This Week on Come by the Hills, We've Got Celtic Canadiana and a Whole Lot More!

Yes, the Celtic craziness that is Come by the Hils is back for another week of great music and fun features. As well as "Me Music" and Fiddlin' Around," we've got a "Celtic Cover" which is sure to please. Yes, it's a scottish band's take on a piece of Canadian music history. IN fact, you may have heard this song done by other artists over the years, but tonight, you'll get the original Canadian version along with a very nice folky version performed by the Scottish folk trio, North Sea Gas.

The best 50s and 60s music anywhere on The Early Years

Well, I'm back from The Louisiana Hayride and ready to spin some great music from the 50s and 60s on The Early Years. I have an abundance of twin spins including one that morphs into a tripple play and lots of chart information, memories and reminiscences about and inspired by the music.
You can contact me any time by e-mail at with comments about the show and suggestions for future shows.

On this week's Mosen Explosion, it's time

Time goes by so slowly, and time can do so much. A week is a long time in politics. Time heals all wounds. Ah, time. It plays such a big role in our lives. And at 2 PM Eastern, 7 PM in the UK, it’s time, yet again, for another epic Mosen Explosion.

It's Friday Fun on The Sara Hillis Show!

Today on The Sara Hillis Show, as well as our usual mix of magic mushroom memories and mediocre musings from me, we're going to devote our back-to-back music mixes to novelty songs! Yes, on this and every Friday, we'll be dipping into the novelty vault for fun and interesting things which are guaranteed to make you laugh, or at least just scratch your head and say: "Now why on earth did they decide to do this one?" Today, we have some Spike Jones and some Little Jimmy Dickens in the first hour, and in the second hour, we're making a departure to do what I've always wanted to do.

On Friday's Smorgasbord, location sharing, summoning Siri, great music and more

The weekend is almost here, but before you can Basque in it, you must first endure another edition of the Smorgasbord with Jonathan Mosen.

On the Friday edition, we learn about a new way to share your location with others, even if they don’t use the same type of phone as you.

On yesterday’s show, I asked if you’d ever sent an accidental email or text to the wrong person. Listeners respond on today’s show.

We learn about the science and technology that makes summoning Siri possible, even without pressing the button.

New day, new OS, new Smorgasbord, new government?

If you tune into the Smorgasbord with me, Jonathan Modem, at 3 Eastern time, be that 3 AM in the morning, 3 PM in the afternoon, 3 AM in the afternoon, or 3 PM in the morning US Eastern time, you are going to be rewarded with an historic show of historic significant that will undoubtedly go down in history for being historic.

First, it’s the first ever Smorgasbord coming to you live from the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. I’ll be talking about that, and the overwhelming disappointment of the update if you install it in New Zealand.

Thankful Thursday and a Tribute to a Canadian Musical Icon Tomorrow on The Sara Hillis Show!

Today in Canada, we learned of the death of one of our greatest poets and musicians, a man who has challenged politicians, changed people's hearts and whose music has been the sound-track of many of our lives. Gord Downie of the Canadian band called The Tragically Hip has died at the age of 53. He had been diagnosed with a brain tumour and his band embarked on a farewell tour last year which culminated in a huge concert in their home town of Kingston Ontario.
