How the Super Bowl blackout sounded on radio

Sunday night Dial Global radio shared the above picture of Super Bowl play by play man Kevin Harlan being relegated to calling the game by landline phone thanks to the Super Bowl blackout.  We now have audio of Harlan's call from when the lights went down in the Crescent City.  While the CBS booth went silent, the Dial Global booth was working with both Harlan and Esiason on the phone.  In fact, according to Dial Global, sideline reporters Mark Malone and James Lofton called in to the broadcast and used their cell phones.  Here's the surreal audio from one of the craziest events in recent sports history.
