  1. That’s a lot of moola for Mickey’s station. But, there may be some value for the land under those six sticks…if only they could figure out a way to di-plex with that complicated night patten! And please don’t bring up being at the wrong end of the dial of a dead band, or the fact there is zero cash flow. Yup, sounds like a heck of a deal. NOT!!
