*K8 celebrated her birthday recently and Murf and Phil tortured her with Hoppy Birdies early in the show. Sir Fluffy Bunny also dropped in on the Mess after *K8 ran away to brunch with her family. Michelle is under the weather and was unable to join the Mess.
With the recent full moon and Mercury coming out of retrograde, the gang of the Mess thought it would be appropriate to use music that shares the balance of the moon. Featuring new music from various New Age and Pagan musicians as well as some classic pieces from Murf’s collection, this episode of the Mess brought you some fun and balance in this interesting astrological time.

Murf, Phil and *K8 had a grand time putting together a selection of music and stories for you this week. It was so fun that they are going to do it again in the very near future! Charles, from the Red Grail, stopped in about half way through the show. You’ll probably be hearing more of him on the show in the near future.

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.
On Sunday the 2nd of June, Murf decided that the show would focus on animals. So, *K8 and Phil joined up with her for a fun show of animal music and stories.
Next Sunday the gang from the Mess will be celebrating *K8’s birthday. She gets to pick most of the music, as has become tradition on the show over the last four years. Looking forward to finding out what she picks out for you all to hear.
*K8 has taken on the task of typing up the music list as it plays in the studio and she posts it to the show’s FaceBook page every week. It is also shared here:
