Mood Whiplash: Radio
  • This American Life: One episode ("Fall Guy", aired June 28, 2009) jumps from a comedian talking about his beatdown-filled freshman year of high school as part of his routine, to a sobering story about Lynndie England and the Abu-Ghraib prison scandal.
  • The Mercury Theatre of the Air production of "The War of the Worlds", as part of the conceit that a Martian invasion was happening, switched back and forth between news remotes about a meteorite striking New Jersey and a jaunty dance-music program starring "Ramon Raquello and His Orchestra".
  • This was the reason for Casey Kasem's famous Cluster F-Bomb outtake. He had been given a dedication for a deceased dog to read after an upbeat, cheerful Pointer Sisters song, and had gotten tired of doing somber tributes to deceased people and animals after light-hearted songs, finding the jarring transitions insensitive to the memory of the departed.
