Sunday Spotify 16: Christmas 2016

IMG_8232

As we speak, Santa is probably en route through America, giving toys to all the good boys and girls across the land. Mr. Claus is really good at delivering goods with his reindeer and elf friends, but he’s not much of a playlist maker. So while Santa is doing his thing, The Ghost will continue […]

Sunday Spotify 16: 6/12/16

Last night, I had nearly completed my list of songs that would make up today’s Spotify Sixteen.  As usual, I had planned a mix of current songs, discussion on upcoming events, and the like to discuss.  I went to bed, ready to finalize this playlist upon waking up in the morning. Then I woke up […]

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 […]

I’m doing something I very rarely do.  I’m letting another person take the reins of today’s Sunday Spotify Sixteen.  This playlist was carefully curated by a person who means the world to me.  A person who has been there for me through the thick and thin, and I know will always continue to be there […]

Sunday Spotify Sixteen Squared: 4/10/...

So, I had this genius idea.  I wanted to do sixteen of my Sunday Spotify Sixteen playlist in one day.  Each playlist would encompass one year of the 21st century, ranging from 2001 to the unfinished year of 2016.  And for the record, the year 2000 is still part of the 20th century.  But, I […]

Let the March Musical Madness Begin!

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 […]

Ronnie Fauss, “Everyone Deserves a Merry Christmas” Now that Thanksgiving is over, I assume it’s safe to start playing a few Christmas songs.  Here’s one I’ve always loved from Mr. Fauss. Pentacon Six, “Nobody Walks” Speaking of Christmas songs, Kevin Buchanan’s latest project is in the midst of recording a Christmas song.  In the meantime, […]

The Full List of Ghosty Winners

The 1st Annual Ghosty Awards

First of all, I have so many thank you’s to give, as there are so many people who helped make last night something very special.  Thanks to the entire staff at The Underpass for being gracious and wonderful hosts, and for making sure everything went smoothly.  Obviously, I have to thank the musicians.  Camille Schuh, […]

Sunday Spotify Sixteen: 11/8/15

The Ghosty Awards are quickly approaching.  Two weeks from today on November 22nd, the ceremony happens at The Underpass.  Not only that, but next Sunday marks the end of the voting period.  I figure now is a good time to examine some of the nominees in this week’s playlist.  After you give it a listen, […]

Confession time: The Ghost is afraid of wasps. I don’t mean that I dislike wasps. I mean I have a flat out phobia of wasps. When I see one near me, I freeze for a second before reaching for the Raid. Wasps are not good in my book. At all. My first reaction about hearing […]
