David Kilgour – Waiting Round On You
Comet Gain – Long After Tonite’s Candles Are Blown

Hilltop Radio No.12

Forecast: Fly to fly.

I had a couple of song lists to work from for this episode.   It was raining when I started to prep so I thought this mix would suit the mood better.  It is sunny again, and the list seems to work for that as well.

Stephen Stills – The Treasure
Frankie Miller – After All (I Live My Life)
The Movements – Stolen Love
The Tragically Hip – Something On
The Skydiggers – Red Deer To Margaree

Spirit – Taurus
Fairfield Parlour – Free
