    I've read up about these before. Fascinating and creepy at the same time. Not even consigned to the history bin yet either. Nothing sends a chill up my spine like that Lincolnshire Poacher tune either. I've listened to that documentary before too, fascinating stuff.

    Plenty of more mysterious radio stuff out there too. The Buzzer and Yosemite Sam to name just a couple.
