This week’s edition of PWN had a few hiccups. For that we apologize. We do want to thank you for muddling through our audio issues and listening to the show, nonetheless. KaliSara was a bit under the weather and was unable to participate. RevKess managed to slog through on his own. Talking about everything from RFRA’s to Workers’ Compensation, from Pagan music news and upcoming book releases. this edition will tackle a lot of bad and some very good news.

It 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.
Murf, *K8 and Phil bring you two hours of new age and Pagan music every Sunday morning on KZUM in Lincoln, NE from 9am to 11am.
This week seemed to be a little strange with the studio equipment. Players not firing, CDs stopping after only 20 seconds of play. Mercury has gone direct, so it wasn’t an astrological incident. No, we discovered the reason when Murf told us what she had lined up on her master disc for the second hour. Scroll down through the play list and surely you will see what was up, too.
Inkubus Sukkubus – Wytches’ Chant ’98 – Away with the Faeries
Thankfully, Murf always seems to have Dale Bacon’s response to Kenny Klein ready to go, but sometimes Dale’s spirit does like to show his displeasure over the song.
If you were listening or have seen the playlist on our Facebook page, you will note that some corrections to the playlist have been made. There was at least one case of mistaken identity and some typos in the Facebook posting. If you find any errors in this posting, please let us know so we can correct them.
Post Star City Pride here in Lincoln, Ne. Phil over slept. He woke up 15 minutes into today’s Mess. Murf and *K8 were doing fine without him, but luckily they called to make sure he was on his way. If for no other reason than to arrive at the studio in time to do Lavender Hill. Even with him being late, he was able to get the whole play list entered into the Facebook notes for Murphy’s Magic Mess and get all situated for the long day at KZUM – he stayed to help engineer a special musical guest for The Wimmins Show.
Saturday was the marriage of two long time KZUM listeners, particularly of the Mess. And recently Murf lost a friend who was an English professor at University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Much of today’s show was in dedication to all three of those wonderful people. A bit sad at times, but also a lot of fun at others.
(Playlist formatting note, *K8 enters information in a different order and Phil continued with that after his arrival. The order is Song title, Artist, CD.)

The 98th edition of Pagan Weekly News aired at 9am Central on 18 June 2013. Among many topics discussed, RevKess and Zaracon spent some time with Summer Solstice, some recent and upcoming book releases and an update on PRISM and Edward Snowden.
The Summer Solstice is being celebrated in the Northern Hemisphere this time of year. It is also known as Litha by some and Midsummer by others. The names for this festival vary depending on your tradition, heritage, culture and region. Suffice it to say, it is a celebration of Summer and of Life.
Our friends in the Southern Hemisphere are celebrating the Winter Solstice or Yule. We give a salute to them with a song at the end of the show.
Kupala‘s Feast, the celebration of a little known Eastern European Goddess?
Pagan Spirit Gathering is one of the most popular summer festivals in the United States. Hosted by Circle Sanctuary, PSG is now held at Stonehouse Farm outside Earlville, IL. PSG is well underway at the time of our broadcast, but we still wanted to share news and information with our listeners who could not attend this year’s festivities.
The Pagan History Project launched on Facebook with a new website soon to follow. “We are using “Pagan” in its broadest sense, encompassing: Witchcraft , Traditional and other, Wicca, Heathenry, Druidry, various Reconstructionisms, Magical Lodges, etc. All the groups and traditions and paths that make up the American Occult/Magical/Pagan movement from the early days ( the 1930s, 40′s 50′s…) to present. We are focusing on everything and everyone pre-1995 at this time, due to our aging population.”
Isaac Bonewits – We Won’t Shave Any Longer – Avalon is Rising! (RevKess misspoke during the show, this is We Won’t Any Longer. Still a good song! RevKess may be making a video for We Won’t Shave Any Longer later this year.)
On Tuesday the 11th of June, 2013, RevKess reported on the PRISM scandal and the whistle blower Edward Snowden who at that time was hiding from US officials somewhere in Hong Kong. Since then, there have been some concerns on the veracity of his claims and his history.
Yet others say he has gone from whistle blower to traitor. See the story SCMP.com “Edward Snowden: US Government has been hacking Hong Kong and China. You can also read, on the Guardian no less, how Snowden has potentially weakened his own defense if brought to trial in the US on charges of espionage: http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2013/jun/11/edward-snowden-defence
