MMM: Independence 2014

fireworksOn 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.

Murphy’s Magic Mess pays Musical Tribute to Freedom & Independence

Right up at the top of the hour, the Mama Dragon and her minions took over the boards from the Glorious Gospel. Kate and Murf put together a wonderful set of military and patriotic music to celebrate the freedoms that we as Americans have fought so long and hard for.

This time Phil typed up the play list and *K8 got to hang out at the boards. Some information is missing as *K8 doesn’t always provide full track info. Phil did what he could to find the missing information, but it was not enough. If you have correct track information, please leave it in comments below so the posting can be corrected.
