Here is my best explanation:

'why pout when radio interference obliterates the' is the definition.
I know nothing about this answer so I cannot tell whether this works.

'signal?' is the wordplay.
I cannot really understand how this works, but
'signal?' could be 'pe' (pe is a kind of signal) and 'pe' is present in the answer.
This explanation may well be incorrect...
