This is the "WAKY Building" as it looks in 2005. According to Gary Clark (who shot this photo
and the one below), the nail salon only occupies a small part of the front of the building.

The 790 frequency in Louisville is now being occupied by Clear Channel sports station WKRD.
Here's a July 2005 photo of the 790 AM control room with Program Director Jim Fenn.

On July 7, 2006 Mason Lee Dixon returned to "the scene of the crime" -- the former
WAKY studio location. You can see photographer Mike Griffin's reflection in the window.

Len King provides the caption for this one: "Gary Burbank, Len King & Marty Bass stand aimlessly where the WAKY control room once was on the River City Mall. On the back wall is the original sound-proof window that separated the control and news rooms. Today, the shop is a nail salon where people are fed tiny twigs of scotch-worm while their nails are brushed, polished and hammered."

Bob writes: "
Gary and I have, of course, overseen Stonehenge since its inception."
