Dennis Wingo: A funny story from today. I was running a Lunar Orbiter tape today and all of a sudden I started hearing music coming from the audio speaker. It was really nice, staring out with a piano solo and then a couple of other pieces then a full on concert by Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass.
It was really cool to hear this old sixties music coming across the deep space network. Even funnier is that about ten minutes after it started, Ken Zin wandered over and asked if that was coming from the speaker. We laughed about it and then a little while later our new student Marco came out and was wondering where the hell the music was coming from.
We all had a good laugh today listening to the Deep Space Music Network!
