Then the loud sound did seem to fade. Came back like a slow voice on a wave of phase (648 kHz). That weren't no DJ, that was hazy cosmic jive.

The Radio Caroline pirate ship was probably one of the best-known “unofficial” radio stations in Britain. By sticking to off-coast locations, the boat ensured that it could remain outside of the legal reach of the British authorities. Without any broadcasting laws to hold them back, the DJs on boats like Radio Caroline gave their listeners the raw, authentic music and entertainment they were looking for. These rock-and-roll pirates changed radio forever.

I know, I just now jumped out of world from there, and heard it just fine, thank you. Now hopefully others will take that URL and paste it into their parcel/region (world>parcel details>sound) and let that stream kill the silence that so many Opensim regions are infected with. At least until they find the ever so elusive (sarcasm) OSWRS radios, and choose a radio that best suits their regions theme, if one is had. Because as much as I like Radio Caroline, I know for a fact that there are many other genres I like hearing while I travel the grids, commercial-free of course. :)
