Latest trend in audio engineering at WDTW

At least twice during Thom Hartmann's show today, the a few seconds of the theme music, if you will, of the Workers' Independent News (WIN) broadcasts were clearly audible at various points of the broadcast. If I were paranoid I'd say the traffic managers at Clear Channel station WDTW were deliberately allowing these snippets of the feed to leak onto the airwaves, for the express purpose of rubbing in the fact that the bu$iness model of for-profit radio requires overwriting WIN content with inanities like CNN Radio "News," the V-roll "news" stories of Marketwatch.com and of course the mini-infomercials with their voice-roll mannerisms.

Most likely an inattentive producer missing his/her cue to launch the CNN newsfeed. This is nothing new for WDTW. As a former Detroit-area resident, this was a common occurence on the weekend broadcasts. Maybe the offendind producer got a promotion to weekdays.
