That big brick building across from El Cortez where Fremont Country Club and Backstage Bar & Billiards are expected to open in October will also be home to a new FM radio station, according to the Review-Journal.
Developer Carlos “Big Daddy” Adley plans to use the station on the building’s second floor to promote bands that will play in the two bars below. Live appearances at the radio station will be seen and heard by a street-side audience. We can’t help but hope for a U2-like “they’re shutting us down” scenario.
The Federal Communications Commission still needs to approve the plans.
