Christopher Byrd of Broadway Fillmore Alive posted this picture on Facebook and we do not think he would mind us sharing it.
He writes: "Final resting place for WBEN mobile unit ... behind Central Terminal."
What a find!
Generally Chris ends his reports on the East Side by writing: "Alive!"
In this case, he'll have to write: "Dead!"
All day we have been pawing at the ground, wanting to get at Twitter so we can see what appears -- for the moment, at least -- to be the top-trending Twitter topic -- Buffalo Horse Names.
"City of Good Neighers," is one. It is the brainchild of WGR's Greg Bauch.
"From Cellino's Barns." HAHAHAA.
"Yous Guys." That is Matt Carlucci's.
"Everything Parmed." That comes from Trending Buffalo.
Richard Doran suggests "JoAnn Fillyetta." Ha, ha! He used to work for the Buffalo Philharmonic.
Everyone, get a horse in this race. Put your horse name on Twitter with the hashtag #BuffaloHorseNames.
Let's keep this hash tag on top.
We will not be unseated!

"Well!!! Looks like we're all going to be
inside for a while! What say we get the whole damned bunch together for a
Party!!!! I'll play the records, Wheelie and the boys'll rock around
the clock, we'll all party like it's 1999! Who's in?"
That is Shane, the great deejay and Buffalo Broadcasting Hall of Fame inductee, broadcasting on Facebook from Virginia, where he now lives. He included that classic photo. Wheelie is Big Wheelie from Big Wheelie and the Hubcaps. That is Wheelie on the right, and Shane with his arm around him.
Dear Shane, Brother Shane. It is fun to have him on Facebook. It is like having him on the air!
And as for that party ...
Buzz is in!
