Which is why radio will always beat TV when it comes to cancellations.  You 
listen, and you hear when you're looking for in about 5 minutes.  Not like 
TV, where the crawl disappears just as it's getting to what you're looking 
for -- only to return from commercial and have it pass by the cancellation 
you wanted to see.  Or turning your head for a second -- only to have it pass 
by at the speed of light at that exact moment.
