are called that because of what we define as the range of our hearing with
requires a medium to travel through (gas, liquid or solid), of which is not dense enough between
us and the sun to actually get any sound here.
However, a frequency that is transmitted as electromagnetic energy can be put through a receiver and converted to an audio frequency, and then sent
through a speaker for your ears to hear.
In the case of frequencies that are transmitted well below the radio frequency ranges (RF) and are oscillating within the human hearing range, we can
use a receiver to take that transmission, amplify it and again, put it through the speaker for someone to hear.
There is a study for acoustics of the sun, and it's known as Helioseismology
Helioseismology is the study of the propagation of wave oscillations, particularly acoustic pressure waves, in the Sun. Unlike seismic waves on
Earth, solar waves have practically no shear component (s-waves). Solar pressure waves are believed to be generated by the turbulence in the
convection zone near the surface of the sun. Certain frequencies are amplified by constructive interference. In other words, the turbulence
"rings" the sun like a bell. The acoustic waves are transmitted to the outer photosphere of the sun, which is where the light generated through
absorption of radiant energy from nuclear fusion at the centre of the sun, leaves the surface. These oscillations are detectable on almost any time
series of solar images, but are best observed by measuring the Doppler shift of photospheric absorption lines. Changes in the propagation of
oscillation waves through the Sun reveal inner structures and allow astrophysicists to develop extremely detailed profiles of the interior conditions
of the Sun.
The best description that I've ever read about Helioseismology:

Helioseismology is rather like trying to understand how a piano is built from the sounds that it makes when you drop it down a flight of
While there are many aspects and faces of researching the sun at these frequencies (which is more physical than actual radiation transmission), the
best description of the sun's "frequency" would be 126.22 Hz at 118.3 beats per minute.
So the sun is actually playing "B Natural" and is doing it at a tempo of Allegro
