LONDON, May 12 (UPI) -- A BBC official blamed a "glitch" for a Sunday morning radio news program being interrupted by yodeling.

Many listeners were confused when "Broadcasting House," a panel review of Sunday newspapers, was interrupted for about 10 seconds with the song "Jesus Put a Yodel in my Soul," The Sunday Telegraph reported.

Listener Sally Wintle ‏tweeted: "Was there some random yodeling during Broadcasting House paper review... or did I dream it?"

Nic Price tweeted: "Broadcasting House on @BBCRadio4 just got yodel-bombed."

"Broadcasting House" presenter Paddy O'Connell later apologized for the incident, blaming the yodeling on a "glitch."

"It was a technical error. We apologized to viewers and rectified the matter straight away," a BBC representative said.
