I recall a radio broadcast school on the corner of Puritan and Greenlawn in the mid 1950's. Does anyone remember this or it's name?

Was it a trade school or a Detroit Public School? Fitzgerald Elementary is on the corner of Puritan & Greenlawn.

Detroit Mercy (at the time U of D) had a broadcast school on Puritan near Livernois.

The building was on the south east corner. I remember two Detroit announcers names that taught there. Art Lang, and Pierre Pollen. It was across from Fitzgerald, and I'm sure it was a trade school, and not affiliated with UofD.

Specs Howard opened in 1970, I believe. Detroit/Mercy does have a broadcasting program in their College of Liberal Arts and Education. At one point in the late '60's they had a carrier current AM station, but it was housed on campus.
