Sunday Spotify 16: Christmas 2016

IMG_8232

As we speak, Santa is probably en route through America, giving toys to all the good boys and girls across the land. Mr. Claus is really good at delivering goods with his reindeer and elf friends, but he’s not much of a playlist maker. So while Santa is doing his thing, The Ghost will continue doing his thing. I’m delivering you a fine playlist of sixteen local (and Texas) Christmas songs. I hope these songs bring you some much needed holiday cheer in what’s been a rough year for most. And whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Festivus, or none of the above, I wish you nothing but joy this season.

  1. Reverend Horton Heat, “Frosty the Snowman”
  2. Old 97’s, “Here It Is Christmas Time”
  3. Rahim Quazi, “Merry Christmas Now”
  4. Calhoun, “(Anywhere But) Home for the Holidays”
  5. Becky Middleton, “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas”
  6. THe BAcksliders, “That’s How We Do Christmas”
  7. Sharks in the Deep End, “Don’t Be a Jerk This Christmas”
  8. The Polyphonic Spree, “Happy Xmas (War Is Over)”
  9. Chomsky, “Christmas Time Is Here”
  10. Quiet Company, “O Holy Night”
  11. dj ewi, “We Wish You a Merry Christmas”
  12. Vanessa Peters, “The Christmas Song”
  13. Brave Combo, “Feliz Navidad”
  14. The Mastersons, “This Holiday’s No Holiday (Without You)”
  15. Robert Earl Keen, “Merry Christmas from the Family”
  16. Black Tie Dynasty, “Christmas Time”

  • 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 [...]

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: 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 [...]
