Delia Champion – Flying Biscuit and Chicken Sausage

Delia grew up above a real live tap room, and thus began her love with the sights, sounds, and smells of community and food. We explore her journey from New Jersey to Atlanta (with a short stop in Florida) and learn how she has become one of our local treasures. (I know super humble Delia may not be comfortable with that compliment, but too bad Delia, you are).

Listen and here about:

  • Confronting fears to make dreams happen.
  • Her desire to feed folks who didn’t keep “standard hours”.
  • Those first crazy days of Flying Biscuit and how it grew.
  • Why she sold Flying Biscuit.
  • How Delia’s Chicken Sausage came to be.
  • We introduce a new segment “Atlanta Faves”.
  • Much more.

Interview Recorded: Matt’s House – West End. Sept, 26. 2017

  • How he came here.
  • Why Angel loves Atlanta.
  • Why he can’t stop getting involved.
  • The Atlanta Railroad
  • Some deep in the weeds BeltLine stuff.

Steve Craig – 99X Before, During, & After

If you were around Atlanta in the 90s, 99X was playing in the background almost everywhere you went. Before the internet, radio was your social media. It’s where you found out where to go, what to do, and where all of your music and musical interests lived. Steve Craig in the afternoon on 99X was one of the voices that defined that period for Atlanta.

Listen in as Matt and Steve discuss:

  • Steve’s first radio gigs in Southern California.
  • The amazing (and brief) rocket ship ride that was alternative rock radio.
  • Fred Schneider impressions.
  • Moving away to NYC and back to Atlanta.
  • His current gig on 97.1 The River.
  • Much More.

Interview Recorded: Conference Room at Alkaloid. Sept 5, 2017.

Clark Ashton – Harvesting Souls From Chaos

I can firmly say I have never met anyone like Clark Ashton. Clark is an artist in every sense of the word. Here is one paragraph from his website, in which he explains a little bit about his work.

He maintains a studio and sculpture garden at his Mechanical Riverfront Kingdom on Druid Hill in Decatur, GA containing The Commuter Gallery, where he serves as Mass Minister of The Sweet Holy Church of the Everlovin’ eelMAN, manufactures psychic unity, and exhibits the monumental works Boundary, Faith in Industry, The Infrastructure of an Uncertain Future, The Bateman 5000, The Battle of Druid Hill, & The Ascension Machine among hundreds of other works.

Not much else to say, but let’s dive in. Away we go.

Interview Recorded: August 1, 2017. Dock of Alkaloid on The EastSide BeltLine.
