It's Another John Barleycorn Special, this Week on Come by the Hills!

Yes, this week we're pulling out all the stops on Mushroom FM's Premier Celtic Music Show, because we'll be featuring a number of different versions of a folk song, likely English in origin, which is all about the planting, harvesting and distilling of barley. Barley has been a staple of human existence for thousands of years. It, along with wheat and other grains, was why we gave up hunting and gathering and became stay-at-home farmers first, and then built civilizations.

It's the final part tonight on The Early Years!

Join me for The Early Years where you'll enjoy the best variety of music from the 50s and 60s with an occasional nod to other decades, including music from before the rock era which is generally accepted as starting in 1955.
It's mostly 60s again this week as I conclude my survey of Canadian popular music that I started four weeks ago on Canada Day. This week I pick up the survey where I left off last week in 1968, continue to 1969 and finish with two songs from 1970. Many of these songs will be familiar and you may not realize that the artists are Canadian.

Goodbye Stranger, it's a logical, Supertrampical Mosen Explosion

Once again, the time has come for another four hours of chat, conviviality, and some of the best music ever made, as The Mosen Explosion is let loose on a suspecting world. It can hardly be unsuspecting anymore, given how long this soup has been going on.

It’s the birthday of Richard Davies from Supertramp on 22 July, so what a great excuse to make this classic band our featured group on this week’s show.
