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.

A fun look at Atlanta in The 90s.

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.
