I remember WHYN Springfield running a looped rainout announcement starting
at 12:55 one March Sunday afternoon. A spring training game had been
canceled and the announcement told the affiliates that it would not be
rescheduled. It ended with a phone number for station personnel to call for
more information. This tape ran right through the top of the hour, finally
ending around 1:05, when regular bird-feed weekend talk programming resumed.
