PWN 2015.3.4: Here we go again

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.

RevKess and KaliSara welcome your comments both here and on the Facebook page for Pagan Weekly News.

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.

Mruphy’s Magic Mess, 28 July 2013

ad bannerMurf, *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.

The Music

  1. Inkubus Sukkubus – Wytches’ Chant ’98 – Away with the Faeries
  2. The Pure Heart Ensemble – Remembering the Goal – Bliss of Being
  3. Fiona Joy Hawkins – The Journey – 600 Years in a Moment
  4. Meg Bowles – The Sweetness of Mist Pt 2 – The Shimmering Lands (radio edit)
  5. Steven Halpern – Deep Theta 2.0 Pt 7 – Deep Theta 2.0
  6. Sherry Finzer  & Daren Mahoney – Early Spring – Transformation
  7. Craig Urquhart – Autumn Wind – First Light
  8. Jami Sieber – River of Sky – Timeless
  9. Dan Kennedy – Cycle – Lantern
  10. Masako – Remembrance Pt 1 – Masako
  11. Larisa Stow – Ganesh Mantra I – Reaching In
  12. Larisa Stow – Ganesh Mantra II – Reaching In
  13. Lunacy – Shango – Hand of Desire
  14. Leslie Fish – Avalon is Risen – Avalon is Risen
  15. Kiva – Water Fire and Smoke – Out of the Corner of the Eye
  16. Tuatha Dea – The Landing – Tuatha Dea
  17. Blackmore’s Night – The Spinner’s Tale – Dancer and the Moon
  18. Elvendrums – Walking in the Woods – The Dragon
  19. Three Weird Sisters – Like Their Feet Have Wings – Hair of the Frog
  20. Solstice Assembly – Ripe and Bearded Barley – Some Assembly Required
  21. Sharon Knight & T Thorn Coyle – Nature’s Bounty – Songs for the Strengthening Sun
  22. Spiral Dance – Harvest Carol/Harvest Song – Lie: Worts & All
  23. Kenny Klein – Dead Gerbil Jam – Fairy Queen
  24. Dale Bacon – Anti-Gerbil Song – unreleased single

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.

MMM 7/14/13: Transitions

Murf's Blue DragonPost 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.

PWN #98: Summer Solstice, Snowden & More

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.

Summer Solstice

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.

  1. SJ Tucker – The Truth About Ninjas – Mischief
  2. 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.)

  4. Spiral Dance – Solstice Evergreen – The Quickening

Update & Further Info on Snowden & PRISM

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.

Many media sites are defending Edward Snowden, the Guardian being one of them. Snowden approached the Guardian to get his story out instead of US news sources. Read why: http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2013/jun/11/edward-snowden-nsa-whistleblower-profile

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
