First, I'd like to thank Bruce Toews for filling in last week during my absence. I very much appreciate his willingness to pic up the show on the rare occasions that I can't do it. Enjoy Old Time Radio on Mushroom Escape, Bruce's passion.

We're Live Again, this Week on Come by the Hills!

You've waited and waited, putting up with encores and voice-tracked shows and all, and finally, we're ready for the first live show of the new year on Come by the Hills!

This is all still new to me, but I enjoy the challenge and I enjoy hanging out with you on a Sunday night as we listen to some amazing Celtic tunes!
