      I heard a loud pop on the radio this evening at the office and the radio station went dead.
      I then tried another station and everything was just static.
      Not even any barely perceptible music in the static.
      Perplexed at maybe my old Sony radio finally biting the dust, I asked a coworker in another office to check his radio.
      He couldn't get anything either.
      This went on for about ten minutes.

      Solar flares?

      Maybe if you're on bath salts... everyone else hears music, but you just hear static?
