PMP: Why we do what we do

It has been five years since RevKess dragged KaliSara online to do the first episode of Pagan-Musings. Hard to believe it has been that long! And yes, RevKess had to “drag” KaliSara. He was unemployed and going stir crazy, trying to find something to fill his time while waiting for potential employers to get back with him. So he asked her, “Wanna sit in on my first podcast? I don’t know what I am doing, but it could be a lot of fun!” Five years later and they’ve hardly missed a week (those that have been missed have been due to technical difficulties).

Both hosts enjoy doing the show. They enjoy the music and meeting them musicians. They enjoy the books and talking with the authors. They enjoy sharing news and information with their listeners. On a deeper level, RevKess feels that the show, indeed almost everything he does with PMPChannel, is part of a calling that he has to teach. For KaliSara she feels that she has something to share with others, with the hopes that what she shares will be of benefit to others.

Along the way both hosts shared some of their favorite topics and guests. As you can see from the list below, PMPChannel plays host to other shows, some of them as one-off’s, some as series. PMPChannel plays home to the podcast version of Murphy’s Magic Mess and Lavender Hill from KZUM.

PMP & MP Flip

 

Beginning on Saturday 7 September 2013 and Sunday 8 September 2013 Pagan-Musings Podcast and Musica Pagani are flipping around. Due to a major scheduling conflict, RevKess and KaliSara have decided to flip the programs around. As many of the regular listeners have no doubt noticed this summer, RevKess has been absent more often than not from Pagan-Musings. With football season starting up it is almost guaranteed that he will be unavailable for any of the live Saturday broadcasts for the foreseeable future. With careful consideration, the hosts have decided it would be in the interests of the listeners and the channel to change things.

Beginning on Saturday 7 September 2013 at 7pm Central you can hear Musica Pagani in a recorded format.

At PMPChannel we get several CDs a month plus permission from more artists than we can keep up with during the normal course of shows. A while back RevKess started doing editions of Musica Pagani to showcase those very musicians. KaliSara, Zaracon, Julian and RevKess do their best to give these musicians due time on their shows, but there just isn’t enough time during a news or talk program.

In this first edition of the revised show you hear music from New Age artists like Stephen DeRuby, Anima, Lia Scallon and Dan Kennedy. You also hear from Pagan musicians SJ Tucker, Cernunnos Rising and Tuatha Dea.

Stephen DeRuby‘s newest CD, Awakenings, and the latest from Anima, Light of Aluna, arrived in RevKess’s inbox only days ago. Lia Scallon‘s The Luminous Pearl and Dan Kennedy‘s Intution have been floating around for a little while and have been played on Murphy’s Magic Mess on KZUM. This is their PMPChannel debut.

SJ Tucker did the score to a Pagan themed film called Ember Days and she recently performed in Lincoln, NE. Cernunnos Rising just released their second CD, Urban Druid, and front man George Nicholas and his daughter Katie will be joining KaliSara and RevKess on the 22nd for an edition of Pagan-Musings Podcast. Tuatha Dea just released their third CD, The Tribe, and have been working long and hard with many talented musicians through a new project called The Tribe (Wendy Rule, Damh the Bard, and others have joined up). Tuatha Dea will be joining RevKess and KaliSara on the 29th for Pagan-Musings Podcast.
