February 20, 2013 at 4:18 AM (PT)
The TUESDAY (2/19) edition of NPR's "ALL THINGS CONSIDERED" featured a story on the Cold War-era bomb shelter studio beneath GREATER MEDIA Talk WBT-A-F/CHARLOTTE.
The story, from crosstown noncommercial WFAE, featured WBT CE JERRY DOWD offering a tour of the room, which has largely remained intact since its 1963 construction (including a broken clock and turntables ready to play a church program recorded in 1955). It also noted recent efforts by FEMA and the government to create above-ground Primary Entry Point Stations for emergency broadcast use.
