Monday Mixteen: 7/15/19

Monday Mixteen 20190715

After last week’s Monday Mixteen without a central theme, The Ghost did not want two weeks in a row for there to be no coherent thread between the songs.  Alas, I was finding myself wanting a variety of styles within this week’s playlist.  I settled on something of a compromise: an indie music themed Monday […]

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 […]

So you all know that July 4th is Independence Day, which marks the anniversary of the U.S. declaring itself its own country.  I bet you didn’t know, however, that July 4th is National Country Music Day.  It seems appropriate, as I’m not sure there’s a musical style that’s as distinctively American is Country.  In honor […]

What a weekend this has been for The Ghost.  I want to give a huge thank you to Opening Bell Coffee for letting me host my Acoustiganza there, to all the talented musicians who played, and for everyone who came and supported the local musicians. This weekend promises to be a big one for shows […]

This Thursday marks the 2019 Summer Solstice for the Northern Hemisphere. The sun will shine longer on Thursday than any other day of the year. As the hours of sunlight grow, so does the Monday Mixteen. Today’s playlist clocks in at a hare over two hours, which will almost certainly make it the longest Monday […]

After a long, dry May, June is proving to be a more fruitful month for The Ghost.  Not only have I been posting playlists and planning Acoustiganzas, but last Wednesday was my first show on Deep Ellum Radio in more than a minute.  Fortunately, many local bands have continued to send their mp3’s to ghost@deepellumradio.com […]

The Ghost may not have said much in the past month, but that does not mean that there have been no new developments in GOBL land. In fact, I have a long overdue show announcement. I will be returning to Opening Bell Coffee on Saturday, June 22nd for another edition of Acoustiganza. There’s even a […]

What I’ve Missed in May

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 […]

The Ghostified Gathering

Music Festival

For a week or so, Festify was all the rage on social media. It was an app that created fictitious festival lineups based on one’s Spotify listening habits. One could create a lineup based on the most listened to artists over the course of a month, six months, or one’s entire time on Spotify. The […]

Monday Mixteen: 4/29/19

I had some ideas of what to cook up for today’s Monday Mixteen, but I just couldn’t figure out the right musical ingredients for the playlist.  On top of that, The Ghost just didn’t feel like serving up the dish of a carefully curated themed playlist.  So I did what people do when they’re lazy […]
