WHHL History
From Steve Schiffman: "...The original owners of WHHL, were Hyman and Harriet Lake, developers of Sky Lake (He was a lawyer as well as developer who lived in Palomar/College Park).  I believe they sold WHHL either when they still had the CP or at the time it was built. 
Thanks to "Uncle Russie" (heard from 2PM until 5PM Saturdays on WLBE-AM 790) for more history of WHHL. He wrote; "The station originally broadcast in the lobby of the Archway Inn on Orange Blossom Trail, south of Sand Lake road. During it's last year as an oldies station it moved to Hoffner Avenue in Pinecastle.
