If you enjoy it, I suggest you stop mentioning it to other people right now. 
It sounds like somebody is running a microtransmitter for their own 
listening pleasure and the signal is bleeding out. A guy in the 
administrative offices of the university I used to work at did that -- he 
bought an old transmitter from a drive-in movie theatre, hooked it up to a 
100-CD changer full of classical music, and everyone in the building tuned 
in all day.

This is the sort of thing that the CRTC (or the FCC for you folks) usually 
doesn't worry too much about, but if it's drawn to their attention they're 
obliged to go all Pump Up The Volume on people.
