Hacking into radio

Date: May 18, 2006

A popular morning program on WBAB radio was "hijacked" Wednesday, station officials said, by someone who broke in on its broadcast -- apparently by using an illegal transmitter -- and played an offensive song that repeated a racial epithet several times.

Station managers, already immersed in controversy over the Roger and JP morning show's airing last week of a "Wetback Steakhouse" fake commercial, said they were angered by the two-minute takeover and contacted the Federal Communications Commission to investigate.

"I'd like to find out who did it," program director John Olsen said. "I'm not happy about it."
