Monday Mixteen 20200330

So, here’s my report on Day Eleventeen of self isolation, but at least I’m retaining my sanity, or at least that’s what the voices in my head are telling me.  All kidding aside, even though I’m adjusting to this new normal, I can’t say that I don’t miss the luxuries of going to work, going […]

Monday Mixteen 20200323

What kind of playlist do we need at a time like this?  Should The Ghost rely on tried and true favorites, or venture into the territory of new releases and undiscovered artists?  Should the message in these songs be one of hope that we need, or the despair so many of us feel?  There is […]

Bandcamp Recommendations From The Gho...

Most days, when you make a purchase on Bandcamp, the organization takes approximately a 10% cut on all sales.  Today, until midnight Pacific Time (10 Central Time), the organization is waiving all its fees to help the music community.  So if there’s a CD, LP, or T-shirt you’ve been wanting to buy, this would be […]

Open Letter From A Ghost

Deep Ellum Hearst

Dear Readers, For months, I was planning an announcement. Life factors were creating a burnout of sorts, which caused a dramatic reduction in posts, radio shows, and GOBL events. Even my plans for the 5th Annual Ghosty Awards did not come to fruition. I felt it was time retire as The Ghost. I was working […]

Today is Labor Day, which to many signifies the end of Summer. With Fall right around the corner, that can only mean one thing. No, I’m not not talking about Pumpkin Spice latte, or Pumpkin Spice body wash, or Pumpkin Spice Whiskey. I’m talking about Ghosty Awards. This year will mark the 5th Annual Ghosty […]

This has been a fabulous weekend for The Ghost. I got to celebrate my birthday weekend with family and friends, and of course, I got to see some great live music courtesy of Pleasant Grove. Me thinks The Ghost has been partied out, however, so there will be no commentary from me today. Instead, I […]

I’m not gonna wax as poetic as usual. Short and sweet. Keep it about the music. Texicana: new band featuring GOBL faves Chris J Norwood and MD Wulf, among others. Cool cover of a tune written by Tom Petty. Curious to see what their originals sound like. Bet they’ll play originals this Thursday for their […]

Monday Mixteen 20190819

Last week, I announced on Facebook that I would be taking a break from recording episodes of Ghost of Blind Lemon Radio.  As the station’s Program Director, I want to help in developing some new shows.  I also want to spend more time contributing to the blog. New episodes of the radio show will return […]

Monday Mixteen: 8/5/19

Monday Mixteen 20190805

The theme for today’s Monday Mixteen is pretty straight forward: all sixteen tracks, as of the time of the publication of this playlist, have less than 1,000 streams.  Not only that, none of these artists have a song with over 1,000 streams. This time, however, I have a measurable goal for the playlist.  By next […]

10 for Your Attention This Tuesday: 7...

Fresh Ghosts - Tessa Morin

As I mention in yesterday’s Monday Mixteen, this week marks the twelfth anniversary of the start of the Ghost of Blind Lemon blog. This week’s episode of Ghost of Blind Lemon Radio will largely be a look back at some of my favorite tracks over those years. While there will be a few newer tracks […]
