MMM: Mabon Mess 9/21/14

Photo: What happens when Murphy and I think too much alike for the music on Murphy's Magic Mess. "Turtle mode." Poor Kate.(Editor’s note: We are playing a little catch up with play lists. We apologise for the delays.) The Autumnal Equinox, Mabon, has arrived. The day before the celestial event Murf, *K8, and Phil put this show together for your listening enjoyment.

The picture to the left should be explained. Murf and Phil have been doing the show together for nearly six years. *K8 is the newest addition to the Mess. Often times Phil and Murf find themselves thinking along the same lines for show ideas, tracks to play, sometimes even saying the same things in unison. Sometimes these incidences scare *K8. This particular picture was taken after Phil commented to Murf that on his way into the studio he was thinking that some Lindie Lila would be great for the show, Murf had picked a Lindie Lila track for the show! And then they both spelled something out for *K8 in stereo. After which Phil said to her, “After five years with Murf, you too will starting thinking like us.” Thus, she hid inside her shirt. Going “Turtle” as she called it.

MMM: “All-Father’s Day” Playlist

ad bannerFather’s Day on the Mess was a fun and sometimes confusing mess. The Mama Dragon had two master discs to play from, so Phil found himself bouncing back and forth between the two. Along with those two masters was the collection of new age music for the first half hour and a variety of other selections from the KZUM stacks and the random CDs all three brought with them. The below playlist is courtesy the efforts of *K8, Phil has made any minor corrections that were needed.
