DescriptionNot long ago Todd Gill and Dustin Bartholomew were part-time musicians working in advertising. In late 2007 they began blogging about the music scene around Fayetteville Arkansas. Gill saw it as little more than a hobby but bands he found were natural self-promoters pushing friends and family to read their coverage. Interviewing musicians reviewing shows and running a calendar of events led to a small dedicated readership. They called their site the Fayetteville Flyer. [Profile updated April 17 2012]
