obg logo

  When WDRC moved to downtown Hartford in December, 1930 it utilized a transmitting site on Blue Hills Avenue in Bloomfield. The original building was replaced by a brick structure 40 feet away in October, 1934. Originally numbered 783, the new building was numbered 785. The Town renumbered the street in September, 1937 so the address was changed again to 869.
