Terribly belated blog entry for a great visit to Atlanta, GA. Spent the morning with folks at Turner, then met a rowdy bunch of music enthusiasts at the Mellow Mushroom.

Very animated conversation over pizza and beer. Some local radio promoters, musicians, technologists, bloggers, web designers… then headed out for some live music…


Wound up at Eddie’s Attic. Very cool, old club, for a solo performance by Darden Smith. Eddie’s attic is a long standing club that has been home to some great local musicians. Home base for the likes of John Mayer, Billy Pilgrim, Shawn Mullins, among many others.
As with so many of the southern towns I’ve been, there’s clearly a sense of musical history.
Unfortunately, I had to cut the evening short for a last minute interview. Sorry guys. I’m going to have to come back through and do it right. But thanks for keeping me company.
Got up early on Saturday to get over to Athens, GA. Blog coming shortly…

    Hi! A Co-worker of mine just turned me on to this site today. It seems bound for glory. Well-designed, easy to use, great idea. Anyway, I am very interested in this especially because I help run an independent record label in Atlanta called Alaska Records. Check us out or we'll check you out next time you come to town. It's time the music industry change its shape to survive in a changing world with changing media...perhaps this site is at the forefront of that movement.

    While Atlanta is a huge music mecca....its hard to find radio stations playing more mature sounds in the local area. Such as smooth grooves, R&B, Jazz....its not all just hip hop. Thank goodness for Pandora radio.

    Beware the urge to ask for Atlanta's opinion on music. I was born in Atlanta and lived there for over 40 years. Whenever a good radio station emerged, they would state, "We want to be your radio station....tell us what you want to hear." Within months, another great music potential would die. WQXI, Z-93, then they even asked for a new name- what did they get?....B98.5. It amazes me, it is certainly strange, but it seems the ones that make the loudest noise in preferences are not majority. Smooth jazz is lacking in Atlanta, too. One station in Roswell.... I love it when I'm close enough to their signal. I took a small north GA town job to escape ratrace Atlanta.

    i was just recently introduced to pandora by a friend we were sitting at his house listening to same 4 songs on evry station saying how much better it would be if someone would play new and old music without playing them out and making you hate a good song alsio if you want to really experience southern music you have to go further south to the birth place of CAMOFLAUGE SAVANNAH GA experience the river street night life and you'll understand the southern genre also a tip you should have a launching stationn for new artist to submit their music i know plenty of new rappers better than whos out now but no platform to perform. anyway keep up the good work

    Tim, I sure am enjoying your Pandora! What a great idea. Don't forget Macon, Georgia next time you are down south...e-mail me and I will take you around to some of our unique Musical sights. All the best as you go public! Hope you make a jillion dollars and keep the music flowing. Sincerely, Franklin Gheiry
