Engineer Jerry Olson led the expedition through cables, false walls, and equipment that wasn't crucial to initial broadcasting at SPR's Fire Station.
Like any good renters, the staff cleared out everything that wasn't part of the rooms when we moved in.The photos were taken before a final once-over by The Cleaning Authority. Thanks also to MenGoats Hauling, The Salvation Army, and Earthworks Recycling for assistance.
