Punching Error in AIR Guwahati Also!!!!

Hi!!! Guys!!!
Was this a Punching Error in AIR Guwahati??????????????????
I was listening to AIR Guwahati's Commerical Extension Service Programme On Assamese Music "Suwarani" from 0225UTC onwards on 100.8MHz (FM Mode) here in my home town Abhayapuri (178km-200km away from Guwahati ) loud & clear.There was a short two minutes or so breaks for FM News Headlines around 0230UTC.Just after this around 0233UTC , the normal programme announcement was given for next song of Assamese flim "Sakuntala,Sankar Aru Joshep Ali", there was News in Hindi perhaps which was on the air via AIR-Guwahati's Medium Wave relay i.e. 729kHz & 4940kHz Shortwave relay from AIR Delhi. After a spell of silence then came song in Hindi perhaps relayed Vividh Bharati AIR Mumbai for a few minutes. I switched off the Rx then to respond the nature call for a few minutes. And while returning back around 0241UTC or so, I found Assamese songs from the flim "Sakuntala,Sankar Aru Joshep Ali" was on the air.Perhaps, the problem by that time was sorted out. Perhaps the technical guy punched right piece of cable to the feed in plug after initial mistake.And I think this is the "Punching Error" as often we see in posts in DX India Yahoo Groups....
If it is so, then GK has fortunate enough to witness this error.
For your info, this AIR Guwahati FM Station on 100.8 MHz takes a short 20 minutes break from AIR Mumbai Vividh Bharati Relay from 0225 to 0245UTC for this AIR Guwahati's Commerical Extension Service Programme On Assamese Music "Suwarani".And then rejoins Vividh Bharati Relay from 0245 to upto 0345UTC.And again AIR Guwahati's Commerical Extension Service Programme takes over from 0345UTC onwards upto perhaps 0500 ot 0530UTC or towards end of the morning transmission. There are two break for FM News Headlines in Assamese at 0225 & 0445UTC onwards.

73 & 55
