Hello magical friends, and welcome to WZRD Radio. I’m your hostwitch Bess, and I’m really enjoying cooling charms this month; I hope you are too. And remember, if you can’t perform your own, store bought is fine.
Let’s kick off this month’s show with “Love Song for Chocolate” by Hayley Carr.
That was “Love Song for Chocolate” by Hayley Carr, Marc Gunn with “My Father was a Werewolf” [lyrics], “Howl at the Moon” by The Moaning Myrtles [lyrics], and The Lovegoods singing “Werewolf” [lyrics].
This month’s wandoscope is for elm wand carriers.
The world sure seems to be throwing everything it’s got at you, elm wand. Luckily, you’re feeling particularly centered this month, and can take it all on with, if not always grace, then at least competence. As long as you’re focused, you’re great at working quickly and without too many mistakes. This month you’ve got a lot to slog through, so don’t pay any attention to the dragon heartstring that’s going to try to convince you to do something out of the ordinary. They just want someone to slack off with them, and now is not the time! Stay strong!
Next up we’ve got “Creepy Mustache” by Remus and the Lupins.
Here’s July’s wrock and Potterhead events!

Thank you so much for sharing this time with me, magical friends.
Congratulations to Geff! You won the Patreon contest with my favorite theme idea. I had the Slytherspouse write out every idea my magical patron friends came up with and I chose from the list. I won’t be sharing them here, though, because they’re all definitely being used in the future. And Geoff, expect a package in the not-too-distant future!
