The newly restored Coca-Cola mural on the side of the Padgett building in Quincy started WFSU Public Media’s Mike Plummer wondering about the history behind the artwork. This story is where new Coke and old Coke meet at Madison Street and Jefferson Street in the small southern town.
Mike Plummer is a content producer and editor for television at WFSU Public Media. He spent 25 years in commercial television as an art director, commercial director, promotion manager, station manager and creative services director before coming to WFSU in 2008. Mike likes to find the “unusual” or “out of the ordinary” stories in our Local Routes. He says the best part of his job is getting to know people he would otherwise probably not get a chance to meet. Mike is widowed, has two terriers named Truman and Dexter, and is constantly at war with the vines growing in his backyard.
