Dreaded open mike on WMEX

Did anyone catch the 11:35am newsbreak this morning on the Majorie Claprood
Show?  Apparently her mike was left open during the newscast and commercial
break because while Ed Cocoran was doing the news you could hear Majorie in
the background talking to her guest and then to her producer. During the
weather she came back closer to the mike and asked her producer "did you
have a date over the weekend?"  He answered over the talkback loud & clear,
"I spent the night on the roof with the mayor's press secretary".  Majorie
roared with laughter and suddenly the mike went dead.  So much for the old
radio rule "Always treat a michrophone as being live".
