Monday Mixteen: 10/1/2018

Monday Mixteen 20181001

September has been a crazy month for me.  For the majority of the month, The Ghost did not record any radio shows.  Blogging has largely been limited to the usual Monday Mixteen posts.  Still, there were some notable events this month.  I did get to premier a new Salim Nourallah track.  I shared some cool videos by Cody Lynn Boyd, Jackie Venson, and Tippy Balady.  And then of course there’s the whole Ghosty nominations thing (don’t forget, you can vote once per day).

Even with all that, however, there hasn’t been as much focus on new music as The Ghost would like.  So on today’s Monday Mixteen, I look back on several of the best tracks released over the past month.  And yes, there will be a new episode of Ghost of Blind Lemon Radio airing this Wednesday at 7 PM CST.  I may play a few of these artists Wednesday night, but there’s not as much overlap between this Monday Mixteen and Wednesday’s show as you’d expect.  So enjoy today’s Monday Mixteen, and take time out Wednesday night to hear The Ghost’s return to radio.  Do it, for the sake of local music.
