a nice history
This show does a nice job of exploring parts of atlanta with some knowledgable people. They often take a creative approach with whom they interview.
The show would improve with some live sound, not just studio interviews, and if it was more than just once a month. That aside it does a nice job. Still waiting on their show about local breweries….
The Arts of Atlanta
Sidewalk Radio is a great monthly show that takes listeners through the history and diversity of the arts in Atlanta. Every show focuses on a different section of Atlanta and features guests who describe their own connection with the part of the city. The show focuses on art, design, culture, and preservation of the great history of arts. The variety of speakers and their personal experiences with the city make the show unique and relocatable to people.
The places that are chosen for the show are fascinating and the background on these places is very informative. Atlanta is presented in a completely unique way through the show, and I'm ready to go out and explore some of the places mentioned.
The Past, Present and Future of Atlanta
There are very few shows that bring the elements art, architecture, design, development and history together like Sidewalk Radio. Kansas' knowledge and passion for the city come through in his interviews. The guests are experts in their field and provide unique insights to various aspects of Atlanta.
Whether you've lived in Atlanta your whole life or are new to the city, you will learn things about the city that you never knew and will look at the landscape you pass everyday through a different lens.
For first time listeners, I recommend Atlanta Drinks, The Clermont Hotel and Peachtree Street to get you started. Trust me…you'll be hooked!
