Last night my best friend was on my local radio station giving a talk about local projects ongoing in our area that he and a few others are currently
working on. It was his first ever air-time so he was quite excited and wanted to record the show. Anyway, it turns out that our local station is on FM
frequency only so I couldn’t find anywhere online to record the show. I dug out my old cassette/radio player and set it to start recording 10
minutes before he was due on air whilst I set off for work.
Later that night I got home and he wanted to come over to mine to see how it sounded. The whole show (all 73 seconds of it LOL) recorded perfectly
fine and once it was over we decided to chill out for a bit and play on my xbox 360 whilst listening to the rest of the tape. As it got to the final
minute or so of the tape, it suddenly started re-tuning the station as if someone was actually there changing the station manually. At first I thought
it might have been my landlord who came in whilst I was working and changed the station. I was kinda baffled though because I left the volume down so
no-one else could hear it when I was at work, so how would he know it was on?
Then something even stranger happened. As it was channel-hopping between stations it fixed itself onto a certain frequency (can’t say which one coz
I wasn’t there ) and some strange noises were being played. It almost sounds like some kind of alien talk with some weird atmospheric background
Im not suggesting this is ACTUAL alien talk/audio before anyone slates me for it, it just sounds weird, and....well, alien like
I converted the cassette tape to mp3 and tried reversing the audio, speeding it up, slowing it down etc but I cannot make anything of it.
My friend called the local radio station to ask if there station was on air and functioning properly at 9.15pm (approx time of channel changing) and
they said it was fine. When I got home the station was still manually set to our local station and the volume turned down.
I phoned my landlord and he’s actually been away for the weekend in Ireland so it certainly wasn’t him. Nobody else has keys to my place so I
haven’t got a clue what’s gone on
The ending of the audio file is exactly how it ends on the cassette tape. About 10/15 seconds into the weird noises, the tape finishes and that’s
It’s actually freaking me out a bit. The cassette tape was brand new from the wrapper and nobody has been into my flat to mess with the recording
Call it a hoax on my part if you will, but I seriously haven’t got a clue what’s happened here. Anyone got any
idea?? I would’ve blamed
static and other general interferences if it wasn’t for the channels being manually changed
Here’s the link for the audio (it’s a direct download rapidshare file, so no waiting or premium account required)
Sorry if this is the wrong forum by the way, mods feel free to move it if you wish. I was thinking of putting it in Skunk Works or Paranormal Studies,
but i’ll leave that up to you
