And WRUL did not open up a New York studio till February of 1942, operating 
one at 630 5th Avenue, according to the Christian Science Monitor. The new 
studio would enable WRUL to do live interviews from either city, whenever. 
newsmakers were available.

The 70 Brookline Avenue timeline is a bit more confusing for me-- the 
Monitor and the Boston City Directory kept saying that WRUL was located at 
133 Commonweath Ave-- in fact, when the government finally decided to give 
Walter S. Lemmon back his radio station, the re-dedication ceremony was 
held at 133 Comm Ave (see Christian Science Monitor, 28 February 1947, p4). 
SO, does anybody have a reliable date for the 70 Brookline Ave address?
