Monday Mixteen: 7/1/19

Monday Mixteen 20190701

So you all know that July 4th is Independence Day, which marks the anniversary of the U.S. declaring itself its own country.  I bet you didn’t know, however, that July 4th is National Country Music Day.  It seems appropriate, as I’m not sure there’s a musical style that’s as distinctively American is Country.  In honor […]

What I’ve Missed in May

Alright, so May hasn’t been my month.  In fact, this is the first blog post of May, and the entire month happened with zero episodes of GOBL Radio.  Here’s hoping that the summer months are kinder to Ghosts.  In fact, you can count on more announcements, articles, etc. from GOBL in the coming days and […]

The Ghost’s Top 101 of 2018: #7...

GOBL Top 101 of 2018 Pt 2

Another day, another reveal of countdown songs.  Yesterday, you saw #101-71.  #70 is something of a rebel.  It’s one of one two songs in the countdown that is currently unavailable on Spotify.  You can take that up with Starside R&D on January 5, when they perform at Double-Wide along with Kid Fight and Sandovall.  So […]

Monday Mixteen 20180827

Earlier this month was the 11 year anniversary of the beginning of this blog.  The blog anniversary is not to be confused with the birthday of myself, which was Saturday.  Thanks to all who wished me a happy birthday, as well as those who helped me celebrate it this Saturday.  In honor of that birthday, […]

Scrabble_Old

If there is one board game that The Ghost loves, it would be Scrabble.  It’s the perfect merger between my right brain (creativity with words) vs. left brain (mathematical strategies with point values).  I’ve been playing for decades, and even once earned the affectionate nickname “Scrabble playing bastard.”  OK, so perhaps that was not meant […]

Ten for Your Attention This Thursday:...

Most of the songs on today’s edition of Ten for Your Attention This Thursday are recent releases. In the case of Particular People, however, their album Meat for Particular People came out early this summer. It’s a release that probably would have flown under my radar had it not been for longtime GOBL fan and friend Shelley. […]

Ten for Your Attention: 5/8/17

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 […]

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 […]

The Ghost 101 Countdown of 2016: 101-...

The Ghost has a love-hate relationship with year-end lists. In reality, it falls mostly on the love side. There’s something exciting about reading a person’s (or publication’s) choice of best songs, albums, etc. Sometimes the lists align with one’s personal perspective, and other times, not so much. Either way, these lists serve as a time […]
