Listen to #MUSICMONDAY with Ghost of Blind Lemon! Back in 2007,  Chris Mueller chose the name Ghost of Blind Lemon as a tribute to Blind Lemon Jefferson, one of the earliest musicians of note to play in Deep Ellum. Since then, "The Ghost," has not only been blogging about Deep Ellum & the music scene, but has booked showcases at various Dallas venues such as Club Dada, Opening Bell Coffee, Free Man, & much more for over a decade. In addition to scoring gigs he also is the host of his own radio show on Deep Ellum Radio.

In addition to the blog, Chris works as a teacher at a Charter high school.  When he's not obsessing about local music, he likes to spend time with his cats, play Sudoku, & other "nerdy" things.

I started the playlist with Old 97’s & Deathray Davies because those were the two bands that were most instrumental in my introduction to the Dallas music world. From there, I chose a list of some of the acts who have made the greatest impression on me (musically &/or personally) over the past eleven years. The last two tracks are newer releases that I feel are the best representatives of what the metroplex has to offer right now musically.
