Seems the FCC does take legal ID's seriously since they just gave Clear Channel a spanking. From Northpine:

Legal identification has long been mocked in online discussions as an unnecessary formality, but a recent action by the FCC suggests it's paying attention. The commission recently issued a Notice of Violation to Clear Channel's KBIG-FM/104.3 (Los Angeles) for allegedly failing to give a legal ID on Jan. 23. An agent monitored the station in response to a complaint and allegedly heard the station stating its frequency but not its call letters. The notice is not a fine, but Clear Channel must submit a written response explaining the situation and what it is doing to fix it. Broadcasters may wish to review the federal legal ID law. In short, a legal ID consists of the callsign immediately followed by community of license, with frequency or channel indicated in multi-station simulcasts, given as close to the top of the hour as possible at a natural break in program offerings.
