“What’s the difference between a donut and a wrap?”

I overheard that question being asked once and then heard the reply being delivered in an incredulous tone, “Well, a donut is usually sweet and a wrap is more likely to be savoury”. The person who asked the question now looked very confused.

The reason was because this happened in a radio station newsroom. The person asking was a junior reporter and the person being asked was a senior broadcast journalist.

You see in radio, audio that fits between a pre-recorded top and tail is called a “donut” and a self contained piece is called a “wrap”.

Craic on!
