guess my other message was never sent or got lost in cyber land,,,anyways,,,,if anyone knows of whatever happened to any of the items from the original WKOB,, please e-mail me,,it is my understanding that there are still photos and equipment out there somewhere,,,,and by the way WKOB stood for,,,W>will K> keep O>on B>broadcasting,,thus WKOB,,,not really cleaver,,,but I guess not bad for high school students,,,,and as far as who put the station together,lets just say that it was a well known disc jockey from the then known as WRCQ,,,also just wanted to know if anyone knows if the WPOP towers in Newington are still in use?? they are not lit,,

just a couple of other notes I forgot about in my other message,, the former WBIS now the Spanish station WPRX currently located on Ellis st in New Britain still maintains the old transmitter bldg of WBIS on Sherbrooke Street in Bristol, it still says WBIS on signs on that building which is being taken over by plants,,,also it is my understanding from a friend that the old broadcast bldg of WPOP on Cedar Street in Newington still contains everything in tact as it was left when the station made one of its many moves,,maybe that stuff should be in a broadcast museum,,,also the old WNTY bldg nowa Spanish station on Old Turnpike Road in Southington still operates with all of its original equipment in tact and in use daily,,,,and 1 last note,, its true WDRC was Connecticuts first broadcast station,,,,and is currently broadcasting out of its original facility

Hello ,cant wait for the Hartford radio history book to come out,, never realized just how much John Ramsey has been and is currently involved in in Connecticut radio,, anyways ,, just to clarify a correction,,the call sign WDRC stood for Doolittle Radio Company, the station has been in the Buckley family for several years, Charlie Parker was MR. WDRC for some time, having served many positions, his son Steve also worked there at 1 time,,now as for the strange WKOB it is my understanding that it is currently a on line station sending out programing to over 27 casinos and has facilities in Bristol and Berlin, Ct... ( it was in my basement at 1 time in New Britain on Wooster Street) that was after Joe Senk had it,,,,I think its nice to see the call letters out there once again,, hope whoever has it be it a pirate or whatever, that they have a long run,, anyone know anything more about todays WKOB?

I did 2-6 pm at WNLC am 1510 from Oct. '73 - May '74. Jim Reigert did mornings, Jim Buchanin middays, and Ric Everette 7-11. John Fleming was the OM, and Paul Morey, GM. I had always wondered what happened to the building and towers at Waterford Industrial Park..Thanks to the great shots taken in 2010, now I know! I retired from radio in 1994..what a long strange trip it's been.- "Chuck Morgan (William R. Cunningham)
