This week on Murphy’s Magic Mess the Mama Dragon and her minions decided to take a walk on the Weird Side with their music. Starting with Walkin’ in the Woods by Elvendrums they took a path of oddness that hopefully entertained the listeners.
A special note about the third track, Madiba by Ricky Kej and Wouter Kellerman: 18 July was the birthday of the late Nelson Mandela, an inspiration to his people in South Africa and indeed to the world as a whole. Madiba was the name given to him by his people, it means Father. This track comes from the CD Winds of Samsara. Samsara is from the Sanskrit for “cycle of life” or “reincarnation”.
As a tribute to the late James Garner, actor, we played the full TV theme from The Rockford Files.
Wytches’ Chant ’98 – Inkubus Sukkubus – Away with the Faeries
Its been kind of breezy around these parts the last several days, so Murf thought it would be an awesome idea to use Wind as a theme for this weekend’s show. In the playlist below you will find a collection of mostly “windy” music. This is part of a monthly series of shows that will address the elements. Expect us to do Fire for August, Water for September, and Earth for October.
With quite a bit of the music in the first hour or so being music that Phil has podcast permission for, you can click on the image to the left to listen to “Selections from the Mess” and hear some of what you might have missed (or enjoyed live) on Sunday 13 July 2014. With any luck, Phil will be able to do these “Selections” on a regular basis again starting with this edition and continuing on. This edition of Selections was edited and posted to the Pagan-Musings Podcast Channel on Wednesday 16 July 2014.

Sunday the 5th of January brought what we believe to be a first on Murphy’s Magic Mess, the US debut of Damh the Bard’s newest single, The Wicker Man. Released to the public on the 3rd, to the best of our knowledge the Mess was the first terrestrial radio show to play this wonderful single from British Pagan/Druid recording artist Damh the Bard. You can listen to and purchase the single here.
I enjoyed teasing Murf and Kate, as well as the listeners, with hints at what was in store late in the show. Along with Damh’s single we also played a lot of new New Age music from artists like Kristin Amarie, Yang Yiing, Timothy Wenzel, Steven Vitali, Masako and Dan Chadburn. In the second half of the show we brought you new music from SJ Tucker, Wendy Rule and of course Damh the Bard. Along the way we played classic pieces from Inanna, Ubaka Hill and Lesiem. So much more. Check out the play list below for a full listing of the music.
