Monday Mixteen: 1/21/19

Monday Mixteen MLK 2019

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 enough to simply use his name.  I started thinking about what Rev. King stood for.  He spoke of the idea that all men were created equal.  He fought for equality for all and inclusion.  So in that spirit, I strived to make this playlist as diverse as possible.  The musicians that make up these acts cross over lines of race, ethnicity, age, gender, sexual preference, and religion.  It shows that Dallas’ music community is every bit as diverse as this city we live in.  I hope these tunes bring you some joy today, and that your heart will be full of the same spirit of love as Rev. King.

So, continuing in that unorthodox vain, why not do a [...]
  • Monday Mixteen: 5/4/2020 As this month began, Governor Abbott officially started the process of reopening the state.  Malls and restaurants are among the places that have been reopened, albeit with restrictions.  Personally, The Ghost recommends you follow the hidden advice within a previous playlist, but that’s just my two cents worth. Whether the restrictions remain lifted, or the [...]

  • Monday Mixteen: 4/20/20 You’d think that The Ghost might do some sort of clever 4/20 theme on the Monday Mixteen, but you’d be wrong.  I mean, if you want, I can post my favorite Tomorrowpeople song in honor of the day.  Here you go… Feeling better now? OK, now onto the real Monday Mixteen. I came up with [...]
