(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.

#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.
Murf, *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.
Inkubus Sukkubus – Wytches’ Chant ’98 – Away with the Faeries
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.
If you were listening or have seen the playlist on our Facebook page, you will note that some corrections to the playlist have been made. There was at least one case of mistaken identity and some typos in the Facebook posting. If you find any errors in this posting, please let us know so we can correct them.
Today on KZUM‘s Murphy’s Magic Mess, Murf, *K8, and Phil celebrated the Summer Solstice and the Full Moon. *K8 diligently typed up the play list as we were going. 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.”
Click the plaque to see a video of the commemoration.
Included in the list of songs you will find links to videos, lyrics, the artists’ pages and other useful information about the songs. The format *K8 uses is slightly different from what you see on other play lists on this site. She uses “song title”, “artist”, “album”.
Isis, Astarte – Kate West & the Hearth of Hecate – Elements of Chant(word of caution when opening this link, it auto plays “Isis, Astarte”.)
