From time to time I hear the countdown (woman's voice or computer generated female voice).
Maybe you know this: Almost every day on Schnitt Show during breaks, they play some music that keeps repeating itself over and over. Always the same "song". I say 'song', but it's not like bumper music. Just a couple of chords and then starts over. Sometimes will go on for 3 or 4 minutes. Same thing happens on Bill Cunington's show on Sunday night, once every 2 or 3 weeks. I've thought since the music is short and repetitive that is was used to lock on to a satellite.

They probably rent that channel on the satellite for the entire multi-hour show and just broadcast that when the show isn't on so they don't panic the engineers at the local stations with dead air. If someone at the local station doesn't switch to a commercial or news it will get on the air. Rush plays things like the Spatula City bit, but it almost never hits the air locally because that station's engineers are pretty on the ball.
