Monday Mixteen 20190401

You may be aware that this weekend is the Deep Ellum Arts Festival, and that Deep Ellum Radio has its own Artist’s Court Stage this year. You might have even heard that The Ghost is curating his own day’s worth of music on said stage. So yes, this is gonna be a good year for […]

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 […]

So, you want to know what The Ghosts #1 song of 2016 was? Patience, grasshopper. We haven’t even begun the Top 5.  The four songs spotlighted today are more than worth your attention.  Each track has made a major impact upon The Ghost this year.  Hopefully, they’ve made an equally strong impact on you as […]

It begins tomorrow. What is it, you ask?  It’s The Ghost’s countdown of the Top 101 songs of 2016.  The Ghost has been hard at work, compiling all the best songs of the year, ranking each song carefully.  Each day, a certain portion of the countdown will be revealed, with the number one song being […]

The Ghost has not felt well the past few days.  As a result, I will not be adding commentary on this week’s playlist.  In fact, this playlist is sort of a “comfort music” style playlist, featuring newer and older songs that just feel comfortable and good to my ears.  Not to worry, however, as The […]

First of all, thank you for all the wonderful response to my open letter to Dallas.  It’s obvious that The Ghost is not the only one frustrated with the status of things in our music community.  My hope is that this begins a dialog with musicians, venue owners, booking agents, and music fans. In the […]

Ducado Vega and Zenya Vi, “Blindfold” “Blindfold” is the perfect blending of what Ducado and Zenya are: a funky yet rocking mix that draws equal parts influence from Prince and Evanescence.  Actually, that statement isn’t accurate.  The song is a perfect blending of what they were.  Their new EP, Black OuT, looks to be the […]

So, have you check out my list of the Best Albums of 2016 (so far)?  I’d encourage you to do so now if you haven’t already.  Today’s Sunday Spotify 16 is something of an extension to that list.  The Ghost has included alternate favorite choices from certain albums and EPs.  In addition, I’m mentioning several […]

OK, so technically today is slightly past the halfway still.  Close enough, right?  I don’t have the time or energy to wax as poetically as these albums deserve.  Still, it’s worth noting my favorite albums and EPs thus year.  For a change, I’m allowing both Texas and “Sorta Texas” albums in the list.  One thing […]

Sunday Spotify Sixteen: 6/5/2016

Last week, the nominees for the Fort Worth Weekly Music Awards were announced, and it serves as a reminder that Dallas’ sister city is awash in talent too.  Many of these artists are regulars on my playlist, whereas some of these acts were new (and pleasant) discoveries to me.  I must note that there are […]
