How long before this happens?

You are aware, aren't you? that WAZN 1470 carries MOYL 'round the clock on
weekends (although the station recently started selling some of that time)
and 6:00PM to 6:00AM (yes, overnight) Monday thru Friday. A whole bunch of
Arthur Liu's other AMs around the country have similar arrangements. The
feed began a couple of months ago. There were serious audio problems for a
while but those were eventually resolved. Within the past couple of weeks,
however, I've noticed that MOYL is again coming to us over a background of
ac-line related hum. I'm not sure, but MOYL may not be the only feed on WAZN
that is plagued by hum.
