This is some redundant stuff, kind of.

When I was very young I got to play with a shortwave radio. It bent my brain.

Different stations would use sonic "bookmarks" to help listeners find the station's frequency before the broadcast started. These bookmarks were repeating loops of dialogue, music or tones. I don't know how they looped circa 1960 but I presume they used magnetic tape loops.

Some of these loops were hypnotic, especially since the ionosphere is nature's own phaser/flanger. So the loops were repetitive but never sounded quite the same way twice.

Sometimes when I'm noodling in the laboratory I stumble onto a repetition that hypnotizes me like those old bookmarks did.
