WLHA Studios – Part 9

Today’s stop on the grand tour of WLHA studios finds us in New York City, home of WLHA East, which oddly enough is the main master control center for WLHA.  Almost all programming is fed through this over-engineered facility just a few blocks from the original Radio City in Rockefeller Center.  Click any picture to […]

WLHA Studios – Part 8

Welcome to WLHA North, our newest studio.  In fact it is so new that it’s not even online yet.   We’re waiting for high speed fiber optic internet to be installed, which could happen any day now. or might not happen until next year.  Either way it’s going to be great for Casey the K and […]

WLHA Studios – Part 7

Today we visit WLHA’s hottest studio.  That’s because it is located in the greater Phoenix area, home to Andy Arns since the early 80’s.   Andy of course is a veteran party/club DJ in addition to being an accomplished radio broadcaster so his studio setup reflects that.

WLHA Studios – Part 6

Today’s WLHA Studio Tour takes us to another Madison location.  It’s not Elm Drive B, it’s Studio BB, aka Bolger’s Basement, where veteran broadcaster Tom Bolger crafts “artisanal radio” using original ingredients passed down through the generations – by which we mean two turntables and a microphone.   Unlike all the other WLHA studios Tom’s setup […]

WLHA Studios – Part 5

In our previous episodes we’ve seen some pretty elaborate studios, or at least studios crammed full of old radio broadcasting gear.  Peter Bolger takes a different approach to his studio design.  He’s a firm believer in minimalism.  His Beaverton, Oregon studio doubles as the dining room table when he is not broadcasting.   His rig consists […]

WLHA Studios – Part 4

Welcome to the Wisconsin studio from which emanates the Stan Lewis Show on Thursday evenings on the Big 64,   We have some very cool classic gear on display here, if not necessarily in use.  Let’s start with the fabulous McMartin B502 stereo console from the early to mid-70s.  This was a good sounding and attractive […]

WLHA Studios – Part 3

Today we’re visiting the Wisconsin studio where Nivek commits radio, both on his own program on Sundays and Wednesdays and during the Music and Malarkey Morning Show with Casey and Tom Weeden.  Like many of us on the WLHA staff, Nivek has collected an impressive array of stray equipment over the years.  Notice the Teac […]

WLHA Studios – Part 2

While WLHA has many studios hither and yon it also has two master control centers – WLHA East  in New York and WLHA West in Madison overseen by Casey the K.  It is certainly the most elaborate of all our facilities crammed full of just a fraction of the equipment Mr. The K has accumulated […]

WLHA Studios – Part 1

We’ll start […]
