I have been listening to Album 88 for about thirty years, since I was a teenager tuning in for anything new and unusual. It shaped the way I think of music, and I've never stopped listening. Even when I lived in Nashville, I would tune in to Album 88 whenever I came home to visit friends and family.
In the past couple of years, Atlanta radio has become a blasted plane of uniformity, but at least we still had Album 88. Now the only decent radio station left has been subsumed into an ego-driven clone of WABE. My afternoon drive home has been Album 88 for years, but now I'm discovering the value of silence while I drive. I don't mind a little introspection, but after a long day of work, I really need something to listen to, and Album 88 was perfect. And now it's gone.
As the daughter of a former GSU administrator, I feel betrayed.
Maybe its one of the Dungeons you have another name for.But Theres a whole segment of history left out of what took place in JD's basement off CampCreek and Welcome All. It was full 24hrs with EVERYONE in the DF,including Ludicrist,you name them . JD passed in 2014 from a Glioblastoma. JD and T-Bo were best buddies growing up and their parents still live a block away off Cascade. Big Bois first house he bought off of Campbelton in sandtown, JD;s sister found for him. JDs still has the Outkast Gold record plaque on the wall of his home they gave him . JD had a contract with CeLo (the contract copy is a keepsake it shows what Ce Lo would be named the whole deal)things unraveled with JDs studio , when he became ill and recording equipment was stolen from his house. JD agreed to settle between attorneys to let Ce Lo out of his contract to move on. T-Bo spoke at JD's homegoing in 2009. Can't erase history , theres photos, docs. Authenticity, not just part.. but the whole story. JD always maintained a good relationship with Big Boi and his family years after he was out of the music business. He always had a love of dogs and worked with Big Bois brother breeding making a good side line there. JD's family would appreciate the respect of not trying to erase his contributions to the DF. Keep it ON the REEL
No offense but this is really poorly written. That first paragraph is a grammatical headache.

You're visiting from which planet?
This will be a great addition to Avondale Estates.
A nice non-smoking venue where granola eating conservatives can listen to "folk & americana" and show off their finds from the vintage shop.
Awesome video and excellent song!
Someone can really make a living as a roadie for Sister Hazel?
Does Kevin Bacon know about this permit, because I think he will have something to say about this no dancing in a small town business?
Excellent life coaching !
It is a great news that I like very much.
Thanks a lot for sharing this article.
I call dibs..
Great small venue. With that exterior...it should be a Shakespeare tavern. I'll take a really good club, though, so make it good, ya'll!
In the very early 80's I had some friends that lived in the theater for a while. I remember it being a really great place. Glad to see that someone is finally going to utilize it again.
This video is amazing!!! And I love the song. I want to hear more from the duo.
Not into the vampire stuff... but great lyrics and great music.
I enjoyed every minute of this.
Very interesting, we post musicians on our site who are trying to gain exposure as well www.realmusicicons.com
