Well now, would seem that RevKess has been even more neglectful of things than usual. It has been some time since he did an edition of Musica Pagani. He’s making it up for it the best he can with a two parter: Rock It, Pagan Style!
Earlier in 2013, Kenny Klein launched a recording project with his touring band FishBird. Some of the music they did was rock-like covers of some of his older music. And of course, every good musician is experimenting with new pieces whenever possible. That’s just what FishBird has done.
In this two parter of Musica Pagani you will get a taste of FishBird as well as some other rocking musicians and bands with a distinctive Pagan flare. Everyone from Leigh Anne Hussey with her unreleased Uglytown demo to Wendy Rule and Rosin Coven, with stops along the way to visit with Omnia and Frenchy and the Punk.
We do hope that you have enjoyed this special edition of Musica Pagani!
Hello, all. I’ve been rather remiss of late when it comes to sharing our play lists and other notes from the shows, both those on PMPChannel and the shows I am involved in on KZUM. We’ll see what we can do to rectify that.
Here is the playlist from Murphy’s Magic Mess on the 10th. It was our Veterans’s Day celebration, so much of the music fits into that theme. It was also one of our SoundExchange tracking weeks, so the format of the playlist is taking straight from the tracking spreadsheet. I had the pleasure of selecting the music, and these 20 tracks are just half of what I selected. We also had a nice little visit with Josh Bivins of UNL Pagan Life, the Pagan student group at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
KZUM promotes diversity and the Mess is a prime example of that diversity. If you listen to KZUM often you know that Sundays are an interesting combination of programming. The Glorious Gospel is from 6-9am and immediately followed by Murphy’s Magic Mess from 9-11am. Two polar opposite programs back to back. There is very little, if any, tension between the programmers for these two shows.
To share in that diversity, Murf, *K8 and Phil decided to do a show filled with songs about diversity and songs that address the discrimination that unfortunately still exists in the world. You can see that by the variety of songs that were picked for the show.

Beginning on Saturday 7 September 2013 and Sunday 8 September 2013 Pagan-Musings Podcast and Musica Pagani are flipping around. Due to a major scheduling conflict, RevKess and KaliSara have decided to flip the programs around. As many of the regular listeners have no doubt noticed this summer, RevKess has been absent more often than not from Pagan-Musings. With football season starting up it is almost guaranteed that he will be unavailable for any of the live Saturday broadcasts for the foreseeable future. With careful consideration, the hosts have decided it would be in the interests of the listeners and the channel to change things.
Beginning on Saturday 7 September 2013 at 7pm Central you can hear Musica Pagani in a recorded format. RevKess wil continue to bring you music from the New Age and Pagan genres along with interview segments with some of those artists. You can also catch some RevKess’s music reviews over at his review site.
Beginning on Sunday 8 September 2013 at 7pm Central you can hear Pagan-Musings Podcast, most often broadcast live. KaliSara and RevKess will continue to bring you talk and information from the Pagan community with a variety of topics and guests.
Here at PMPChannel we hope that you will find this change to be easy and cause little to no disruption to your listening experience. The hosts are looking forward to being able to continue to bring you the information and entertainment you have grown to appreciate over the years, as well as spice things up a bit with some new topics, new guests, new music, and lots of fun!
You can contact the hosts of PMPChannel at email@example.com or on Facebook.

The first half hour of the show was brief coverage of some Pagan related news as well as some goings-on in the United Kingdom. Heather joined the broadcast around the bottom of the first hour. For the majority of the program she and RevKess discussed a variety of Pagan media related issues. Rounding out the end of the show RevKess visited on a couple of other news items.
UK prime minister David Cameron shows his conservatism with the new default internet filters that he insists the UK’s four major providers implement. These filters will block more than just porn. Internet filters will block porn, violence, and esoteric material.
Heather Greene’s article on The Wild Hunt talking about the CoG Merry Meet in Salem, Mass and the impromptu memorial observance for the victims of the Salem Witch Craze in the 1690′s.
128 episodes into the Lavender Hill series and we are going strong. With the recent additional of an extra half hour, Corwin and Phil get to bring you more news, views, interviews, and music from the LGBTQA+ community.
This we the hosts covered several topics ranging from marriage equality issues in the United States and elsewhere, the blood industry and the ban on gay men donating blood, plasma and other blood products, Russia’s continued negative stance towards the LGBTQA+ population and their pledge to enforce their anti-gay laws during the 2014 Olympics in Sochi, and some political wrangling from the Conservative end of the spectrum.
Claiming that the rights of athletes would be respected during the 2014 Olympics in Sochi, Russian Sports Minister Vitaly Mutko urged gay rights activists to “calm down”. Even with his assurances of respecting rights, he insists that all athletes, citizens and visitors alike, will be expected to obey established Russian.
Fox contributor Sandy Rios sticks her foot in it again by insisting that gays are incapable of healthy long term relationships, especially gay men.
Call Me Kuchu is showing at the Mary Riepma Ross Media Arts Center in Lincoln, NE from Friday the 16th of August through Thursday the 22nd.
In Uganda, a new bill threatens to make homosexuality punishable by death. With unprecedented access, the filmmakers follow David Kato – Uganda’s first openly gay man – and his fellow activists as they work against the clock to defeat the legislation while combating vicious persecution in their daily lives. But no one, not even the filmmakers, are prepared for the brutal murder that shakes their movement to its core and sends shock waves around the world. CALL ME KUCHU depicts the last year in the life of a courageous, quick-witted and, steadfast man whose wisdom and achievements were not fully recognized until after his death, and whose memory has inspired a new generation of human rights advocates.
