I know that before I started to work at Big Frog 104, I was curious as to what the radio station looked like. You have an idea of what you think it looks like, but not a definite vision. It's like when you hear somebody on the radio--you have a vision in your mind of what that person looks like, but nothing definite. So, today, I'll give you a quick tour of the radio station. The photos are mainly of the equipment we use at the station. I would like to share with you those snaps. This week's theme--The Radio Station.

Microphone

 
 
Here's where it all happens--in front of the microphone. You can see in the background is another important tool at the radio station, the board. Below, there's a more detailed photo. (Note: To see a larger size of the picture on the left, just click on it.)

The Board

 
 
These are the main controls for us DJs. It controls the volume of music, the microphone and the telephones.

Retro Microphone

 
 
In a display case near the main desk of the building that houses our stations--Big Frog 104, WIBX, Lite 98.7 and Oldiez 96.1--there's this gem. It's one of the station's original microphones.

This is a look in the Big Frog 104 studio itself. This sign hangs behind where the DJs talk.

Peabody


 
 

In that display case with the retro microphone pictured above is this very prestigious broadcasting award--it's a Peabody Award. Our sister station WIBX-AM was the winner of this award in 1944 for "Cross-Rhoads," Outstanding Public Service by a Local Station.
