Monday Mixteen: 7/8/19

Monday Mixteen 20190708

I once received advice on the Monday Mixteen that it’s good to have a theme for the playlist.  Most of the time, I try to heed that advice.  In recent playlists, I have focused on musical genres (such as country), promoting events (like my Acoustiganza), or promoting shows happening on a given weekend.  To be […]

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 […]

So, about these Ghosty Awards… voting is still open.  You do remember that, right?  You can still vote until November 18th at 11:59 CST.  Of course, that leaves the following question: who should you vote for?  I’m not one to try to sway the voting, but I do believe in an informed electorate… er… readership.  […]

Ghosty season has arrived.  Voting begins today, and will continue until Saturday, November 18th at 11:59 CST.  Just click on the link that says Ghosty Voting and do your patriotic local music duty.  For inspiration, I’ve compiled the first ever Monday MEGAMixteen.  It’s double the normal number of songs for the same price (translation: it’s […]

We’re now down to eight acts, and I’m attaching their Bandcamp widgets so you can sample before you vote. Have to have an informed electorate, you […]

Back in 2007-2008 or so, Hunter Hawk began a cool feature on what I believe was the then Guide Live website (forgive my bad memory, as I’ve slept since then). He did a March Madness style battle of local bands. I loved the concept, and I regretted that he did not make it a yearly […]
