NOEL Sails East River for Radio

Noel on East 34th St., waiting on the Signal Hill, Brooklyn ferry.

You can't take the train to KLW's transmitter/studio site on Signal Hill, Brooklyn. We're situated on a man-made island in the widest part of the Gowanus Canal. The entire islet was purpose-built for radio broadcasting, records indicate, some-time between 1918 and 1920. Yes, there's an ancient, creaky little walking bridge connecting our little pile of landfill to greater Brooklyn. But Manhattan based NOEL at the Controls prefers a pleasant mini voyage on the ferry special from East 34th St.. A "special" because it stops at KILLERWATT's pier via special arrangement with the City. We'll explain in the next episode of The Blackout Tapes, KLW's chronicle of the Great Blackout of '77.

Tonight, NOEL at the CONTROLS broadcasts another Peabody Award winning program, because NOEL knows how to present great records. Enough said. Click the player above to hear it.
