Greetings and well met, my friends! Thank you again for listening to Murphy's Magic Mess on KZUM 89.3, Lincoln's Community Radio.
Today was a fun day at the studio. After I did the "standing in the cold pagan peepee dance" I was able to join Murf upstairs and help her with another wonderful show! It is my own fault for not getting there on time. I have really got to work on getting up early enough to meet Murf downstairs. A big thanks to our friends with the Gospel show for letting me in as they left. And we dearly hope that our friend with that show gets well very soon!
We listened to some wonderful music, everything from nice and relaxing meditation style music to some Ray Stevens with the Baptist Squirrel. That was a hoot!
We didn't get a chance to do our weekly announcements, so here we go:
