History of WYRL
From Bill Golden
"This FM/AM combo was situated at 2221 Front St., adjacent to a marina with a nice
view from the GM's office of the Melbourne Causeway over to the beach side. As of 2011, the building was still standing but apparently no longer in use.  The single broadcast tower for WMMB was still there, extending into the river. I can't remember where the FM tower was, perhaps we used that tower for both signals."
