Since 1968 there’s been a low power AM radio station broadcasting from a tiny studio next to the Newton dump on Rumford Ave. The tiny WNTN building always reminded me of our version of the radio station in the movie Brother Where Art Thou.
Over its many years the station, at one time or another, has had nearly every type of radio format you ever heard of: “adult contemporary”, “talk radio”, “oldies”. In the 1970’s it was even the first Boston station to jump aboard the Disco train.
The station was sold this year and moved its studio to Needham this past March. The sale did not include the studio and land its on. The iconic little studio building will soon be demolished
