Where does your radio signal come from? What do the studios of your favorite radio station look like?

A portion of Scott Fybush's Web site is devoted to radio tower and studio tours across the nation, including the Wasatch Front. Log on to www.fybush.com and click on "site of the week archives" to see the Utah portion.

Even if you're not into this behind-the-scenes kind of radio, the photographs are worth viewing.

When radio buffs visited the Wasatch Front area last summer, they found the AM towers for KOVO, KSRR, KOGN, KSVN, KANN, KLO and others.

As far as stations go, they seemed most impressed with KSOP, which they said is among the rarest of breeds these days — an independently owned station that is still thriving.

They even checked out local TV station studios as well as radio studios in Park City and Evanston, Wyo.

There's also a "Tower Site Calendar," which sells for $60.
