Music from the Hearts of Space

I've never been a fan of so-called ambient or New Age music, although it is pretty good for combatting insomnia. But it is bearable--and even listenable--when it has been mixed with radio transmissions from the Apollo missions, as the SomaFM Internet radio station has done with their Mission Control Channel. Right now, they are playing the Apollo 12 mission over what I can only assume is called "Bedtime on Tralfamadore" or something. It's very cool. And, hey, it sure as heck beats talk radio.
