Last week, I received an email from Jeff Gage of the Dallas Observer, letting me know it was time to send in nominations for this year’s Dallas Observer Music Awards.  I’ve been given the privilege to be on the nominating committee since 2008, and making these decisions is never easy.

It’s been a few weeks since I’ve made a playlist for my readers.  I suppose it’s about time I create one, right?  This time, I’ve chosen Spotify for the playlist.  While the service may not shell out the big bucks for each play, it at least helps the artists earn a little money, right?  With […]

Perhaps it’s just me, but I’ve always had a fascination regarding the process of how an individual comes to write a song.  I often wonder what events inspired the song, and what the song means to the person singing it.  Having the Ghost of Blind Lemon blog allows me the opportunity to get the answer […]

When trying to bring people in for reading the newly revamped GOBL site, bribery would seem like a very useful tool.  The kind folks at Granada Theater have given me two pairs of tickets to give away for The Orange’s show on Saturday, June 20th.  Let me just say that I have been excited about […]
