I read an article in the Springfield newspaper a couple of years ago about
how the old Westinghouse plant (on Page Blvd, I believe? I may be spelling
it wrong, but that's how it sounds...) had been abandoned ages ago and the
city could not find a use for it, nor did anybody seem to want to rent it.
I have seen a number of potential radio historical sites which today are
just boarded up buildings with not so much as a marker to let people know
what used to be there.
