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.

  1. The Fibs, “Cut Hands”

  11. Cody Lynn Boyd, “I’m Gonna Give You Anything”
  12. Francine Thirteen, “The Kingmaker”
  13. Xuan, “Not the Man”

  15. Trauma Ray, “Starve”
  16. Blue Apollo, “When You Ask for Rain”

  • Monday Mixteen: 1/21/19 To celebrate the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday today, I felt it should be something that was incorporated in today’s Monday Mixteen.  The Ghost’s first instinct was to do another acrostic playlist, with the song titles spelling out his name (minus the Jr. part).  While I kept with that theme, I felt it was not [...]
  • Monday Mixteen: 1/14/19 You may notice that the songs in the below playlist are in the alternating order of the letters S & M. Yes, The Ghost realizes that this theme may be rather controversial. I could have easily shied away from it, but it seems pointless to try to hide one’s deepest desires. Several readers will find [...]
  • The Ghost’s Top 101 of 2018: #5... Now that we’ve made it into the Top 50, I suppose The Ghost should add a little commentary for each track.  Fine, I can do that, especially since I only have to do that for ten songs.  Yes, it’s an unusually short playlist today.  That’s because I’ve saved the remaining Top 40 for Sunday afternoon.  [...]
  • The Ghost’s Top 101 of 2018: #7... Another day, another reveal of countdown songs.  Yesterday, you saw #101-71.  #70 is something of a rebel.  It’s one of one two songs in the countdown that is currently unavailable on Spotify.  You can take that up with Starside R&D on January 5, when they perform at Double-Wide along with Kid Fight and Sandovall.  So [...]

For the next three days, I will be highlighting songs that were among the best and most defining tracks for me in 2018. Today, we start at #101, [...]
