WKSC used to have this happen all the time just under 20 years ago. Almost always during the mixshows. NexGen would meltdown and a backup would fire up automatically after about 30 seconds of dead air. I think they still have a similar setup in place. Having that was a good thing for a station that didn’t always have someone in the studio after hours.
One time CBS Radio’s entire cluster here (before Entercom) went to dead air one overnight. I tried to call them on the phone to see what was up. No answer anywhere. I called their New York office to see if they knew who to call. They answered, but the woman who answered was one of the rudest people I ever spoke to on the phone. Snapped at me for “Calling New York”
