it's Canada Day--Almost, this Week on Come by the Hills!

Yes, Sara Hillis here once again to let you know that since Wednesday, July 1 is Canada Day here in, well, Canada, I'm going to be live tonight at 8:00 PM Eastern with three hours of Canadian Folk and Celtic music for your enjoyment, and perhaps for your edification.

We've got songs about history, songs about places, and songs that celebrate the fact that, as The Arrogant Worms say, Canada's really big!

Deep Dive walks 500 miles

This week Deep Dive features those politically active Scotish twins The Proclaimers. We join them to walk 500 miles, be on the way to happiness, Get lucky, and receive a letter from America.

Deep Dive features one artist with one focus for one hour. Join me at 4 PM Eastern on Monday, 6 AM on a Tuesday in eastern Australia. Or at the far more civilised time for me of 6 AM Wednesday Eastern, which is 8 PM in Eastern Australia.

Last weekend I bought myself a small barbecue (or grill) to go in our caravan. Over the years many people have asked me what sort of barbecue they should buy, along with tips and tricks for using one, particularly in the context of eyes-free operation, so this week on the show, i thought I'd talk through the different types available, their pros and cons, as well as a few tips and gadgets that are helpful in getting started.
