Normally during this week, many Dallasites would be making the trek down to Austin for SXSW week.  Yes, the festival is still happening, but only as an online event.  That means Austin likely has no packed hotels and motels, no ridiculous amount of traffic and foot traffic, and no venues with people packed in like […]

The Monday Mixteen: 8/17/20

Anyone can make a playlist.  Even any hack can make a Monday Mixteen playlist, as that jerk from Coffeebreak Cafe proved last week.  It takes real talent, however, to make The Monday Mixteen.  Only The Ghost has The Skills to pay The Bills, so to speak.  I’ve brought back a concept I used a few […]

By some miracle, we have survived the first half of 2020. Heaven only knows what will come our way in the second half of this crazy story of 2020. Will it be Revenge of the Murder Hornets, a tornado with nuclear funnels, or perhaps a good old-fashioned asteroid to wipe out humanity? Whatever 2020 throws […]

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 […]

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 […]

Politics are an area that I’ve always been reluctant to discuss on the blog.  After all, this is a music blog, not a political one.  With the level of vitriol being spread in our country right now, however, I feel that I cannot continue to stay silent.  The level of racism and hate being spouted […]

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 […]

Most of my Monday Mixteen playlists have some sort of theme.  The sixteen tracks selected have a loose musical connection to them.  All of the songs are within what I would refer to as “rootsy” music.  What exactly does that mean?  To me, it means anywhere along the musical spectrum that contains Americana, country, blues, […]

You may be aware that this weekend is the Deep Ellum Arts Festival, and that Deep Ellum Radio has its own Artist’s Court Stage this year. You might have even heard that The Ghost is curating his own day’s worth of music on said stage. So yes, this is gonna be a good year for […]
