I've always liked this little extreme 'A' Frame building on Airport Boulevard just east of the airport entrance.

It appears that it switched real estate businesses from Sunbelt Properties to Lindy, Inc. sometime late last year or early this year as Sunbelt is still listed in the February 2013 phonebook.

I know the building predated Sunbelt by a good deal, but don't know what it was originally built for. The only other 'A' frame in town I can think of was a Mr. Swiss on Beltline but the look isn't really that similar.

  1. Wasn't there a radio station that used to operate out of this building? Was it WZLD-FM?

  2. @Homer, you are correct. It was also at one time home to a used car dealership, mobile home dealer and some kind of electronic company (home security maybe?)

  3. That funky RedWing shoes building on Knox Abbott has always been put in the same mental category as this building, in my somewhat demented mind.

  4. I thought this was the old WSCQ station at one time. As far as A-Frame buildings go, there is one on Elmwood, two spaces down from Capt. Telegram away from the old Eat More Tees building. For some reason I think it is part of a plant nursery.

  5. It was country radio station WCAY with morning DJ Friendly Ben Dekle. The owner, Olin Tyce, lived in an apartment in the upstairs floor. He had been a young star network announcer in the 1940s and 50s and was one of the announcers for The Shadow: "Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? The Shadow knows!" He married one of the top models of the time but they separated. Occasionally she would still visit him. He was a very talented, eccentric man unfortunately hampered by alcohol.

  6. In the 1980's I advertised with WZLD, also had a friend that was a DJ with WZLD. This is not the building WZLD was in. They were in the building next door. A flat top place with cedar type shingles.

  7. Mark, you are right. I just looked at Google streetview. This building is the one just before the building that was built for WCAY Radio and then housed other radio stations. The building I was thinking of is next door and closer to the airport entrance.

  8. Initially I thought this was the WZLD building, and in fact erroneously stated that when I did the WZLD closing. As folks have said, the actual WZLD building is next door.

  9. I knew WZLD was close to there, but that was the late 70's - early 80's, the memory is the first thing to go...haha!!! Wasn't the a-frame on Elmwood part of Modern Exterminating?

  10. WZLD is now known as Wild 106.3, a mainstream urban radio station in Hattiesburg, Mississippi...

  11. WZLD and, I think WYYS which is now licensed somewhere in Illinois. WYYS here had a logo "It's hard to say 'no' to a station called Yes" "Yes 97" a station with Leo Windham in the mornings.

    WZLD "#1 hitkicker" had Woody Windham from 6 to 10 pm and Harrold "Cat Daddy" Miller in the morning. He has become a big time owner, all over SC.

    I used to pay my rent there when it was Sunbelt. I rented a house owned by them for five years. Lindy is now the company of two former property managers at Sunbelt. The bought the old offices as well as some ofthe properties in the area.
