Default KDAN-AM Newport Minnesota?

Recently saw the film Purple Haze, released in 1982 and filmed in Minneapol
is and St. Paul (lots of great shots). One of the characters is a late nigh
t dj, the savage, and there's an exterior shot of what looks like a large h
ouse with a giant painted KDAN covering the entire side of the building. Th
e movie doesn't circulate, unfortunately, due to licensing issues with all
the sixties classics used on the soundtrack.

There are also studio shots, though no idea if those would have been done a
t KDAN. From what the director, David Burton Morris, said at the screening,
everything was done with no $ and asking favors, so they wouldn't have bui
lt a studio set and may well have shot at KDAN.

Default KDAN-AM Newport Minnesota?

Found a clip from PURPLE HAZE on YouTube and YES that's the KDAN studio & t
ransmitter building (a converted house with an apartment in the basement) l
ocated off Military Road in Newport, MN. It was a 500 watt AM Daytimer with
a 3 tower directional antenna array, and was licensed to South Saint Paul,
MN. I worked there in the early 70's and recognize the building and interi
or. The studio is completely different from when I was there, but the doors
& windows are in the same spots and you can see some of the old acoustic t
iles on the wall.
