An English DJ, who works for the BBC, had to do the breakfast show from her mobile phone when she got stuck in a traffic  jam caused by bad weather. During the four-hour show, a producer played the songs from the studio.  The DJ, Anna Foster, had to improvise interviews with unusual guests such as police officers and ordinary people who were stuck in the same traffic jam.  The show was a great success and crowds of people came when word got out that a live radio show was taking place.  The battery of her phone ran out 8 minutes after the end of the show.

Study the words

got stuck– was blocked
traffic jam– a queue of cars
crowds– large groups of people
word got out– the news spread
taking place– happening
ran out– used up all of its power
