In many cases, these calls via cell phones are not a good 
advertisement for the quality of cell phones.  Many times 
the call is either dropped totally, or is so substandard
(it sounds like WBZ-AM during the day) that the host
askes the caller to find a better cell or use a landline phone;
digital service is SUPPOSED to keep this from happening, a man wearing a black trenchcoat claims.
