I had forgotten that one...which is odd, because it was common practice at
'ILN for the jocks who were about to graduate and had to try and find a REAL
radio job...

BTW, I've twice heard CD-R malfunctions on JRT, where a lot of programs
are pre-recorded (well, pre-burnt, to be accurate)...so the digital age
hasn't changed things! Recall hearing a guy on ISU's "real" station (FM),
which was all-classical then...he put on a nice, long, classical cut...
disappeared for what he thought would be a nice break...and the record
stuck about 30 seconds into the cut (and stayed stuck for quite a while...)
