An Alabama radio station recently fell victim to a rather audacious heist when a group of sticky-fingered ne'er-do-wells stole their 200-foot tower and, in turn, forced them off the air. The bizarre caper reportedly came to light last Friday when Brett Elmore, the general manager of WJLX, was informed by landscapers that the critical piece of broadcasting equipment had vanished. "I have been in the radio business, around it all my life and then in it professionally for 26 years," he mused, "and I can say I have never heard of anything like this. I can say I've seen it all now."
