Nah, I think they were just sloppy.  WMEX jocks ran their own boards and 
they were always tight.  My guess is that it was tolerated because it gave 
the station a "folksy" image.

I could see having a separate announcer & board op when spots were played 
off ETs or 5" reels,  but once carts became commonplace there was no need.
