The 2CC Emergency Tape

January 26th, 2008 at 05:42am

Nine days ago I was pleased to discover that 2CC’s emergency tape had been updated, even though I was unable at that stage to ascertain whether or not the tape was a short loop like the previous emergency tape.

Courtesy of a network news failure at 5:30 this morning I am very pleased to say that the tape is not a short loop, it has an approximately three minute ad break to start with (enough to handle the occasional missing ad break pulse), followed by music. The first song is Neil Diamond’s “Sweet Caroline”.

I didn’t get to hear any more of the tape, but I don’t really need to. All I need to do is say a very big thank you to the people responsible for the new tape at 2CC…hopefully the tape will never be needed again, but if for some reason 2UE disappear from the face of the earth in the middle of the night, at least 2CC’s listeners will have something to keep them entertained…unlike the old six minute ad break loop, which I will hopefully never have to mention ever again.
