May the 4th be with you, as our Star Wars friends are blasting all over social media today. Beltane is here. Many celebrate the festival on the weekend closest to the date of May 1st. Many others have already celebrated, either on the 1st or last weekend. Yet others honor the spirit of the festival in their own way, sometimes through the entire month of May. My own Mother Coven has celebrated today. KaliSara is celebrating the birth of her second child, Lady Bug is no longer a baby.
This edition of Pagan-Musings Podcast brings you a variety of music, tales, and information about Beltane. We hope that you enjoy listening to the wonderful and beautiful finds we have for you. Click here to listen to the broadcast.

Would seem that Phil’s radio blog has gone MIA, or at least his ability to post it, and since the promoters and the musicians have been chomping at the bit to see playlists posted somewhere, he will be posting them to this blog site until he can either rectify the situation or decides on if he wants to recreate that radio blog.
Nadine Murphy, host of MMM at the boards.
*K8 of Murphy’s Magic Mess on KZUM has been so kind as to enter in the playlist as it happens on Facebook. So it has become even easier for the weekly playlist to be made available to everyone. Her formatting is different than mine, though. She does song title, artist, album. Which is fine, it is all there. We all (Murf included) hope that you enjoy and appreciate these playlists. If time allows when I post them to this blog I will also include links to some or all of the musicians’ pages.
Sunday, 28 April 2013 was the first of two Beltaine shows for the gang on MMM. Looking at the music we played should make that obvious, but you never know…. *wink* In this list you will find some “classic” Pagan pieces as well as some brand new pieces that had arrived for either Phil or Murf in recent weeks. As always, the first 30-45 minutes of the program includes new release New Age music that is sent to us either by the radio promoter for the album or the musician themselves.
