8 or so bees in my bonnet
back in the 90's, whilst trawling the airwaves, i discovered a test broadcast
that i was fascinated by, i'd never heard anything like this on the
radio, although it was instantly recognisable. i recorded it and it
became a firm favourite for many years for times when i could not sleep.
i was not alone with the machine it seemed. i had a virtual dawn chorus
at my fingertips...
i still cherish my lp of 'songs of the humpback whale'. the yanks sent it to the stars with voyager with big hello from everyone...
these days though you can help whale
research by attempting to match snippets of whalesong. some kind of
whale dating agency, if you like.
or, when insomnia is getting too much
you can mix your own slumber track
of course if you are lucky enough to be a technician at arecibo, you
could just go outside...
