Haunted ‘50s and ‘60s country, lovelorn rock ‘n’ roll, borderlands guitar atmospherics, and drones and ambience from out where. Out Where is a pastiche of dust, neon and small-town streets, lost souls and lonely lovers, the lights at the outskirts and the empty horizons beyond.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/15/18 10:22pm Doug Schulkind:

Thursday evenings on the Drummer Stream are a dream come true for me. Flash Strap and Little Danny are the fellows behind two of my all-time favorite music sharing blogs.

For too long I didn't respond to the voice in the back of my head that said, these guys would be fantastic radio hosts. I could tell by the way they write so evangelically about the music they love. The desire to turn others on to the stuff that turns them on was just dripping all over everything they did with their blogs.

And that love, and smarts, and passion has just kept on oozing all over their stupendous broadcasts here on Thursday evenings on the Drummer Stream.

What a remarkable thing!

Show your appreciation and shower Little Danny with some contributions of all sizes!

re: the numero group. i have the honor of having spun records while rob s. was in the audience years ago at area bar. i was fill-in dj along with another fill-in dj; for the regulars who were not there that night. rob s. was there to while in town and was going to catch up with said regulars who were not there and i briefly said 'hi'. i am 100% confident he would not remember our interaction at all.

Ken, Rob & I had a great evening in Chicago a few years back which began spinning 45s at the Virgin Hotel & ended with me asleep on Rob's couch with no one else in the house while the Spanish karaoke bar across from the house raged still in the early hours. In between were tamales, malort shots & dive bars lol

I've always said it "Gill Mell" but I am definitely probably way wrong lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/15/18 11:04pm JtotheK:

there was a similar guy in the area but not tamales, cannoli. he passed away a few years back.
Avatar Thu. 3/15/18 11:06pm Kris Holmes:

there are actually two tamale guys in chicago, distinguishable by different height & different coloured coolers.....orang/red vs blue heh
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/15/18 11:06pm Andrew Waterloo:

I always said Gill Mell to. But, my french lessons are leaning me toward Jeel Mellai now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/15/18 11:07pm Doug Schulkind:

Gil Melle was born John Gilbert O'Malley. Gil is pronounced as the shortened version of Gilbert. Melle is pronounced Mel-LAY.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/15/18 11:07pm JtotheK:

your mention of records/chicago also brings to mind 'Mod Chicago' which my dearly departed pal Flavor Dave used to spin at, along with other area record buddies. though it was before i really knew them all that well, so... in hindsight while i was able to attend many many area soul nights, i probably should have made an effort to get to the chicago spins at least once in a while.
Avatar Thu. 3/15/18 11:08pm Kris Holmes:

Dave Monroe?
Avatar Thu. 3/15/18 11:09pm Kris Holmes:

ah, so my "Gill" was correct at least
