One of the first Radiolab episodes I ever listened to from 2007 features Diana Deutsch, a professor specializing in the Psychology of Music, who could extract song out even the most monotonous of drones. (Think Ben Stein in Ferris Bueller. Bueller.)
I remembered this when I was tasked to create a unique ringtone for Tropo’s Phono WebRTC client. Few actually know that I borrowed the ringtone for Phono directly from this Radiolab episode.
