Here's a fun little fact for you: Our radio studios are located in Downtown Evansville. We are actually in the Fifth Third Bank building. Thankfully, we have access to the parking garage, but other people sometimes use it for recreation, so I wondered if it was legal or not.

Fun Police

Okay, I will admit that if I think laws are being broken, I will shut down the fun immediately. Like when I see kids on scooters, roller blades, or skateboards in areas that they probably shouldn't be. Seriously, when I spotted a couple of teens doing their skateboarding tricks in a parking garage, I wanted to issue them a ticket on the spot!.

Great Spots to Skate In Evansville

Now, before I spout some laws, I do want you you to know that there are nice spots for wheeled fun. Plus, there are some exciting projects in the works, too.

See How Downtown Evansville Has Changed Over the Years

I find looking back on the way things used to be fascinating. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad I'm living through the current time period. The conveniences of answering any question we have in seconds, or ordering practically anything we want or need and having it delivered to our doorstep is pretty sweet. But, there is something fun about seeing how things around us have evolved. As an Evansville native, and spending quite a bit of my time in downtown Evansville (that's where the station is located), I've always appreciated the older architecture of the buildings around the area. So, I dug into the Willard Library Archives to see how a few of those areas look now compared to then. Some have changed a little, others quite a bit, and a few don't even exist any more. Take a look.
