About flamdaddy

Click on the 'website' button above to contribute to our Kickstarter campaign, which ends on July 28. I grew up on Chicago's North Shore, studied percussion with Slingerland's master teacher, Jake Jerger, pursued a degree in jazz performance at the Wisconsin Conservatory of Music, and played drums professionally in the Midwest for a decade. I've since earned a B.A. in creative writing from the University of Wisconsin -- Madison, as well as a master's degree in computer-assisted language learning. For several decades now I've worked for software development companies as a technical writer and trainer. My obsession with music and drumming, however, is unabated. I am especially interested in R&B recordings of the 50s and the rapidly evolving world music scene. I maintain a personal collection of about 3000 albums and CDs, but my iPod is now the center of my music universe. My wife and I live just south of the San Francisco Peaks in Flagstaff, Arizona where we enjoy digital imaging, classic English novels, science fiction films, hiking, and vegetarian cooking, as well as a brown dog the size of a Humvee and an arm full of rescue cats. Following a rock climbing accident, I've had to abandon my trapdrum set, but I can see clearly now conga drums and tablas in my future.

Hello, I’m Bill Kilpatrick, host of Ain’t That a Groove. As you probably know, Ain’t That a Groove is a non-profit music webstream for drummers and other connoisseurs of high art and the fundamental wisdom of the big beat. During ATG's seven-year tenure on live365, I created more than 150 hours of original content, all of it actively hosted by a DJ, and featuring great songs, new and old, near and far, ‘what got’ remarkable drum and percussion tracks of every possible pedigree. And all of it funded and produced by yours truly without any assistance or remuneration of any kind from anyone anywhere. 


Because all of the shows currently available on ATG's webstream are archived editions of the show, I’d like to begin developing new shows for ATG on a full-time basis. But this time I’m seeking Kickstarter funding to offset the costs of producing the show. Your generous support will enable me to once again deliver new, unknown, or under appreciated drum tracks to listeners on a regular basis, along with vital information about the recording artists who make the music magic happen.  Likewise, your support will enable me to support truly independent radio by playing what I damned well please on behalf of listeners who love great songs ‘what got’ great rhythm tracks ‘whenever’ and wherever they can be found —just as I've done throughout the show's history. 


--Make it funky, and let the drummer kick
