“The interconnectivity of downtown…all these different neighborhoods come together.
It’s just a great creative cultural hub.
That’s why The Creek, why we decided to come down here…to centralize it and be back to the roots of Macon. It’s important to be independent and local and give people downtown access. Whether you live down here, or you just come here to work and play, our doors are always open. Come up; check out the radio station. Listen to music.
We wanted to do this right in the heart of Macon.
I basically live here [at The Creek].
I lived in Los Angeles…of course, I was out there for entertainment purposes and everything. There are so many people, millions and millions of people and hustle and bustle. But now being in Macon, the fact that you can turn a corner sometimes and run into…say, Gregg Allman. I mean, it’s crazy.
This opportunity right here…I never in a million years thought I was going to be on the radio. Just getting that random phone call [from the creators]. That wasn’t going to happen anywhere else.
‘Hey, we’re gonna start this thing, and we want you to be a part of it. Are you in?’ ‘Sure.’ I can’t see that in any other city. The community. The interconnectivity. The ground level.
I was born in Atlanta. My family is from here. I moved here when I was young. I went all the way through high school here.
Everybody says, ‘If you drink the water [in Macon] you’re gonna come back.’ And, I think there’s a hint of truth to that. I don’t see myself leaving.”
