Monday Mixteen: 7/16/18

Monday Mixteen Template 20180716

There’s a lot that The Ghost doesn’t like about the summer: the heat, the wasps, the heat… did I mention I don’t like the heat?  One part of summer that The Ghost does like, however, is Free Week at Granada Theater.  For the course of about four days, the venue will host great local and […]

In case you missed the announcement, The Ghost will be celebrating his 11 year anniversary at Double-Wide on August 4th with psuper psychedelic pshowcase.  Sorry, The Ghost gets a little fixated on alliteration.  The point is that Sunbuzzed, Corner Suns, and Caved Mountains will be providing the sounds at Double-Wide for what is bound to […]

GOBL Radio: June 2018 Highlights

Blue Light Bold June 2018 GOBL

You kids today have it so easy. You got your podcasts that you can listen to at whatever moment your heart desires. When I was your age, we only had radio shows, and if you didn’t listen to it when it came on, you’d miss it forever. Oh, and we had to walk uphill for […]

OK, so I’m a bit late in posting this on a Monday.  I do sort of have an excuse.  Yesterday, since The Ghost was lacking inspiration, I decided to make this an all request edition of the Monday Mixteen.  So really, it’s everyone else’s fault for not getting requests to me sooner, right?  That’s my […]

My-YE-cover final

It seems like Kanye West is back on point.  His latest album, Ye, is certainly an engaging album.  The album’s cover has become almost instantly iconic, even inspiring a Ye Meme Generator.  But really, do you think that The Ghost would cheapen himself to do a Ye themed playlist with a Ye inspired cover photo? […]

GOBL Radio: May 2018 Highlights

GOBL Highlights May 2018

I know, your life has likely felt empty and meaningless without a new episode of Ghost of Blind Lemon Radio this week on Deep Ellum Radio.  Not to fear, the radio show will return next week.  In the meantime, here’s a special playlist for you.  Since some of you may not be able to tune […]

Perhaps it’s just as well that Deep Ellum Radio is on hiatus this week.  It’s giving The Ghost a nice opportunity to sit down and put pen to paper regarding these tracks.  Okay, so it’s more like finger strokes to keyboard, but the principle is the same.  This allows you, the readers, to access the […]

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 […]

Monday Mixteen 20180212

The Ghost has been rather busy with Directing the Programming at Deep Ellum Radio.  As a result, the blog has been a bit neglected.  So today, to “celebrate” Valentine’s Day, I am bringing back the Monday Mixteen.  I put the word celebrate in quotes because anyone who knows me realizes that I don’t celebrate that […]
