Tell me, do you love pop music?  I’m not talking about Chainsmokers type Top 40 stuff.  I’m talking about Beatles, Monkees, Ben Folds Five, Matthew Sweet, or any earworm of a song with a melody so bouncy that it puts a big old smile on the face.  If great pop music is something that excites […]

Monday Mixteen20180101

2017 was a crazy roller coaster ride of a year for The Ghost.  I went the first two and a half months of the year without a peep of the blog due to life stresses.  After that, posts were sporadic as best.  In fact, The Ghost came close to taking an “indefinite hiatus” from the […]

First of all, thank you for all the wonderful response to my open letter to Dallas.  It’s obvious that The Ghost is not the only one frustrated with the status of things in our music community.  My hope is that this begins a dialog with musicians, venue owners, booking agents, and music fans.

Forgive the brevity of the post, but I want to get this published before tonight’s Quaker City Night Hawks show at Granada Theater.  I’ll be going, and I’d recommend you follow suit.  I’m not waxing poetic over any of the tracks today.  It’s not that the tracks aren’t worthy of it, but getting ready to […]
