We're probably splittin' hairs here but... The Hahns owned 1570 and applied
for 640. After a long process and a battle with a competing applicant in
East Greenbush NY,, they recieved the grant for 640 but they could not (at
least at that point in time) continue to operate 1570 along
with 640. when 640 went on, the 1570 was shut off and the license was turned
in. When the switch was made ,they changed formats, but continued to operate
out of the same studios on Union St in Westfield for several years.

You're Both Right! It was sort of a continuation in some ways and not in


COL was and still is, Westfield.

I think Curt used to enjoy the occassional times when he'd say "Hello to our
Albany listeners" after cranking up to 50 kw in the morning.
