When I was a teenager I was drawn to listening to shortwave radio oscillations, primarily as a means of helping me sleep. I liked the very deep, naturally phased oscillations. Thanks to subharmonics these oscillations are inherently musical. As the frequencies drifted, ghostlike voices would appear, making a collage- sometimes Voice of America, baseball results, etc, or perhaps a Radio Moscow English language broadcast, boasting about the forthcoming grain harvests. However on one memorable occasion it wasn't Cold War ideology I picked up; it was the voice of heaven: Oum Kalsoum. I had inadvertently tuned in to Radio Cairo and Radio Tehran. I still think that all music sounds better imbued with shortwave radio phasing. I remember 1979 being a great year for shortwave radio oscillations. This is due to their link with sunspot activity, which peaks and declines every 11 years or so.
