Lots to Celebrate, this Week on Come by the Hills!

Hi there. Sara Hillis here to tell you about this week's edition of Come by the Hills, Mushroom FM's premier Folk and Celtic music show. There's lots to celebrate as we go to air, including the fact that Sunday, June 21, is National Indigenous People's Day here in Canada. To mark this, we'll be featuring the life and work of Buffy Sainte-Marie throughout the show. We'll be sure and play a few Quebecois tunes as well in honour of St. Jean-Baptiste Day which is coming up on Tuesday.

A special edition of The Mosen Explosion in loving memory of Dame Vera Lynn

Dame Vera Lynn has died aged 103. That is certainly a life well lived, and yet like many others her death has deeply saddened me.

Dame Vera was a part of the soundtrack of my childhood. My parents were fans, so I grew up listening to her music. I loved it then, and I love it now. Her pure voice, perfect diction, and plaintive songs of hope still move me. She has been a part of the soundtrack of my adulthood too, in particular, "We'll Meet Again" was played at the end of my dad's funeral service.
