Since radio waves are sent, they travel spread up into the deep into the universe at the speed of light. They swing their way through space and time, reflected and deflected by stars and planets. Where they will arrive is not certain, but their journey is long. Equipped with a sensitive radio receiver, it would be quite possible to receive a radio show from the 30s during a space walk. How would it sound after 80 years having been sent from earth?
