e_r, welcome back. I hope your dad is all right.
I think this KRKD transmitter was powered down many decades ago, but nice the towers are still there.
"KEHE, the official broadcasting station of The Evening Herald and Express. KEHE officially opens this modernistic new studio at 141 North Vermont Avenue, with a lavish three-day dedicatory program. The building is devoted exclusively to broadcasting activities, and is the most modern of its kind. It is air conditioned and indirectly lighted and contains the latest radio equipment. Its striking tower with neon lighting effects mark the new structure. Photo dated: April 27, 1937. "
"After land was donated by Charles Chapman in 1911, a small bungalow style church was built at this corner of Wilshire Boulevard and Normandie Avenue. In 1927 the original church was replaced by this Northern Italian Romanesque style structure with a 200-foot tower, designed by Robert H. Orr. On May 19, 1940, First Christian Church of Los Angeles merged with Wilshire Boulevard Christian Church to become Wilshire Christian Church, which is of the Disciples of Christ denomination. Located at 634 S. Normandie Avenue, the church is Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument #209. "
"A look at the radio tower of KFI on top of the building where broadcasting took place. The station was then owned by Earl C. Anthony, Inc. Anthony was also a Packard car dealer."
I wonder where this was located? What is the building with the domes, down the street? (Not the Santa Fe train station, is it?)
