You are right, sir.  The station had some previous attempts at simply
parking the mobile studio, a huge (really) GMC mobile home that fits a
family of eight pumping air monitor and interviewing passersby.  This yr.
they parked the mobile unit at JFK plaza/city hall (easily dwarfing any
other facilities with calls) to bcast that stage and also set up a second
RPU/team at Boarding House park.  

I recall many a remote from that studio.  They have these four directional
loudspeakers on the roof that, when set to about 4/10 on the amp, aimed at
the same direction, can actually cause damage to neighborhood buildings ...
