153-The Radio Station

Phenomena #153 requires a digital car radio. Satellite radio will not work, even if it gets local stations.

When driving along the river at night, a normally unused FM radio frequency will crackle to life. The frequency is 104.6. The DJ’s name is never mentioned, and the voice sounds different to whoever listens. The station plays swing music and, ten minutes after every hour, dedicates five minutes to news. If you listen on your birthday, the news will change. Instead of being the past day’s headlines, the news segment will be made up of events that have happened or will happen to you. Before midnight, the events will be those of the past year. After midnight, the events will be from the year to come.

The station identification message mentions the station’s address, but the address belongs to a defunct arcade whose only remaining machine is a fortune telling scale.
