Abandoned Places – Lost Radio (Summer 09)

Back in September 09, I finally got to scope out a site I’d spotted previously but couldn’t find the time of opportunity to explore. In the US, it’s a rarity to find an abandoned community radio station, but there it was. Stations like these dotted the countryside before corporate networks gobbled them up. These stations were very compact and frequently had the offices, broadcast booth, transmitter and tower all on site. Stations like this all but faded away from the US landscape by the early 90’s.
