Re: "former" college stations

Interesting. Not only because, now that I look again, you're 100% right,
but because the old WFMU web site used to have a tribute to Armstrong and,
at the end, mentioned that they were on that tower today. Now, of course,
the page has disappeared...

Was 'FMU ever on the Alpine tower?
