Monday Mixteen: 4/5/21

Mon Mixteen 20210405

Keepin’ it real.  I haven’t felt inspired to write lately.  I’ve had ideas after ideas for articles, playlist, etc. yet have lacked the motivation to post anything.  The Monday Mixteen I’m sharing below was supposed to be shared last week.  It was a review of sixteen of my favorite tracks released in the first quarter […]

Unless if you’ve been living under a rock. you have probably heard about the two COVID related mandates issued by Governor Abbott.  These mandates, which go into effect Wednesday, deal with business capacity, and the other with masks in public. The first part allows all business to operate at 100% capacity.  I will admit that […]

The Top 101 Songs of 2020: #101-81

Foundry 2020

When people look back on the year 2020, most of what will come to mind is the pandemic, as well as financial and emotional loss, not to mention the psychological effects of social distancing.  Yes, this has been a rough year, and our music community was most definitely hit hard by the events of 2020.  […]

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 […]

Yes, 2020 has been a challenging year for all of us.  It has been a year that has taken a toll on the human race because of COVID-19.  That virus that hit the health (both physical and mental) and the economy hard.  Indeed, COVID-19 has made 2020 one of the most difficult years of my […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
