MMM: Independence 2014

fireworksOn Murphy’s Magic Mess we like to celebrate the holidays with music and stories. That’s just what we did this weekend for Independence Day. Murf, however, was at home with one of those miserable summer colds. *K8 and Phil managed to muddle through without her. Phil putting together the first hour, *K8 the second. As you can tell from the playlist, the show became something resembling Hindu Patriotism. Not intended, but it did come out that way.

This week is one of those special tracking weeks that we have to do at KZUM. That means that we have to track and report to SoundExchange everything we play, when we started the track and when we ended. This gives us the opportunity to play longer tracks. Sure, we could play 10-45 minute tracks every week if we wanted to, but we want to give the listener as much variety as we can every week. We’ll be doing this again in August.

Musica Pagani: Music of the Divine Feminine

On Wednesday, April 11, RevKess hosted a special edition of Musica Pagani with guest Jenna Greene. It was a special edition because it was done live. Musica Pagani is usually recorded in advance, but this time RevKess had a guest host with him and wanted to do it live and raw for the listeners.

Jenna Greene is a wonderful guest to have on the show, and this was her third or fourth appearance on the Channel. She’s released two CD’s and is already working out ideas for a third. Crossroads, her debut album, is a beautiful collection of songs showing some of her vocal talent and sharing her song writing skills with the world. Her second album, Wild Earth Child, has just been released and has more of a world fusion feel to the instrumentals, but continues to display her vocal talents.

Jenna joined RevKess to talk about some of the music written, recorded, or produced by Pagan women. After talking a little about each of the artists featured a selection from one of their albums was played for listener enjoyment.
