Sam Massell, a 1944 graduate of Druid Hills High School, served as Atlanta’s 53rd mayor from 1970 to 1974, during which his administration established the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) and Woodruff Park. Now, he manages the Buckhead Coalition, a nonprofit civic organization.

He recently released a biography, “Play it Again Sam,” written by Charles McNair, which recounts Massell’s childhood spent on Oakdale Road, where he was “proprietor of ‘Bud’s Place’ Coca-Cola stand at the corner of North Decatur Road at the age of nine.”

Music for this podcast was provided by the The Halem Albright Band. The sponsor for this week’s episode is Charter Bank. To learn more about them, visit Charterbank.net.
