Pickin on Peachtree traces Atlantas emergence in the 1920s as a major force in country recording and radio broadcasting, a position of dominance it enjoyed for some forty years. From the Old Time Fiddlers Conventions and barn dances through the rise of station WSB and other key radio outlets, Wayne W.

He also profiles a vast array of performers, radio personalities, and recording moguls who transformed the Peachtree city into the nerve center of early country music.
