Monday Mixteen: 3/1/21

Monday Mixteen 20210301

It’s been a little over a year since America learned of its first COVID death.  The following year has been hard for pretty much everyone on both a personal and financial note.  Some industries, however, have found their livelihoods more impacted by the pandemic than others.  Those in the music and artistic communities have been […]

Ten for Attention 20210112

It took a bit of digging, but I found ten cool brand new songs released in 2021 worthy of your attention. The weather may be cool, but not as cool as these songs. I begin the list with a joyful tune that Ellen Once Again dropped on New Year’s Day. After all the chaos we […]

Monday Mixteen 20200824

While the anniversary of the blog happened at the beginning of the month, tomorrow is the actual birthday for the man behind The Ghost.  The usual celebrations involving live music and large crowds will obviously not occur this year.  That means I have to be the one to create the party, so to speak.  This […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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, […]
