On Murphy’s Magic Mess we like to celebrate the holidays with music and stories. That’s just what we did this weekend for Independence Day. Murf, however, was at home with one of those miserable summer colds. *K8 and Phil managed to muddle through without her. Phil putting together the first hour, *K8 the second. As you can tell from the playlist, the show became something resembling Hindu Patriotism. Not intended, but it did come out that way.
This week is one of those special tracking weeks that we have to do at KZUM. That means that we have to track and report to SoundExchange everything we play, when we started the track and when we ended. This gives us the opportunity to play longer tracks. Sure, we could play 10-45 minute tracks every week if we wanted to, but we want to give the listener as much variety as we can every week. We’ll be doing this again in August.

A note to anyone who may have attempted to call in during the show. A firmware or software issue has been cropping up on the weekends that deactivates the phones. The program manager and our station engineer are working with our phone service to correct the problem.
*K8 celebrated her birthday over the weekend, which means that it was her birthday show! She turned 3 dozen and had a lot of fun putting music together for the show. The new age segment of the show was planned out, for the most part, by Phil – otherwise the show was *K8’s.
A special note about Track 11: The Kirtan Aid CD is a special compilation put together to benefit the children of an orphanage in Rishikesh, India. From the back of the CD case: “Kirtan Aid isthe music of yoga in service to the planet. 100% of the profits from this album will build a shelter for homeless orphans at a sanctuary for children called Ramana’s Garden in Rishikech, India.” You can learn more about the Sat Nam Foundation’s Kirtan Aid projects at www.satnamfoundation.org.
