Hi Tom: The only recent mention of $40k condos and radio was the Hotel
Kimball Springfield, former home of WBZA. Yup, condos in that price range

The Bradford was at 275 Tremont Street and is now a Marriott Courtyard..
they are not selling any one-bedroom apartments as someone stated on Boston
Radio Interest (for $40,00). LOL.
The WCOP "model" studios in Copley Square were in the New England Mutual
at 485 Boylston Street for at least part of the time that COWLES owned the
and when PLOUGH had it.
WNAC was at 21 Brookline Avenue, but extended into the hotel. Last time I
looked, the area that used to be the front door still had Yankee Network
etched into the stone. (Tom Heathwood)

The Bradford Hotel was built in 1927 as the Elks Hotel, if my memory
serves. I have two postcards from its Bradford days-- one that is
just the hotel, and another which has the same view of the building
but a caption that says "home of WBZ". WBZ began its Boston life in
1924 at the long since defunct Hotel Brunswick, moved briefly to the
Statler in 1927, and then moved to the Bradford, where it remained
throughout the 1930s and into the 40s till the Soldiers Field Road
move. During the 70s and 80s, the Bradford hosted many seminars,
including EST trainings. These days, it's a Marriott.
