KDKA Bricks For Sale
Your purchase includes 1 original brick plus a signed letter of authenticity.
These bricks come from the building that housed KDKA Radio, when it went "On the Air" Nov.2nd, 1920. It was the FIRST commercial radio station, which means that ALL broadcasting, both radio and TV and even the Satellite folks, trace their common heritage to this historic structure.
Building "K" was in the Westinghouse East Pittsburgh Works, and was demolished in 2007. Contractors figured the job for three months: In reality, it took close to NINE months to finish the project. The demolition company said "They sure don't build 'em like that anymore!"
These are the LAST bricks remaining..the others now being used for patios and home construction, with no one realizing their historic significance.
The bricks measure 8 inches long, by 3 1/2" wide, by 2 1/2" tall. They are mostly red, with some pink, dark orange and some white, left over from the concrete that was chipped away. The building dates from 1894, meaning that the bricks are now a ripe 114 years old!
The bricks will be shipped USPS Priority mail, so figure 2-day delivery. Trust me, it's LESS EXPENSIVE that way, than anything else!
And to cover the legal bases: This sale is in no way related to KDKA Radio or CBS Radio Inc. The use of the call letters on the certificate is with permission of CBS Radio, Inc. They have no involvement in the sale of these bricks.
