Oh James. PLEASE, share your elevated musical tastes with us. Can't wait to hear what's on your playlist.
they can afford to build a stadium (even though attendance at their games is quite low) but they give away their radio station which is highly regarded and an integral part of the Atlanta music scene. makes NO sense.
"They have had decades to make an impact on the community and adapt to changes"
Uh - WRAS hasn't made an impact? What cave do you live in? What changes?
"As a student of GSU, I would like to see this radio station work closer with the community and provide artistic, intellectual, and cultural material that is more representative of our diverse communities."
Such as? And how exactly is this deal supposed to accomplish any of the things you have mentioned when it is off the air for most of the day? From your comment it's obvious you know very little about the stations history and it's impact on music here in the ATL.
I'd like to save the exterior.
I live in a gorgeous brick building on boulevard and irwin that was 14 years ago just a shell. and yes, "Reed doesn't care about common people" - I have taken a hard look at it and I still think it;s worth saving.
the area is blighted, but prime for urban renewal. tearing it down and building cookie cutter crap is not going to help.
city hall east was embarrassing - holes in the walls, roaches - i felt like i had to take a shower every time i went there and now it's past of one of the most exciting reuse projects not just in the city, but in the country. http://www.travelandleisure.com/articles/w…
art moderne was not popular in this city, because it was small, conservative and not ready for "racy" modern, but the style is beautiful. Just ask Miami Beach, one of the sexiest architectural cities we've got.
I don;t think the building needs to be on the historically preserved, but it should be reused - the city need to make sure that happens.
woodser, what do you consider a significant building?
the building is historic for the reasons I mentioned already. it is architecturally significant and historically significant. I know the Atlanta Constitution is no NY Times or Washington Post but it has been around since 1868. Ralph McGill and Henry Grady (heard of them) were editors. You can hardly compare it to a walmart building.
As my design teacher Ms. Kate Kyle used to say to us when we would stare at her blankly when she asked us about important buildings around town. "Look around, open your eyes, crack open a book and learn about the city you live in."
