Andy's Angles: The Doors

For background, please refer back to my April 5 blog entry.

The gold framed doors at the right were the doors that led to the WARM studios in Avoca.  They were the ones with a big WARM logo on top, and all the other stations in the chain painted beneath.  Remember, it was a lot easier back then.  When I started, the legal limit was seven AM stations and seven FM stations.  There are companies now that own hundreds of stations.

The big window looked in to the WARM control room/air studio.  There are two thick panes of glass with an air space in between.  When I was there, we put some plastic flowers in the middle of the sandwich to cover up all the dirt and bugs that somehow got in there.

I looked inside.  It's an office now, with a big desk and a computer.  A construction company has leased the space.

While WARM moved out long ago, note that the circular speaker above is still there.  Could you imagine the voices that came out of that thing over the years?
