That was then
Dresser also sent us two photos of WPTR 1540 Albany, NY's, "Golden Studios." AM 1540 first signed on the air in 1948 with 10kW of power. In 1953, the station gained network affiliation with ABC and increased to 50kW. After a fire in 1964 damaged the inside of the studio building, a new 10,000-square-foot broadcast facility was constructed at the transmitter site, and programming originated from what became known as the Golden Studios until 2005 when the building was demolished. Programming now originates from new digital facilities inside the transmitter building. WPTR calls are now on 96.7 FM in Albany and 1540 is still on the air but with different calls.
