Hum...at right before midnight Eastern time the radios locked-up on a "Only on Air America" promo commercial (kinda wish they knew enough about public radio to stop advertising AA shows on XMPR, but nevermind that gripe now) and went silent. Other channels, though, are fine, and the "emergency loop" never activated; just dead air.

Got a little audio around 12:23am and then quiet again; Calvin Trillin resumed again at 12:26am, PAD data changing to "XM Radio." At the break around 12:30am, PAD data finally caught up with the audio (except for the forgotten data in the "You're listening to..." interstitials).

Can't wait to see what this 25-minute silence looks like in the radio's recording...
