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.
