Rose of San Antonio … Tacoland

With Bell Solloa at TacolandDeep within my heart lies a melody,
A song of old San Antone,
Where in dreams I live with a memory,
Beneath the stars all alone.

Shea’s in Texas!  He’s interviewing folks for the second piece in our NPR summer series.  We’re profiling Tacoland!  Tacoland was an amazing music club in San Antonio that closed it’s doors in 2005.  For decades, Tacoland served as the hub of a vibrant punk/et al. music scene and community of patrons.  It closed prematurely in 2005 when owner/icon Ramiro “Ram” Ayala was murdered when a robbery of the club went terribly wrong.  Ram and Tacoland have left strong memories for many people, and we’re humbled to be interviewing them.

Bell Solloa [pictured above] has already created a Tacoland page at  Get a closer look at Tacoland and Ram.  And if you have memories of your own about Tacoland, please share them with us online.  And leave us a message with your memories at 888-910-2555.
