Monday Mixteen: 7/6/2020

Monday Mixteen 20200706

By some miracle, we have survived the first half of 2020. Heaven only knows what will come our way in the second half of this crazy story of 2020. Will it be Revenge of the Murder Hornets, a tornado with nuclear funnels, or perhaps a good old-fashioned asteroid to wipe out humanity?

Whatever 2020 throws our way next, let’s take a moment to reflect on some great releases in the first half of the year. This playlist focuses on some really great tunes that, for whatever reason, never made it on a Monday Mixteen or on the GOBL Radio Show (shameless plug: send your mp3’s to ghost@deepellumradio.com for airplay consideration).

You might think that this playlist would seem like a casserole made of stale leftovers, but the truth is this Monday Mixteen is anything but that. It serves as a reminder that there’s enough talent here in the metroplex (and the state of Texas) that it’s easy for musical gems to go unnoticed for far too long. No, this is not a stale casserole, but a fine gumbo with a variety of musical spices that are sure to please your eardrum’s palette. Yes, I know your palette is associated with the mouth and not the ear. Work with me and my metaphors, will ya?

  4. Charley Crockett, “Run Horse Run”
  5. The Prof.Fuzz 63, “Nadine Codeine”
  6. Ego Jones, “Far Between”

  8. Jaime Saso, “River Wash Us Away”
  9. Tayla Parx, “Dance Alone”
  10. Ting Tang Tina, “Honeybee”
  11. Joshua Ray Walker, “Cupboard”
  12. Cory Cross, “Lay You Down with Me”

  • The Monday Mixteen: 8/17/20 Anyone can make a playlist.  Even any hack can make a Monday Mixteen playlist, as that jerk from Coffeebreak Cafe proved last week.  It takes real talent, however, to make The Monday Mixteen.  Only The Ghost has The Skills to pay The Bills, so to speak.  I’ve brought back a concept I used a few [...]
  • Monday Mixteen: 8/3/2020 Perhaps you’ve seen #womensupportingwomen trending on both Facebook and Instagram.  The Ghost is obviously happy to see women opening show support to each other.  But what if you’re a man who wants to show support to women?  Or for that matter, a Ghost who supports women? When I saw the trending hashtag, I felt compelled [...]
  • Monday Mixteen: 7/27/2020 Alright, so the blog has been neglected as of late.  I’ve spent more time focusing on the Ghost of Blind Lemon Radio show, as well as the running of Deep Ellum Radio itself, than on writing or producing content for the blog.  Well, for the next month, I’m taking a break from recording new episodes [...]
