WBZ-AM "clock" deliberately running slowly?

Indeed.  A few weeks back while driving through the NYC area, we had 
1010 WINS on for traffic. And wouldn't you know it but the exact same 
music bed was played under the traffic reporter.

I've also heard the "Give us 22 minutes and we'll give you the world" 
on WBZ once or twice.  Not as much of a staple as it is on WINS, but 
they're very definitely going in that direction.
