K/MEN in the 2000s

About 4-5 years ago, I took some pictures of the K/MEN towers and former K/MEN studios. This was right after the fire that gutted out the building.


I tried to ignore the grafitti on the building, but it's was there.

1290 studios are in an office complex on Iowa Avenue in Riverside. 1290 is Radio Disney. I belive they still share the building with 99.1 KGGI
590 KTIE, the phone book shows Inland Center Drive in San Bernardino.

The times I visited KMEN in the late 1960's were always after dark and I thought I remembered the studio building as a converted house? Was that correct? Was it replaced or extended?

I don't think it was a converted house, but it could have been. I also went out there in the late 60's and I seem to remember it being similar to it's ending state.
It was in the middle of a field with no other buildings around, and was a radio station before it became KMEN.

Maybe someone else out there has the anwswer.
