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: A Weird Mess

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.

A Windy Mess – MMM 071314

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.

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.

Notes for 29 September 2013

KZUM promotes diversity and the Mess is a prime example of that diversity. If you listen to KZUM often you know that Sundays are an interesting combination of programming. The Glorious Gospel is from 6-9am and immediately followed by Murphy’s Magic Mess from 9-11am. Two polar opposite programs back to back. There is very little, if any, tension between the programmers for these two shows.

To share in that diversity, Murf, *K8 and Phil decided to do a show filled with songs about diversity and songs that address the discrimination that unfortunately still exists in the world. You can see that by the variety of songs that were picked for the show.

  1. God is Alive, Magick is Afoot – Buffy Sainte-Marie – Illumination
  2. Ancient Paths – Stanton Lanier – Open Spaces
  3. Valhalla – Stephen DeRuby – Sacred Spaces
  4. Day of Celebration – James Sera – Reality of the Fantasy
  5. Goddess Rising – Paradiso & Rasamayi – Attuning to Oneness: the Harmonic Ascension
  6. Malaika – Wouter Kellerman – Mzansi
  7. Rag Klem – David Vito Gregoli – Primordial Sonics
  8. Burning Times – Charlie Murphy & Circle Magic Music – Circle
  9. By Our Own Fear – The Wyrd Sisters – Inside the Dreaming
  10. Scott & Jamie – Fred Small
  11. Homophobes in Robes – Romanovsky & Phillips – Let’s Flaunt It
  12.  I’m Not Homophobic – The Trestle Foote Faerie – Naughty in Pink
  13. The Heart is the Only Nation – Ruth Barrett & Cynthia Smith – The Heart is the Only Nation
  14. Silent No Longer – Emma’s Revolution – Roots, Rock and Revolution
  15. Feel the Colors – Ubaka Hill – Dance the Spiral Dance
