    I just powered down my pc instead of restarting it, and my monitor (speaker) was still on. And for some reason it was picking up BBC Radio Bristol, not very clear, but it was definitely there and it's only connected to my mixer and PC and it only happens when the PC is off.

    needles can pick up radio frequencies very very slightly

    i used to live near Southampton and always used to get random french radio through my headphones

    decks don't have to be on to pick up the sound, otherwise you couldn't do "breaks"

    yeah even when they are off if you spin a tune whilst the needle is on the record noise will come out the channel

    I'll ask Chuck Norris to stay round :D


    Ah yes, I've done this before, I see now. That's rather odd, never knew that it could pick up radio frequencies :)

    Well they're in the middle of my room so it's easily possible, plus I live around a lot of overhead cables. I can just hear it, quite crackly, but it's easy to listen to. Shame it's only Radio Bristol.
