Take Two: Handing You the Keys to the Playlist

I tried this about a month ago, with limited success.  This time, I’ve changed things up a bit.  No longer will I be asking you to select songs and write about them.  I’ll do the writing, and I’m even selecting the candidates for which songs will be on the playlist.  I sorted through eighty of the most tagged artists in GOBL history (on both the new site and the original), and selected a song from each artist to be put on the list.  I’ve done the work, now all you have to do is vote.  That’s it.  Vote, and your job is done.

Some of you may think I’m doing this out of laziness, or to get artists to share links on social media to drive up web traffic.  And sure, I can’t deny that both are nice benefits of this.  But there’s another, more significant issue here.  Next Monday, I plan to open up voting on the Ghosty awards to the public.  This is the first time I’ve ever had voting on the blog, so I wanted to test things out beforehand.  That way, I can work out any potential glitches prior to the start of voting.

Below you’ll find the ballot.  In each category, five randomly selected songs will be nominated for a particular slot on next week’s playlist.  The song with the most votes in each of the sixteen categories will make it onto next week’s Sunday Spotify Sixteen.  So do your patriotic duty as a citizen, and exercise your right to vote for local music!

  • The Monday Mixteen: 8/17/20 Anyone can make a playlist.  Even any hack can make a Monday Mixteen playlist, as that jerk from Coffeebreak Cafe proved last week.  It takes real talent, however, to make The Monday Mixteen.  Only The Ghost has The Skills to pay The Bills, so to speak.  I’ve brought back a concept I used a few [...]
  • Monday Mixteen Takeover by Coffeebrea... So, this isn’t The Ghost.  This is the head barista from Coffeebreak Cafe, a new show on Deep Ellum Radio.  I found The Ghost’s password laying around, so I decided to take this opportunity to promote my radio show.  I’m sure some might say that this is “hacking into a website without permission”, but I [...]
  • Monday Mixteen: 8/3/2020 Perhaps you’ve seen #womensupportingwomen trending on both Facebook and Instagram.  The Ghost is obviously happy to see women opening show support to each other.  But what if you’re a man who wants to show support to women?  Or for that matter, a Ghost who supports women? When I saw the trending hashtag, I felt compelled [...]
  • Monday Mixteen: 7/27/2020 Alright, so the blog has been neglected as of late.  I’ve spent more time focusing on the Ghost of Blind Lemon Radio show, as well as the running of Deep Ellum Radio itself, than on writing or producing content for the blog.  Well, for the next month, I’m taking a break from recording new episodes [...]
