Often times, there are more awards to give out than time to give awards at a ceremony. Such is the case for The Ghosty Awards. Some of these you may have heard announced on KNON’s Tuesday Morning Blend show when I was a guest host. Others are just now being revealed. Here is the list […]

Video Wednesday: 11/1/17

redbeetle

Long day.  I don’t feel like writing.  So here, I’m sticking you in front of your smart phone/computer screen/whatever and putting some videos on to entertain you. Andrew Holmes, “England” French 75, “Your Love” Girl Blue, “Dreams” Hello Shannon, “Slowly” The Lash Outs, “Sha La La” And… that’s all I got for you today.  Come […]

Monday Mixteen 10/30/17: Part II

Monday Mixteen 20171030part2

The Ghost has always thought it to be rather cliched to do songs about ghosts, ghouls, goblins, and the like for Halloween.  Instead of using the obvious imagery, I like to use a different comparison for this holiday.  Halloween is a time for dressing up as a different creature.  The closest musical kin to dressing […]

Do not let the cover photo give you the wrong idea.  It’s not that The Ghost is only about the benjamins.  No, the blog is truly a labor of love.  Having said that, there are many endeavors that I would like to take on, and some extra money would help me better pursue those endeavors.  […]

Ten Years

Processed by: Helicon Filter;  OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Ten years ago, I was frustrated with the state of the local music scene.  I said to myself that “it wasn’t like the good old days.”  Upon realizing how much like an old fogy I sounded like, it was time to take action.  And so The Ghost was born.  It’s been a long, strange, ten […]

Ten for Your Attention: 5/8/17

somogyi

You know the detail. Ten songs that deserve your attention. Nothing more, nothing less. The first track comes courtesy of former Monahans kead singer Greg Vanderpool.  He sent me an email to attend his recent Twilite Lounge show, which I was not able to attend.  I have, however, repeatedly listened to “To Violet”, the lead […]

Silas Nello (Feat. Jenna Clark), “Tell Me What You Need” It would be rather predictable of The Ghost to begin this playlist with a Kinsley August song.  After all, yours truly is hosting A Tale of Three Folks at Plano ArtsCenter, with Kinsley headlining the event.  The Ghost, however, does not want to be obvious […]

Atlantis Aquarius, “Full Moon” Yes, I’m still on my Atlantis Aquarius kick.  When southern rock is this soulful and groovy, why wouldn’t The Ghost still be all over that?  Frankly, I can’t think of a better way to start off this playlist. Rania Khoury, “Wanna Be Your Wife” Ms. Khoury has returned with a new […]

Ten for Your Attention This Thursday:...

bethjames

Back in the days when Dallas Observer used to have music editors, people would often suggest that I apply for the position.  They would say that my perspective on the music scene and my writing skills would be just what the DO needed.  And without fail, I would accept the compliment, but never tried for […]

Catching Up With The Ghost

bljsquare

Alright, let’s get a few things out of the way.  2017 has not been a good year for The Ghost.  My readers probably figured that out already, considering the fact that this is the first post on the blog all year long.  It would be wonderful if I could declare that The Ghost would be […]
