Wonder if the controller was trying to tell them, too much was garbled. Funny how she told them at the very end.

No, the controller didn't try to tell them. Though there was the obligatory "Check stuck mic" call on the frequency with the stuck mic from another pilot.  That never works as the guy with the stuck mic is transmitting, and is not going to hear you.  Though it sounds like he called on the company frequency as well.

ATC will call stuck mic, but only after the mic un-sticks.
