Al Quaglieri in Albany NY has noted that Russian national station Radio Mayak (meaning lighthouse I believe) has mixed a bit of the old into the new. One of the jingles for the station mixes the old interval signal familiar to most foreign listeners (for most of the last century) into their new set. Not sure it works, but then I guess the older listeners must have complained that if it wasn't broken, please don't fix it. Perhaps when they finally get used to the new theme, they'll drop the old one. Al's posted a copy of the tune here for a few weeks. I also see that Russian radio didn't manage to book the website www.mayak.ru in time.
