queensland so we'll talk accessible voting, and the slightly odd practice in Australia of the Democracy Sausage.
We'll also talk about the Melbourne cup, which is widely regarded as the race that stops the nation. There's another in our series of aussie cover versions, and the usual mix of great music and friendly chat.

Have your say ahead of Mosen At Large. I read the news today, oh boy!

Kia ora Mosen at largers. We’ve received some great contributions ahead of this weekend’s show, but never fear, there is always room for yours. So what are you waiting for? Send me some audio, write me some email. If we didn’t hear from our immense listening family, well, the show would go boom.

Instead of Sara Smiles, It's Gary Guffaws!

Seriously, thanks so much to Gary G. for stepping in at the last minute yesterday to cover Sara Smiles! He'll be with you again today as I will be busy getting things sorted at the apartment after the pest treatment we had. We decided to stay away for the night just to be safe for us and the dog, and will be having fun today getting everything put back or at least moved so we ourselves can move around more freely.

All being well, I should be back with you for Wednesday's show, but in the meantime, Gary will keep you company.

No Sara Smiles on Monday

Hi all,

This is just to let you know that Sara Smiles will not be heard on Monday. Life is a little chaotic just now around this house, and tomorrow promises to be very busy. I hope to return as usual on Tuesday, but will keep you posted as things progress. We are attempting to get rid of a roach infestation in our apartment, and it's going to involve some people coming with very serious chemicals which will require us to be out of the place while they do their thing.
