Anyone remember WOAK radio... One Mint Julep (Clovers), Work with Me Annie (Midnighters)? Or Elvis before he was really famous ... That's All Right Mama, Blue Moon of Kentucky? Buckhead Bowling Alley - with real people who reset the pins? Hickory Pit Barbeque on Roswell Rd.? Rusty's on Peachtree? The Stauffer System (a "reducing" salon on Peachtree near Peachtree Creek) with vibrating belts that were supposed to make you thinner?

OLDATLANTANATIVE, Yes, I remember all of that and more. By the way, did you mean WAOK (not WOAK)?? My dad was an owner and DJ during those early R&B days. How about Piano Red (You Got the Right String, Baby, But the Wrong Yoyo) The Buckhead Theater? The Buckhead Zesto? Jim Salle's Record Shop? Tom Thumb Raceway (slot cars) in the Peachtree Battle Shopping Center?

KennyLane, I've just posted the only pic of Mooney's I've ever been able to find on a Facebook page. This sould take you there I hope. I think you'll like the site anyway.

The YellowJacket drivein on the south side, slot cars at westgate shopping center and the Westgate movie - first theater I ever saw with two movies playing at the same time. Going downtown on a Saturday and dressing up in suits and dresses. Eating at the Magnolia Room. The Lowe's Grand and the Rialto...when it was a movie theater. The candy and nuts store in that funny triangle at Five Points. The big Coke Sign over Five Points, Lenox Square when it was new....for that matter ALL the malls in Atlanta when they were new. Remember when you'd drive all the way across town to visit a new mall? Gene & Gabe's in Buckhead, the Slimelight and the Circus. Baker Motor Company with the new Ferraris. Hub Ford, Smith Johnson Pontiac, Boomershine downtown. Gary McKee, Yetta Levett and Red Neckerson.

Oh hell, give me a few minutes and I'll probably come up with more. That's all I have off the top of my head.

That pic is worth a million dollars.

LOL--I don't think I went --was taken as a child--more than once or twice--but that is exactly the way I remember Mooney's Lake. Behind Broadview Plaza--all very hazy.

There weren't many places to swim at the time--50's--Piedmont Park, Grant Park--it was quite an event to swim.

We bought our 1957 Pontiac at Goldman Taber Pontiac. Sometime later it became Taber Pontiac.

One of the earlier Hickory Houses was on the hill on Northside Drive going north toward the railroad underpass. It changed owners frequently after the 80's.
