GOBL Radio: May 2018 Highlights

GOBL Highlights May 2018

I know, your life has likely felt empty and meaningless without a new episode of Ghost of Blind Lemon Radio this week on Deep Ellum Radio.  Not to fear, the radio show will return next week.  In the meantime, here’s a special playlist for you.  Since some of you may not be able to tune in Wednesdays 7-9 PM (or for the rebroadcast Thursdays 1-3 PM), it seems only right that I should let you sample some of what you’re missing.

Every month now, The Ghost will create a playlist, approximate 1½ hours long, spotlight some of the best tracks featured on my show this month.  Most of the tracks will be local, though I’ve included several songs featured in The Ghost’s Road Trip segment.  This playlist also leans heavier on new releases, though a few older tracks are thrown in for good measure.

Admittedly, it’s not the same as listening to my radio show.  On the down side, you’re missing out on all of my commentary.  Of course, it would be easy to argue that missing the speaking parts is the upside.  It’s all a matter of perspective.

  1. Big Red Ants, “Spoonful”
  2. Cut Throat Finches, “New Age”
  3. Rude King, “Coming Back to You”

  • Monday Mixteen: 8/5/19 The theme for today’s Monday Mixteen is pretty straight forward: all sixteen tracks, as of the time of the publication of this playlist, have less than 1,000 streams.  Not only that, none of these artists have a song with over 1,000 streams. This time, however, I have a measurable goal for the playlist.  By next [...]
  • Monday Mixteen: 7/22/19 Politics are an area that I’ve always been reluctant to discuss on the blog.  After all, this is a music blog, not a political one.  With the level of vitriol being spread in our country right now, however, I feel that I cannot continue to stay silent.  The level of racism and hate being spouted [...]
