This four-hour program melds multiple genres into a cohesive playlist of World, Electronic, Disco, Soul, Indie, Pop and beyond. The Golden Record is inspired by NASA’S 1977 collection of sounds, images and songs that is currently drifting on the Voyager satellites (1 & 2) in interstellar space for some unknown, highly intelligent being to find or intercept and discover its contents; a playlist if you will, made by man, reaching out to the universe for connection. The record includes greetings in 55 languages, whale songs, sounds of nature, Bach, Chuck Berry and folk music from around the world. Made of copper and plated in gold, the records are labeled “The Sounds of Earth” and will last for approximately 1 billion years.
