That's right up there at the very top of my "missed radio opportunities" 
regret list - that, and passing up the chance to ride the elevator up one

Apparently, the inside of the WPAQ building is something of a radio museum, 
with much of the original equipment from the station's 1948 sign-on still 
present and operating. (Shades of WCAP :-)
