  • Toy Stories

    Toy Stories

    30/12/2013 Duration: 15min

    The Christmas season over, we thought it'd be fitting to take a retrospective look at toys so that we may have perspective about personal enjoyment and community development as we enter the New Year. It's important to hear Toy Stories as narratives not glamorizing collective gluttony, but introspectively about their importance in the cultural food chain. But, we promise, we won't get too serious. Toys are fun after all, and for us they are the topic of this month's show, the passion of our guests. We hear from Chris Burn who is the editor of Time To Play magazine, director of Atlanta's Toys for Tots program and Chief Warren officer A.T Wilson and Maxine, a 10 year old!

  • Skateboard City

    Skateboard City

    28/10/2013 Duration: 15min

    Skateboarding was at one time relegated to misguided perception and city streets. Participants were counter-culture kids considered misfits constantly on the run from authority. Well, those misfits are grown up, and they're still running. However, now they're running businesses, charitable foundations and the town. This month we recognize and explore the personal expression and cultural development that skateboarding so righteously offers both fans and communities.

  • The Curb Market

    The Curb Market

    26/08/2013 Duration: 26min

    In 1917, an enormous fire ravaged 75 blocks of Atlanta, leaving 1 mile of destruction in its wake. To replant the seeds of commerce, the city of Atlanta created an open-air market (1918 – 1923) in what is now the Sweet Auburn Historic District. The gathering became so popular, a permanent structure was demanded and the Womens Club of Atlanta raised money to help make it happen. The Municipal Market of Atlanta, as its officially titled, opened its doors in 1924, selling produce, meats, and products to consumers of the day. The market was in many ways egalitarian, meant for people of all classes and color, but not everyone was allowed inside. The African American shoppers had to buy their goods from carts on the curb, prompting a nickname that still stands nearly 90 years later; today we affectionately call it “The Curb Market."
