Ghosty season has arrived.  Voting begins today, and will continue until Saturday, November 18th at 11:59 CST.  Just click on the link that says Ghosty Voting and do your patriotic local music duty.  For inspiration, I’ve compiled the first ever Monday MEGAMixteen.  It’s double the normal number of songs for the same price (translation: it’s […]

Ten for Your Attention This Thursday:...

Most of the songs on today’s edition of Ten for Your Attention This Thursday are recent releases. In the case of Particular People, however, their album Meat for Particular People came out early this summer. It’s a release that probably would have flown under my radar had it not been for longtime GOBL fan and friend Shelley. […]

Monday Mixteen: 9/11/17

Monday Mixteen 20170911

I guess it’s time that I do a real Monday Mixteen with real comments with each songs.  Because you’ve missed The Ghost’s commentary.  Or at least that’s what I’m deluding myself into believing. Jessie Frye, “Honey” What better way to start the playlist than with a sweet pop song from Ms. Frye. Get it? Sweet, […]

(Half of a) Ten for Your Attention Th...

I know, it’s been eons since the last Ten for Your Attention, and I’m still only doing half the typical number.  The truth is, I’ve missed out on so much that it’s even hard to know where to start.  I will remind you, however, that if you’d like for me to bring attention to your […]

Monday Mixteen: 9/4/17

It’s Labor Day, but The Ghost was hard at work creating another Monday Mixteen.  OK, “hard at work” is stretching matters a bit, especially since this week’s edition is mostly without comment.  Actually, I’ll give you two comments, free of charge. Notice how the Garrett Owen and Vandoliers songs are placed back to back?  That’s […]

Video Wednesday (VW): 8/30/17

I have been a Ghost of few words as of late.  The words shall remain sparse on this Video Wednesday post as well.  I hope my lack of commentary can be forgiven thanks to sharing these two great new videos (and the lovely Volkswagen photo above). First off is a video of Karyna Micaela performing […]

Where The Ghost Will Be Tonight: 8/26...

The month began with the 10 year anniversary of the blog.  Yesterday was the birthday of the man behind The Ghost.  The celebration of said birthday, however, is going down tonight.  So where will The Ghost be, you ask?  The answer is more complex than you might think. The beginning of the night is straight […]

Monday Mixteen 20170821

The Ghost needs to get some things off his chest, and those thoughts will be coming soon.  In the meantime, there seems to be a plethora of great tunes coming out right now.  Not only that, but during my time of silence, there’s plenty worth listening to that The Ghost has not shared.  It seemed […]

Ten Years

Ten years ago, I was frustrated with the state of the local music scene.  I said to myself that “it wasn’t like the good old days.”  Upon realizing how much like an old fogy I sounded like, it was time to take action.  And so The Ghost was born.  It’s been a long, strange, ten […]

Video Wednesday (VW): 5/10/17

Wow, has it really been since August that I’ve done a Video Wednesday?  The Ghost is slacking big time.  I mean, how am I ever going to earn that Volkswagen endorsement with such lack of frequency?  There have been too many videos I’ve missed during that time period to fully catch up, and instead I […]
