      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?

      I hadn't thought of bath salts.
      But how would being bat **** crazy affect my radio reception?

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