Actually, 106.5FM licensed to Albany, WDKC was owned by Kops-Monahan
(along with WTRY) signed on in the late 1960's - later changed calls
briefly to WTRY-FM (and then to WHSH, then to WPYX)

You're thinking of the Channel 35 (WTRI-TV) tower site on Bald
Mountain in Brunswick, NY outside of Troy (called Bald Hill by Scott).
 We'd ride our bikes up the mountain and spend the day up there in my
teen years.  the pieces of the Channel 35 towers were still up there
(late 1960's).
