As always, tune in on Sunday night at 8:00 pM Eastern, or Friday morning at 4:00 AM Eastern, 9:00 AM in the UK and Ireland!

it's Almost New Years, this Week on Come by the Hills!

Tonight at 8:00 PM Eastern, join me for a celebration of everything that makes New Years great! it's a time to reflect, resolve, and of course do a little imbibing as well. The show won't be live tonight unfortunately, but I'll be hanging out on the Twitter and such throughout the duration of the show while I work and plan and scheme to get ready for the annual New Years gathering which my husband and I (hem hem) host for our friends.

'Tis the Night before the Night before Christmas Celtic-style, this Week on Come by the Hills!

Yes, it's finally come round at last, that season of holly, ivy, mistletoe, merriment, and music of course! So this week, we've got Christmas tunes gallore on Come by the Hills. We've got salutes to some of my favourite folkish festive albums and artists, some Christmas comedy, and our annual reading of "A Child's Christmas in Wales" by Dylan Thomas. We've got carols, snow, and the all-important wassailing of the figgy duff. And no, I don't mean the Newfoundland folk-rock band either.

Winter is Coming, this Week on Come by the Hills!

You might want to stay tuned after the Mushroom Fm annual holiday countdown, because after all the Christmas crackers have been pulled and all the silly toys and sillier jokes have fallen out, Come by the Hills will be paying homage to the shortest day of the year in the northern hemisphere with wintry themed music. We'll have all our usual features with a snowy twist, and you'll certainly want to get out the hot cocoa (or perhaps something stronger) for this one!

More Great Celtic Music, this Week on Come by the Hills!

Yes, it's that time of the week already, and again, the show will be broadcast live! In fact, unless circumstances prevent it, Come by the Hills will become a live and interactive show here on Mushroom Fm from now on! We'll be fulfilling a couple of requests this time around, celebrating the birthday of a great poet in "me music," and generally playing some amazing music from some amazing artists.

It's alive! This Week on Come by the Hills!

Yes, for the first time in the storied history of Come by the Hills, Mushroom Fm's premier Celtic music show will be going live, like really live, at 8:00 pM Eastern on Sunday night! Experience the excitement and unpredictability of a live show combined with the usual standard of fine folk and Celtic music you've come to expect! We'll have some Scottish music to belatedly celebrate St. Andrew's Day, some festive selections, as well as our usual features.

Getting a Teeny Bit Festive, this Week on Come by the Hills!

Yes, once again, it's time for another episode of Come by the Hills, Mushroom Fm's premier Celtic music show! We've got our usual eclectic selection of great music along with our usual features, and we're slowly introducing festive favourites into the mix. One of the best things I've always loved about the holiday season is the lead-up to it, so over the next few weeks, we'll slowly be increasing the amount of holiday content in the show until our huge extravaganza on the eve of Christmas Eve!

Sara Smiles Going Live on Friday!

This is a very big deal! This coming Friday, November 23, 2018, is a special day on Sara Smiles, because for the first time ever, I'm going to do a completely live and unpredictable show! We'll have two hours of music from the four decades of magic mushroom memories as usual, but beyond that, one never knows what might happen. So, if you're interested in witnessing the insanity, feel free to tune in at 12:00 PM Eastern time on Friday and tweet and email me to your heart's content!

come along or Come again, this Week on Come by the Hills!

Yes, before you know it, it will be time once again for Mushroom Fm's premier Celtic music show, known more familiarly as Come by the Hills! Whether you listen every week or whether this will be your first time tuning in, there'll be something for everyone. We'll have great Celtic music and all our usual features, including a brand new entry in "Me Music," this one composed by me at the suggestion of a listener! We'll have music to make you laugh, cry, chill out and stomp your feet. We can't do too much chilling out however, as that's The Snowman's job on Moon Dreams.

Lest We Forget, this Week on Come by the Hills

It's time once again to mark Remembrance Day on Mushroom Fm's premier Celtic Music show. We have several folk songs in honour of both World Wars as well as some very special poetry from a poet called Jack White, who once held the position of Regimental Bard with the Regimental Pipes and Drums of the Calgary Highlanders. I hope you'll join me as we join with millions of people around the world to commemorate the hundredth anniversary of the end of the First World War and pay tribute to those who have fought in other wars over the years.
