A Cool Look Inside an Abandoned Radio Studio in Detroit
Take a cool look inside an abandoned radio studio in Detroit, Michigan.
Detroit Unseen has done it again. Take a look at the inside of an abandoned radio building in Detroit below. The architecture is very cool and even some of the old equipment is still on site.
Most people only see or hear the finished product from a radio or television building. It is not too often that the general public gets a good look behind the cameras or microphones. Even though this particular radio building is abandoned, it doesn't mean that your imagination can't take over while looking at the photos.
Even though I have worked in the radio industry for 20 years in Michigan, I can say that I have never been in this particular studio. My entire career has been spent in Flint and the only studios I know are the ones that I work in. I hate to say it, but I'm sure that back when this was in operation, it was probably a way cooler building than what I currently work in.
The radio studios that I am used to working in are normally in back hallways with few windows. Think walk-in closet with a microphone and mixer board. However, I have had the pleasure of visiting the studio of the Free Beer and Hot Wings Show and I was blown away by theirs.
From what I understand from the comments and talking to a few co-workers, the building below is the old WWJ-AM building on Eight Mile. No matter what station it was, I can just picture it in operation in my head and I'm sure it was a beautiful place to work.
