Unless they run Talk stations. Folks calling from cell phones -- read that
as: "calling from their cars" -- tend to get bumped to the top of the queue
by producers on WTKK.

A couple of years ago, when the Inside Track was in its mid-morning run, a
caller from a car was on the phone with Gayle & Laura talking about
when he uttered an expletive and we heard a crashing sound and the call was
cut off. Now I don't know whether there really was an accident or if the
caller was playing a prank, but G & L seemed to be just a little bit nervous
sounding for the rest of that shift.
