E.L. Cord was connected with another Radio Station other than KFAC. Cord evidently acquired Station KFVD in '29 and moved it into the Ambassador- adjacent dealership at 3443 Wilshire. (Or alternatively, 645 S. Mariposa Street) The station has an interesting past as chronicled here:"]"]

LAPL has an interesting undated photo of what appears to be the KFVD station. What caught my attention is the address given: 5900 Wilshire Blvd.

"Looking towards Auburn Carl Broadcasting, KFVD radio station, located in the Miracle Mile at 5900 Wilshire Boulevard"
Looking at the photo, it seems to be the same 3400 Wilshire Blvd. discussed earlier. "Cord" is listed as Carl.


This appears to be the same building with the given address of 645 Mariposa Street. Later used by Atlantic Richfield and now occupied by the Indonesian Consulate.
