Unearthed: A bit of radio history
One of the joys of living in a city with so many layers of history is that you never know what might unexpectedly resurface the next time some building is torn down or a subway station is rehabbed. This discovery is hardly historic by a mile, considering recent finds at this subway station, the Columbus Circle stop, but this old ad caught our eye. It's a partial remnant of an ad for Hot 97 from at least a decade ago, by the looks of the logo, perhaps longer. It simply touts the station's very red logo, with a tag, "soooo hot!" and the station call letters on the bottom right. A nifty little find, and one that won't last for long.
