Re: “How has GPB's takeover of WRAS' daytime programming affected you?

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.

Re: “Headland and Delowe

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

Re: “Amen Dunes keeps roving

No offense but this is really poorly written. That first paragraph is a grammatical headache.

Re: “Avondale Estates approves music venue, but bans dance floors

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.

Re: “Avondale Estates approves music venue, but bans dance floors

2 questions.

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?

Re: “Avondale Estates approves music venue, but bans dance floors

Great small venue. With that should be a Shakespeare tavern. I'll take a really good club, though, so make it good, ya'll!

Re: “Avondale Estates approves music venue, but bans dance floors

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.
