Speaking of Purchased Time.....

If you fancy yourself as the next "Big O" or "Mikey Adams".....

WWZN 1510 had an ad in the Boston Herald yesterday (1/31) basically saying
that if you ever wanted a Sports show of your own, you may purchase time on
"1510 the Zone"!

There was (maybe still is?) a storefront studio at WALE 990AM in 
downtown Providence, RI  The call letters came from when the station was 
licensed to New Bedford, MA originally, I think for "The Whaling 
City."   There was usually a crowd peering in the sidewalk window at 
night during the gay-lesbian show (....they brokered time at WALE, 
anyone could be on the air who purchased time).

Also, KPPC 1240AM in Pasadena CA  had a storefront studio on Colorado 
Boulevard.  The station had legendary calls since 1924, formed as a part 
time broadcaster of the Pasadena Presbyterian Church  only to air 
services all day Sundays and Wednesday nights. (It is now dark).  They 
also had an FM station at 106.7 which has been sold and is now a rock 
station in LA.
