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.

A Messy Blues

ad bannerFor the fifth year in a row Phil cobbled together a Blues program to fill the time slot for Murphy’s Magic Mess on KZUM. Every Labor Day Weekend KZUM preempts all programming for 83 hours of Blues. In the past this has been more of a challenge for Phil and the rest of the Mess, this year was different. The challenge was to whittle it down to two hours of music. Didn’t quite happen that way, he had 2 hours and 27 minutes of music and Murf  joined the fun with another 47 minutes of music. Clearly not everything on their lists got played.

Kate was off for the weekend attending a family gathering. Michelle and her husband stopped in briefly to share the fun of Murf’s birthday.

 

The following is the played list of music.

MMM: “All-Father’s Day” Playlist

ad bannerFather’s Day on the Mess was a fun and sometimes confusing mess. The Mama Dragon had two master discs to play from, so Phil found himself bouncing back and forth between the two. Along with those two masters was the collection of new age music for the first half hour and a variety of other selections from the KZUM stacks and the random CDs all three brought with them.

Murphy’s Magic Mess for 11 August 2013

MysteriesOfHeavenIt was another one of those lovely tracking weeks at KZUM. Not that big of a deal, after having done it for so long. Still a bit of a headache as we have to get start and finish times, record labels and the like. Oh, well. Makes it a bit more of a challenge and quite educational.

Phil cut’n’pasted the Artist, Track, and CD  Title frames from the spread sheet he used, so things look a little different. We hope that you can still figure everything out okay. The format is the same as usual, just not numbered.

Musica Pagani #9: A day early

Due to some scheduling issues and RevKess getting deep into research, Musica Pagani aired a day early. Saturdays are the usual day for the Pagan-Musings Podcast with KaliSara and RevKess. RevKess has to work and KaliSara has dived deep into her writing projects. So, Musica Pagani comes to you a day early. Hope that you enjoy!

The format is a little bit different for this evening’s broadcast as well. Managing to squeeze the show into just over two hours, RevKess brings you a selection of New Age and Pagan music, but with a different twist. 1-2 tracks per artists instead of three, and a story thrown in their for a little bit of extra fun. As all the programming on the Pagan-Musings Podcast Channel is constantly evolving, who knows where the next edition will bring you!

Speaking of future editions, before we give you the set list, here’s a sneak peak at what is coming your way in August. On Sunday the 11th, Brian Henke visits with RevKess about his music career, shares some of his inspirations and his music. On the 18th, that Goddess Kiss’d gal from Florida, Mama Gina, joins RevKess on the show to talk about her music and a recent benefit to support a local metaphysical shop that was destroyed in a fire.

Musica Pagani #5

It is the 5th Sunday in a month, which means RevKess gets to play around a little more with the music for Musica Pagani. Instead of a combo of New Age and Pagan music, it is all vocals or lively instrumentals this time around. This edition is more a review of RevKess’s favorites on the channel. Music from groups like Murphey’s Midnight Rounders, Telergy and Omnia with some fun from Blackmore’s Night as a teaser for their new album (which parts will be aired in July) and Frenchy and the Punk (adding their Elephant Stomp in July).

The show was mapped out before the disappointing need to reschedule Tuatha Dea’s interview, so there are three tracks from them and some of their Tribe (Spiral Rhythm and Celia). RevKess is working on adding Spiral Rhythm to the approved play list so the listeners can enjoy more of their wonderful tunage as well.

Later this week is the 4th of July celebration on the Pagan-Musings Podcast Channel. This year we are going to do it on Musica Pagani with lots of music about freedom, diversity and independence. Be sure to tune in this Thursday (4 July 2013) at 7pm CT for a musical celebration!
