Monday Mixteen: 2/22/21

Monday Mixteen 20210222

Last week was indeed a long week.  While The Ghost was without heat, neither power nor water services were disrupted.  That means that through space heaters, firewood, and cats, I made it through the week alright.  Plus, I had lots of spare time.  In fact, I took the opportunity to do some painting classes, where […]

“The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice.” – Martin Luther King, Jr. It is a quote that has been running through my mind a lot lately, and even more so since the events of January 6th.  Those words have served as an anchor to my mind, helping me not […]

For those who missed it, last night’s Top 20+20 Countdown of 2020 was quite the celebration, and that was especially true for those who were a part of the broadcast.

Yes, these are trying times, and some days it feels like you have less to give. Giving into despair would be easy.  Yet it’s in these cases it’s more critical than ever to continue to give everything your A-game. That’s what The Ghost is doing for this week’s Monday Mixteen.  The A-game is strong with […]

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 […]

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 […]

For those not aware of Crowd Control, it’s a unique and cool Open Mic concept from Brittany Griffiths (Wavelength) and Billy Law.  The last Thursday of each month, Crowd Control hosts an open mic, and each month there is a theme.  The performers must present original material, and the performers are encouraged to tie their […]
