The countdown to the Countdown. We are crackers at Christmas

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, and there’s not long left for you to exercise your franchise! You have until the end of Thursday US Eastern time to vote for your top 10 holiday songs. Just like all the politicians say every time there's an election, this is our most important countdown ever. The consequences of voting are enormous. You contribute to our top 100 countdown which we play this Saturday, and you also score yourself an invitation to our Christmas party.

Down Beat Records this afternoon 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.

Under a Winter's Moon, this Week on Come by the Hills!

Hello! Sara Hillis here to give you the skinny (the scoop? the straight goods?) on what's coming up this week on Come by the Hills, Mushroom FM's Folk and Celtic music show. For most of the first couple of hours, we'll be featuring a brand new seasonal offering from Loreena McKennitt, this time recorded live, while sprinkled throughout the show and especially in the third hour, we'll feature songs about Winter itself from artists such as Gordon Lightfoot, Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen and The Kingston Trio. We'll even have a bit of Jethro Tull!

More Christmas holiday favourites and non-Christmas music from the 50s and 60s this week on the Early Years!

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 me for The Early Years, 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.
Nothing too demanding on this week's show. I'll play more of my Christmas favourites with a 50s focus and some non-Christmas music from the 50s and 60s.

The countdown to the Countdown. Round yon version, choosing which version of a popular holiday song we'll play

As always, time seems to fly by at this time of year. You only have until 11:59 PM North American Eastern time next Thursday to cast your votes in Mushroom FM’s holiday countdown and receive an invitation to our Christmas party where we play the top 100 on Saturday 17 December starting at 7 AM Eastern time.

From a listener’s perspective, you may think that this show would be an easy one for the fun guys to prepare for. After all, the listeners are in charge of what songs make the chart, so that’s the music taken care of, right? Well, it’s not quite that simple.

Coming up on Saturday at the Described Movies: The Christmas Star, One Magic Christmas, and Mister Magoo's Christmas Carol.

Deep Dive tells me sweet little lies

The passing of singer-songwriter Christine Macvie last week caused me to reach back into the vault for the programme on Fleetwood Mac. We make lovin' fun, have sweet dreams and hear about Rainin.
