I don’t know about you but I really enjoy learning about the history of some of these old buildings. When I lived in Toledo and they were doing some renovation at my old place on Bancroft Street, I learned that the radio station building use to be a brothel. I have to tell you there were many a nights where i would hear party and celebration sounds in the hallway outside the soundproof room.
Before you want to commit me to the funny farm, I was not alone. Others i worked with heard the same thing and it only happened only at night.
