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.

  • What I’ve Missed in May Alright, so May hasn’t been my month.  In fact, this is the first blog post of May, and the entire month happened with zero episodes of GOBL Radio.  Here’s hoping that the summer months are kinder to Ghosts.  In fact, you can count on more announcements, articles, etc. from GOBL in the coming days and [...]
  • The Ghostified Gathering For a week or so, Festify was all the rage on social media. It was an app that created fictitious festival lineups based on one’s Spotify listening habits.

  • Monday Mixteen: 4/29/19 I had some ideas of what to cook up for today’s Monday Mixteen, but I just couldn’t figure out the right musical ingredients for the playlist.  On top of that, The Ghost just didn’t feel like serving up the dish of a carefully curated themed playlist.  So I did what people do when they’re lazy [...]
