Rough Guides and Smooth Grooves this Week on Come by the Hills!

Grooves? Well, alright, so I'm borrowing a bit from Paul Simon perhaps, but I think that Celtic music is groovy, so if you're tired of kicking down the cobble-stones and aren't getting anywhere talking to lamp-posts, and if you're looking for good solid folky fare, then tune in this week for Come by the Hills! I've recently purchased a few of the "Rough Guide" compilations and so have infused my Celtic collection with some interesting artists I have never heard before. We've got our usual features back again this week, and well, it'll just be a fun time, I tell you.

Marvin Phillips this week on The Juke In The Back

The Juke In The Back” focuses on the “soul that came before rock n’ roll,” the records that inspired Elvis, Buddy Holly, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and countless others.

The lights are on at the Mushroom Cap Lounge!

Join Jeff Molzow and Don Delorme TONIGHT! for the Mushroom Cap Lounge broadcast exclusively on #mushroomfm. In our first hour, we'll share a story about an over eager eating champion, along with some interesting facts from this week in history. During our second hour, we'll have a couple of movie reviews including Commuter and Unstoppable. You might even say that we are well trained for this... And during our 3rd hour, we'll be counting down the music from the year 1969. Of course, we'll be serving up the best music from the 50's 60's and 70's, along with some silly novelty tunes.
