MMM: Soundbackers Union 2014

ad bannerLast year started a new membership drive at KZUM, the Soundbackers Union. An exclusive group of member-listeners who get special benefits from KZUM – including discounted concert tickets, elite swag, and other exciting benefits. For one week every June the station does a fund raising campaign for the Soundbackers Union. Murphy’s Magic Mess put together a special playlist for  the event. The campaign for the 2014 membership of the Soundbackers ends on the 23rd at midnight Central time, but KZUM is always open to new member-listeners and donations to support Nebraska’s first and only community radio station.

Tracks 7 and 8 were arranged in honor of Sparky T. Rabbit, one of the voices of Lunacy. Sparky passed away a little over two weeks ago. As Murf said during the show, “what is remembered never dies.”

MMM: “All-Father’s Day” Playlist

ad bannerFather’s Day on the Mess was a fun and sometimes confusing mess. The Mama Dragon had two master discs to play from, so Phil found himself bouncing back and forth between the two. Along with those two masters was the collection of new age music for the first half hour and a variety of other selections from the KZUM stacks and the random CDs all three brought with them. The below playlist is courtesy the efforts of *K8, Phil has made any minor corrections that were needed.

A Messy End to 2013, MMM on KZUM

drunk_dragon_drunkon_by_sssilver_c-d32orug2013 is drawing to close, and has already done so here on Murphy’s Magic Mess. Sadly, *K8 was not in studio with us this morning. She was off celebrating the winter holidays with her family. But, while the *K8’s away….. Murf and Phil had a blast and infused the latter portion of the show with a great collection of songs about drinking. See the whole list of music below (and please, if you spot an error, let us know so we can fix it!).

You can find much of the music from the second half of the show for free download thanks to Pandora Celtica, SJ Tucker, Sharon Knight and dozens more wonderful musicians who got together and decided to give their fans 79 tracks of music as a holiday gift. This free download is available through Valentine’s Day 2014. We’d suggest that you download each track individually. May be time-consuming, but definitely a lot less time than it takes to download them all as a ZIP file. (Phil tried twice and both times the file came up as empty.) Here’s the download page.
