MMM: Phil’s Birthday Mess 9/14/14

(Editor’s note: We are playing a little catch up with our play lists. Our apologies for the delays.) Sunday, 14 September 2014 was Phil’s birthday. As such he got to pick all the music for the show.  Twenty-six of Phil’s favorites, from new age to Pagan rock, found their way onto the final play list. With almost six  hours worth of music to pick from, there was a lot that got chopped to fit into a two hour show. Tough choices, but a lot of fun was had by all.

  1. Wytches’ Chant ’98 – Inkubus Sukkubus – Away with the Fairies   
  2. Invocation – Luminous World Orchestra – Moments from the Life Stories of Strangers
  3. Calligraphy – Laura Sullivan – The Gathering II
  4. Andean Blues – Ciro Hurtado – Ayahausca Dreams
  5. Frolik – Matthew Schoening – Narrow Path
  6. New Normal – Adam Andrews – Road to Ambo
  7. Once Around – Ray Spiegel Ensemble – Moksha
  8. Demeter’s Daughter – Anne Lister – Spreading Rings
  9. Persephone – Mama Gina – Goddess Kiss’d
  10. I Am Isis – Celia – sampler 2
  11. Prayer for Isis – Omnia – Sine Missione
  12. Witches Tree – Cernunnos Rising – Urban Druid
  13. The Mummer’s Dance – Loreena McKennitt – The Mummer’s Dance through Ireland
  14. Ravens in the Library – SJ Tucker – Mischief
  15. Oak & Ash & Thorn – Kiva – A Call to Beauty
  16. Herne the Hunter – Pandora Celtica – On Thin Ice
  17. Waiting for John Barleycorn – Murphey’s Midnight Rounders – Swede Hollow
  18. Don’t go Drinking with Hobbits – Marc Gunn – Don’t Go Drinking with Hobbits.
  19. Do Virgins Taste Better Medley – Brobdingabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyznagian Bards – A Faire to Remember
  20. Tail of a Star – Colette O’Connor & Deb Anderson – (unreleased single)
  21. My Karma Broke Down – Three Weird Sisters – Hair of the Frog
  22. Talk Like A Pirate Day – Tom Smith – They Say I Have Talent
  23. Ladies in the SCA – Joe Bethancourt & Leslie Fish
  24. Jabberwocky – Isaac Bonewits  – Avalon is Rising
  25. Jabberwocky – Omnia – Wolf Love
  26. Dagda’s Club – Isaac Bonewits  – Avalon is Rising

#22 was selected because 19 September is International Talk Like a Pirate Day. Following just days after Phil’s birthday, he has an affinity for pirates. Who doesn’t??  #20 was selected for two reasons, a great song and Deb Anderson is the Goddess Mother of both Murphy’s Magic Mess and Lavender Hill on KZUM. She is the host of The Wimmins Show. Each track has a reason for it being on his favorites list, perhaps in a future posting he will explain each choice – or you can ask in comments.

Mruphy’s Magic Mess, 28 July 2013

ad bannerMurf, *K8 and Phil bring you two hours of new age and Pagan music every Sunday morning on KZUM in Lincoln, NE from 9am to 11am.

This week seemed to be a little strange with the studio equipment. Players not firing, CDs stopping after only 20 seconds of play. Mercury has gone direct, so it wasn’t an astrological incident. No, we discovered the reason when Murf told us what she had lined up on her master disc for the second hour. Scroll down through the play list and surely you will see what was up, too.

The Music

  1. Inkubus Sukkubus – Wytches’ Chant ’98 – Away with the Faeries
  2. The Pure Heart Ensemble – Remembering the Goal – Bliss of Being
  3. Fiona Joy Hawkins – The Journey – 600 Years in a Moment

  23. Kenny Klein – Dead Gerbil Jam – Fairy Queen

Thankfully, Murf always seems to have Dale Bacon’s response to Kenny Klein ready to go, but sometimes Dale’s spirit does like to show his displeasure over the song.

Summer Solstice celebrations have been going strong all around the world. Doreen Valiente was honored in her place of birth with a “blue plaque” that declares her the “Mother of Modern Witchcraft.”
