Blagojevich Judge: Secret FBI tapes will be released as they're played. Well, not exactly.

Secret FBI recordings of Rod Blagojevich and his top aides will be made public as they're played in court, Judge James Zagel said today at the trial's conclusion.

Zagel cautioned that they cannot be released until the defense has its chance to cross examine the witness on the recordings.

That's tough from a media standpoint because we may hear stuff one day in court but will have to wait days before we're able to publish it to the public.

We may hear recordings tomorrow, since Monk, by his own account, is on many of them.

His cell phone was tapped by the FBI in the fall of 2008.
