Monday Mixteen: 9/2/19

Monday Mixteen 20190902

Today is Labor Day, which to many signifies the end of Summer. With Fall right around the corner, that can only mean one thing. No, I’m not not talking about Pumpkin Spice latte, or Pumpkin Spice body wash, or Pumpkin Spice Whiskey. I’m talking about Ghosty Awards. This year will mark the 5th Annual Ghosty […]

This has been a fabulous weekend for The Ghost. I got to celebrate my birthday weekend with family and friends, and of course, I got to see some great live music courtesy of Pleasant Grove. Me thinks The Ghost has been partied out, however, so there will be no commentary from me today. Instead, I […]

I’m not gonna wax as poetic as usual. Short and sweet. Keep it about the music. Texicana: new band featuring GOBL faves Chris J Norwood and MD Wulf, among others. Cool cover of a tune written by Tom Petty. Curious to see what their originals sound like. Bet they’ll play originals this Thursday for their […]

Last week, I announced on Facebook that I would be taking a break from recording episodes of Ghost of Blind Lemon Radio.  As the station’s Program Director, I want to help in developing some new shows.  I also want to spend more time contributing to the blog. New episodes of the radio show will return […]

The theme for today’s Monday Mixteen is pretty straight forward: all sixteen tracks, as of the time of the publication of this playlist, have less than 1,000 streams.  Not only that, none of these artists have a song with over 1,000 streams. This time, however, I have a measurable goal for the playlist.  By next […]

Fresh Ghosts - Tessa Morin

As I mention in yesterday’s Monday Mixteen, this week marks the twelfth anniversary of the start of the Ghost of Blind Lemon blog. This week’s episode of Ghost of Blind Lemon Radio will largely be a look back at some of my favorite tracks over those years. While there will be a few newer tracks […]

This Thursday will mark the twelve year anniversary of the blog, and with that anniversary comes twelve years of the second identity I took on: The Ghost. I certainly chose the name Ghost of Blind Lemon in part as a tribute to Dallas’ first major blues musician to take residence here, Blind Lemon Jefferson. But […]

Politics are an area that I’ve always been reluctant to discuss on the blog.  After all, this is a music blog, not a political one.  With the level of vitriol being spread in our country right now, however, I feel that I cannot continue to stay silent.  The level of racism and hate being spouted […]

Show Announcement: GOBL Friday the 13...

Sixty-two years ago, a young boy drowned at Camp Crystal Lake.  The camp counselors failed to save them because they were, uh, busy doing other things.  That young boy later grew into a man who would go on to terrorize others at Camp Crystal Lake, and eventually, around the world.  That young boy was… not […]

Monday Mixteen 20190715

After last week’s Monday Mixteen without a central theme, The Ghost did not want two weeks in a row for there to be no coherent thread between the songs.  Alas, I was finding myself wanting a variety of styles within this week’s playlist.  I settled on something of a compromise: an indie music themed Monday […]
