It's Guy Fawkes Friday Fun Tomorrow on the Sara Hillis Show!

Please to remember the third of november? No, wait. That's not right, but as the fifth of November is on Sunday, I thought we'd celebrate that most British of holidays with a few British novelty songs on the Friday Fun version of The Sara Hillis Show. But don't worry. No effogies will be burned in the production of this episode. We may also talk about the gun powder plot itself as well. Was Fawkes just a fall guy? Who knows? All I do know is that I hope you'll join me tomorrow at noon or midnight Eastern time for the Fawkesy Friday Fun edition of The Sara Hillis Show!

Halloween Music is Haunting Come by the Hills this Week!

Wel, it's that time of the year once again, the time when the veil between the worlds grows thin and spirits walk abroad among men! At least, that's what the celts believed about the time we now call Halloween. In accordance with this, I'm playing songs and tales about murder, mayhem, myth and even more this week on Come by the Hills! We won't be having our usual features, but who needs them when the music's this good? We've got Steeleye Span, Stan Rogers, Pentangle, Kate Rusby, Artisan, Loreena McKennitt, Fairport Convention and so much more that it's downright scary, I tell you!

It's an Early Halloween Addition of Friday Fun Today on the Sara Hillis Show!

We've got lots of great music as usual today on The Sara Hillis Show, but if you're already in the spooktacular Halloween spirit, we'll have a couple of novelty bits on today's back-to-back music mixes which should give you a wicked start to your weekend. So get ready to howel with delight and hang out with me today at 12:00 PM Eastern or on Saturday at the witching hour. That's 12:00 AM Eastern. You'll have a scarily-good time! Mwahahahahahahahahaha!

It's Thankful Thursday with a Listener-inspired Playlist Tomorrow on The Sara Hillis Show!

"Wow!" you're saing. "That Sara is really on the ball today with her blog entry!" The truth is that if it weren't for a listener's lovely email, I wouldn't have had nearly as much to write about for tomorrow's show. However, Elizabeth emailed me with a tale of woe. She has been longing to hear some songs by Beth Nielsen Chapman, and she can't find her anywhere on iTunes in her region. So, we're going to devote part of our Thursday on The Sara Hillis Show to this amazing singer-songwriter.

We're Waffling on a Wednesday on The Sara Hillis Show!

I don't know if I'm as much of a waffling champion as our own Bonnie Mosen, but I think I'll give her a pretty good run for her money on today's Sara Hillis Show. We discuss right weather versus wrong weather, (please note that this has nothing to do with whether it's nice or nasty weather,) soap opera pets, flu vaccines, and of course my theory that I have which is mine that the Mushroom Pot computer wil one day simply take over the world! We also have quite a few longer songs in the playlist for some reason.

It's Tuesday on The Sara Hillis Show!

Yes, I know I'm stating the obvious, but there's nothing obvious about what's coming up on The Sara Hillis Show! We've got Ding-A-lings and Steely Dan, Frank Sinatra and Olivia Newton-Jan--er--John. we've got a lot of great music is what I mean to say, and of course my patented brand of crazy musings to go along with them. I even delve into my misspent youth in response to a Brian adams song! So, hang out with me if you're feeling brave or foolish or both. Today at 12:00 PM Eastern or tomorrow at 12:00 aM Eastern! Whatever time you choose, I know you'll have fun.

It's Another Monday on The Sara Hillis Show!

I know you've missed it over the weekend, the random musings and rockin' music that is The Sara Hillis Show. Well, the good news is that it's back for another five days of fun! The bad news is that it's back for another five days of fun!

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.

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.

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.
