WKCI break-in on WDRC-FM

This morning at 10:43, WDRC-FM Hartford (102.9) was playing Andy
Williams' "Happy Holiday" when it was interrupted for about 10 seconds
by a promo, in progress, from KC-101 (WKCI Hamden, 101.3). The promo
then cut out and the Williams song resumed. 

I've heard of audio from one station getting onto another's frequency
before, but, except for the (I think) 1510 incident where some
maintenance worker accidentally switched to WAAF (again, I think), I
always though these incidents always happened when the wrong feed went
to the transmitter from a group of stations under common ownership using
the same facilities. But DRC and KCI have separate ownership and
transmitter sites! How did this happen?
