    How about when a traffic reporter forgot the stage name he was supposed to be using on Musicradio WABC, causing Dan Ingram to crack up?

    I know Steve and consider him to be a friend. He told me that it was due to a template error that nobody thought to change.

    HOW DOES THIS HAPPEN?
    It is simple slip of the tongue

    Years ago, I heard a host on a major station read the words "Announcer Tag" on the air, before the live ad tag copy he was supposed to read.

    And newspapers over the years have amused and baffled readers with "44-pt hed goes here", "dummy text here," "xxxx xxxxx xxxxx" and similar filler copy and layout instructions making it into print. A newspaper I once worked for had an item one could drag onto the page from a library that would be inserted column and tell the reader that the story it was attached to was a "Film Review" or "Concert Review" or "Appreciation" of some deceased author. This graphical doodad had the word "Armpit" in it as filler text, because the doodad would be placed at the top of the second column of a 2 column story. Well, that WAS the filler text until a review of some classical music performance got into the paper labeled as an armpit. The library item's text was quickly changed to XxXxXxX.
