During the seventies I came across this headline:
IS THIS RADIO STATION FROM ANOTHER WORLD?
In the weeks that followed these transmissions were dubbed by one reporter as "black star transmissions" the radio-phonics were not apparently transmitting from Earth but from some where far out in space.
The station was infrequent and transmitted strange music, sounds and some recognisable vocal snippets of terrestrial known songs, T.V. and film.
I remember an ad-lib description : Chopin's Nocturnes without the notes, Stockhausen's harsh electronics smoothed in a blender.
I became obsessed with this intermittent story for the few months it ran , even N.A.S.A. were allegedly asked to investigate but by all accounts refused.
I have never found anything anywhere pertaining to these reports and at the time none of the radio hams had any recordings of them that I know of.
So this mix is my humble version of how they may have crackled through the space waves onto Earth ears.
