This week on Murphy’s Magic Mess the Mama Dragon and her minions decided to take a walk on the Weird Side with their music. Starting with Walkin’ in the Woods by Elvendrums they took a path of oddness that hopefully entertained the listeners.
A special note about the third track, Madiba by Ricky Kej and Wouter Kellerman: 18 July was the birthday of the late Nelson Mandela, an inspiration to his people in South Africa and indeed to the world as a whole. Madiba was the name given to him by his people, it means Father. This track comes from the CD Winds of Samsara. Samsara is from the Sanskrit for “cycle of life” or “reincarnation”.
As a tribute to the late James Garner, actor, we played the full TV theme from The Rockford Files.
Wytches’ Chant ’98 – Inkubus Sukkubus – Away with the Faeries
Wow, would you look at that. Been falling WAY behind on doing anything on here this winter. Time to do a little catch up.
Michelle from the Order of the Red Grail, Church for Transformational Wicca
Sunday 8 December 2013 on Murphy’s Magic Mess we were joined by Michelle from the Order of the Red Grail, Church for Transformational Wicca. She was telling us and our listeners about the upcoming Yule celebration in which the Red Grail has partnered with Nebraska Heathens United. Should be a lot of fun!
The play list is based on the notes Phil entered live during the show. You can view the whole play list on Facebook. Kate was at the players, Murf on the boards, and Phil was trying to keep up on the play list. Any errors are Phil’s. If you have a correction to the play list, please comment here or on Facebook so we can fix it ASAP.

Would seem that Phil’s radio blog has gone MIA, or at least his ability to post it, and since the promoters and the musicians have been chomping at the bit to see playlists posted somewhere, he will be posting them to this blog site until he can either rectify the situation or decides on if he wants to recreate that radio blog.
Nadine Murphy, host of MMM at the boards.
*K8 of Murphy’s Magic Mess on KZUM has been so kind as to enter in the playlist as it happens on Facebook. So it has become even easier for the weekly playlist to be made available to everyone. Her formatting is different than mine, though. She does song title, artist, album. Which is fine, it is all there. We all (Murf included) hope that you enjoy and appreciate these playlists. If time allows when I post them to this blog I will also include links to some or all of the musicians’ pages.
Sunday, 28 April 2013 was the first of two Beltaine shows for the gang on MMM. Looking at the music we played should make that obvious, but you never know…. *wink* In this list you will find some “classic” Pagan pieces as well as some brand new pieces that had arrived for either Phil or Murf in recent weeks. As always, the first 30-45 minutes of the program includes new release New Age music that is sent to us either by the radio promoter for the album or the musician themselves.
