One More Rerun, this Week on Come by the Hills!

Hello again! Sara Hillis here to tell you that we will actually be replaying the Come by the Hills show from April 2, 2022 this weekend. I had promised you that one two weeks ago, but instead, I ended up playing the show from June 4 by mistake. I'm hopeful that this will be the final rerun in this covid-inspired series of encore presentations, but only time will tell. I am feeling mostly better, but I do have a lingering cough which still affects my voice at times.

Coming up on Saturday at the Described Movies: My Fair Lady and Dumbo.

From this Saturday at 12am Eastern, that’s 4pm Saturday in NZ, 2pm in Sydney and 5am in the UK, and repeated every four hours throughout the day, it’s
the described movies My Fair Lady from 1964, and Dumbo from 1941.
My Fair Lady is a 1964 American musical drama film adapted from the 1956 Lerner and Loewe stage musical based on George Bernard Shaw's 1913 stage play Pygmalion.

Elvis’ Rhythm & Blues Influences 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.
45 years ago this week, we lost the “King Of Rock n’ Roll. Much has been written about Elvis’ enormous impact and popularity over the years, but it’s almost impossible to overstate the cultural shift that took place as he rose to fame in 1956.
Elvis was a musical sponge. He absorbed all the music that moved him and those around him, from Country and Hillbilly to Gospel, Pop, R&B and Blues.

Deep Dive celebrates Olivia Newton-John

This week on Deep Dive we reach back into the vault for a programme I made in late 2020 to celebrate the life and music of Olivia Newton-John, a well-regarded Australian singer. We get physical, don't play B 17, and honestly love you. Olivia Newton-John died last week at the age of 73, and for myself and many Australians, as well as others around the world, it is important to celebrate her music and life.

More songs about pleasant places this week on The Early Years!

After you've enjoyed Come By The Hills with Sara Hillis, (a replay of her April 2nd show (really this time) due to COVID but she's on the mend), this afternoon from 02:00 to 05:00, don't touch that dial, device, PC, Mac or smart speaker and join me for The Early Years, where and when 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.

Factual Correction to Previous Entry

Sara Hillis here again. I believe I mentioned that I had had four vaccinations for Covid in the entry I posted before. I have only had three. I don't know why I added the extra one. Fourth shots were only made available to my cohort in Ontario about a month ago.

From the Archives by Request, this Week on Come by the Hills!

Hello there! Sara Hillis here to tell you that I am still dealing with the craziness that is Covid, and I do not have the brain power or the bodily energy to attempt a live show this weekend. However, as luck would have it, I've had a request from a listener to replay the Stan Rogers episode we did in June, and I can't think of a better encore presentation to give you.

Jimmy Preston 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.
