Revisiting the Super Blood Wolf Moon, this Week on Come by the Hills!

I thought I'd dip into the show archives for another encore presentation this week. Last year at about this time in January, there was a very unique full moon event which we saluted in fine style on Mushroom FM's premier Celtic music show! It was called the Super Blood Wolf Moon, and if you want to know what all those words mean, you'll have to tune in tomorrow at 8:00 PM Eastern, or catch the replay on Friday at 4:00 AM Eastern! There'll be songs about the moon and of course lots of moon-related banter.

Songs about mining and minerals this week on The Early Years!

join me for The Early Years where you'll hear the best music from Rock and Roll's Golden Age (its first quarter century) with an occasional nod to other decades and genres.
It's more than a nod to other decades and genres this week as I begin what will be a 2-part, listener-suggested theme, "songs about mining and minerals". Before that, however, I'll pay a brief tribute to two entertainers who passed away in the last couple of weeks.

A show of themes and variations this week on The Early Years!

join me for The Early Years where you'll hear the best music from Rock and Roll's Golden Age (its first quarter century) with an occasional nod to other decades and genres.
I have a variety of things this week. In hour 1, it's the final part of my 9-part, listener-suggested theme begun Nov. 2, 2019, "Seconds" (the songs not the time interval). If an artist's first song reached #1, what did their second song do?
I'll pick up the theme in January 1976 and continue to the end of what I consider to be Rock and Roll's Golden Age, its first quarter century, 1979.

Revisiting Sandy Denny, this Week on Come by the Hills!

Among other lovely holiday gifts, I was also given an unlovely one--that is, a cold. While it is on the wane, my voice is still not quite ready for the demands of a three-hour live broadcast in the later part of the evening. So, while I continue to fight these symptoms, I thought we'd look back at our Sandy Denny show. it is appropriate for this week, as her birthday is on January 6. IN fact, I produced the show in June due to a mistaken reading of that date. So, here's my chance to rectify the mistake.
