GOBL Radio: May 2018 Highlights

GOBL Highlights May 2018

I know, your life has likely felt empty and meaningless without a new episode of Ghost of Blind Lemon Radio this week on Deep Ellum Radio.  Not to fear, the radio show will return next week.  In the meantime, here’s a special playlist for you.  Since some of you may not be able to tune […]

The Top 101 Songs of 2017: #80-71

I feel kind of guilty for not providing more commentary on these lists. I’ll change that tomorrow… maybe. In the meantime, how about songs #80-71? You’d like that, wouldn’t you? Emily Bell, “Can’t Talk Back” Loafers, “Bobby” Brightwire, “Despite the Grey” Eye of the Storm Demo by Brightwire Ask for Joy, “Deep in the Night” […]

Monday Mixteen: 10/2/17

Back in my youth, Bryan Adams recorded a song called “Kids Wanna Rock.”  Question the messenger if you will, but Mr. Adams certainly understood the youth of that time period.  The Ghost has noticed that, lately, many of the kids could not care less about rocking out.  It seems these young whippersnappers would rather dance […]

The Ghost 101 Countdown: The Bottom H...

Today’s reveal on the countdown will show songs #60-51. Instead of just displaying those ten songs, however, it seemed like a good time to do a full on recap. So here you go, #101 all the way to #51. That completes the bottom half of the countdown. Alright, so technically it’s a little less than […]

So, if you missed it yesterday, The Ghost has started his year end countdown.  Unlike previous years, this is the first year that Texas songs (and “Sorta Texas” songs) are eligible to chart on the countdown.  Also, you’ve probably noticed that in past countdowns, I limit each artist to one song.  This year, I’m making […]

Sunday Spotify 16: 10/9/16

Matt Tedder, “Down the Road” Last night, Matt Tedder proved that he knows how to put on a show.  Of course, I can’t give all the credit to Tedder.  His entire band was spot on, with drummer Matt Mabe and harmonica player Paul Harrington standing out in particular.  But if you missed it, don’t feel […]

Sunday Spotify 16: 9/18/16

Simply put, The Ghost has not had the words in him lately.  Too many stresses, not enough time.  There are songs, stories, and bits of news that I have not been able to share, and for that, I apologize.  I hope to start to resume writing at a greater volume soon.  I even hope to […]

Sunday Spotify Sixteen Squared: Part ...

I suppose I can no longer say it’s a Sunday Spotify Sixteen, being Monday and all.  Still, I wanted to share the remainder of these playlists with you.  I’ll admit, these playlists were ordered alphabetically by artist.  Normally, The Ghost prefers to order the songs in such a way that there’s an ebb and flow […]

On the 5th Day of Christmas, GOBL Gav...

Five, as in Dezi 5! It seems that lately, the name Dezi 5 is pretty darn close to inescapable.  He’s been getting lots of positive media coverage, and there’s a reason for that.  The tunes on his EP, Crucifixion on the Dance Floor, are absolutely delicious bits of dance-pop sure to get people moving on the […]

Power Quartet: Weekend of 7/10

I couldn’t narrow it down to three shows this week.  I counted eighteen shows listed on my calendar this weekend, showing just how strong our scene really is.  So here are my four favorite shows of this weekend. Ishi/Wrestlers/Sealion/Blue, The Misfit (Tonight At Trees) Red Bull Sound Select always puts on solid lineups, but I […]
