Nice catch!  I've never caught numbers interrupting a Cuban music broadcast before, not sure how uncommon this is, perhaps some of the more expert numbers folks might comment.  Seems unusual to me!

You probably heard Radio Habana Cuba. Numbers transmissions during their broadcasts have been heard before. It's long been thought that the Cuban numbers stations are using Radio Habana transmitters. It's guessed that when you hear something like this, someone screwed up - hit the wrong switch etc.
