Interview - Atlanta Time Machine's Greg Germani

by Amber Rhea, October 22, 2006 - 12:13am

Show notes

In this Oct. 12 interview, Rusty and I talk with Greg Germani, proprietor of the Atlanta Time Machine web site. The Atlanta Time Machine tracks Atlanta's history through photographs, postcards, and old advertisements. We discuss the challenges of undertaking such a massive project, and the importance of preserving a city's anecdotal history.

Also included in this podcast are two awesome Atlanta-themed songs, graciously provided to us by Greg.

Great interview! It was fantastic to learn about the Atlanta Time Machine website, I had not heard of it before. I live in an old house in Decatur and I love finding resources about the history of the area. Hearing about Freddie Blassie's Atlanta residence made me think of DeForest Kelley's time in the Atlanta area. I've always wanted to track down his home, but have never had any luck trying to find an address for it.

Excellent show. I found The Atlanta Time Machine website at least a few years ago from an article in the AJC I think. Greg is right that it's nothing fancy, but it's really really facinating to see how spots all over the city have changed. I commend his efforts.

Oh, before I go... the longer length of this show was great. I don't think you could have gotten nearly as much info out in 15 as you did in 25. Good job.
