I don't think they're talking about the Law School tower (if it's
really on the Law School building--the tall building and the tower on
top of it that are readily visible as you head east on the Mass Pike
after you go though the Allston-Brighton tolls). AFAIK, that tower
still stands and it is where I believe WBUR's aux antenna is located.
Rather, I think the tower that came down was the one atop the low
(three stories or so) building on Comm Ave that used to house the WBUR
studios and SPRC. WBUR's antenna was on that tower before it moved to
the tower atop the tall building. There is or was a large parking lot
between the low building and Comm Ave. I always thought that the
address of that building was 630 Comm Ave, but someone else gave a
different address for it on this list a few days ago.
