Monday Mixteen: 4/9/18

Scrabble_Old

If there is one board game that The Ghost loves, it would be Scrabble.  It’s the perfect merger between my right brain (creativity with words) vs. left brain (mathematical strategies with point values).  I’ve been playing for decades, and even once earned the affectionate nickname “Scrabble playing bastard.”  OK, so perhaps that was not meant […]

Monday Mixteen: 4/2/18

Monday Mixteen Template 20180402

So, it’s been awhile since The Ghost has compiled a Monday Mixteen playlist.  Truth is, most of my musical creative energy goes towards my radio show.  If by some miracle you’re not familiar with the show, here’s what you need to know: it airs Wednesday night 7-9 PM CST on Deep Ellum Radio. Still, I […]

Tell me, do you love pop music?  I’m not talking about Chainsmokers type Top 40 stuff.  I’m talking about Beatles, Monkees, Ben Folds Five, Matthew Sweet, or any earworm of a song with a melody so bouncy that it puts a big old smile on the face.  If great pop music is something that excites […]

Kontrast Ticket Giveaway

Kontrast synthfest

This is an event that The Ghost has not discussed enough, or at least not on this blog. Kontrast is a showcase happening Saturday at Deep Ellum Art Co. that is bound to appeal to lovers of synth-pop and synth-heavy tunes. The lineup features Mirror Box (a new project featuring Sean Kirkpatrick), Secrecies (featuring Ghosty […]

New Music: Kinsley August, “Sno...

Kinsley August

If you missed my show last night on Deep Ellum radio, then you missed the debut of “Snow”, a brand new track from Kinsley August. He already debuted “I Was Wrong”, a track that has a slight hint of country tinge to it. “Snow”, on the other hand, ventures closer to the dreamy pop sounds […]

Monday Mixteen: 2/19/18

Monday Mixteen 20180219

I’ve designed this special playlist in honor of President’s Day. It’s an acrostic playlist, and here’s a little refresher from your high school English class: an acrostic poem forms a word with the first letter of each verse in the poem. Except in this case, it’s the song titles that form not a word, but […]

Monday Mixteen: 2/12/18

Monday Mixteen 20180212

The Ghost has been rather busy with Directing the Programming at Deep Ellum Radio.  As a result, the blog has been a bit neglected.  So today, to “celebrate” Valentine’s Day, I am bringing back the Monday Mixteen.  I put the word celebrate in quotes because anyone who knows me realizes that I don’t celebrate that […]

New Music: Richard Gilbert, “To...

Richard Gilbert - Daybreak

There will not be a Ten for Your Attention This Tuesday, but I did not want to miss this opportunity to debut a new song.  Denton singer-songwriter Richard Gilbert is letting me share with you a new track, “To Live This Life Again”.  It’s from his forthcoming EP, Daybreak.  For those unfamiliar with Mr. Gilbert, his […]

Monday Mixteen: 1/22/18

South by Southwest may be over a month away, but it seems as if there’s already plenty of talk regarding the acts that made the cut.  Today’s Monday Mixteen gives you an opportunity to sample some of the Texas acts that will be performing.  In addition to some very familiar names, there are a few […]

Spreading the Love: Emmeline & M...

The Ghost is bringing back a feature called Spreading the Love, but this time there’s a twist.  Instead of myself writing about an artist I feel is worthy of attention, a local musician will be writing about one of his/her local favorite artists.  It’s only appropriate that the first guest columnist is Ellen Hinton (aka […]
