    Note from Phil: I was nervous about the sound quality of their performance. Being in the studio it was difficult to understand the lyrics with the overwhelming volume of the instruments. When I listened to the play back I was pleasantly surprised. My thanks to Ryan Evans, program director at KZUM, for doing the sound during their visit. This is one show you won't want to miss!

    LH #203: Marriage Equality & Political Mishaps

    in LGBT

    On Sunday 25 January 2015 Corwin and Phil talked marriage equality and political mishaps. Particularly the marriage equality case in Nebraska. As of the time this show went live it looked like the judge scheduled to hear the case had postponed the hearing pending the ruling from SCOTUS on similar cases before them this session. Phil has since learned that it was merely a postponement of a hearing to allow same sex marriage in Nebraska pending his final decision. That hearing has been rescheduled and Corwin and Phil will be talking more about that on 1 February.


    Lavender Hill airs live every Sunday morning at 11am Central. Approaching four years on the air, Lavender Hill is Nebraska's only LGBTQIAA news and talk program on community radio.

    Lavender Hill #188: Fall 2014 Pledge Drive

    in LGBT

    Sunday, Cotober 12, 2014, found Corwin and Phil, with special guest Kate, once again asking for the listeners to "put their money where their ears are" and pledge their support to KZUM and Lavender Hill. To help with that they had a selection of SPECIAL pledge premiums to share with those who called into the show to make their pledge. Two of the three premiums were claimed during the show. Thank you to Lincoln listener Loye and Omaha listeners Brad and Jeremy for their support and to Lincolnite Joan for her continued support for Lavender Hill and KZUM.

    The hosts did much more than just ask for your money. They continued the conversation from last week regarding trans education of teachers and staff at Lincoln Public Schools, including the audio for Superintendent Steve Joel explaing to parents the LPS guidelines. It would seem that this rumoured "mandate" for trans-inclusion had hit national media thanks to a teacher sharing a handout with a parent and implying it was to be enforced policy at LPS. On Tuesay the 14th parents, teachers, staff, students, and concerned citizens can attend an open-to-the-public meeting to learn more and share their view points.

    With plede drive going on, not much was able to be convered during the rest of the show. Talk of marriage equality, Matthew Shepard and other issues of interest to the local and global LGBTQIAA community were touched upon. You can still pledge your support to Lavender Hill and KZUM by visiting www.kzum.org.


    Tune in on the 19th as Corwin and Phil return to regular programming for the Hill.

    in Music

    On August 19, 2014, RevKess got to sit down at the KZUM studios and talk with SJ Tucker and Betsy Tinney. Both ladies are truly magickal beings and they were in Lincoln, NE to bring their special kind of musical magick to an audience at the historic Feguson House. Earlier in the day they met with RevKess to talk about their music, their lives, and share of themselves with listeners of Murphy's Magic Mess on KZUM - and with the PMPChannel listeners.


    August 24 heard the first part of this conversation on the Mess. The second segment, split into two parts, was heard on September 7. For your listening enjoyment is the entire interview and a selection of music. The music is slightly different from that heard on the Mess.
