Radio broadcasts leave Earth at the speed of light. Scroll away from Earth and hear how far the biggest hits of the past have travelled. The farther away you get, the longer the waves take to travel there—and the older the music you’ll hear.

This is nothing short of awesome!

So if I leave in my rocket ship today, traveling away from earth at the speed of light, I'll be stuck listening to the radio songs of today no matter how far away I get? Phone Post 3.0

No, LM v LY.  



The further you get away, those older the songs get.  The site starts off with Light Minutes so the songs are more recent.



For example, it takes us about 8 minutes to get to Pluto from Earth at the speed of light, so on that trip you could listen to Shut up and Dance about twice.  =D
