LBK who is Glenn Miller?
Glenn Miller was a famous big band orchestra leader and composer during the 30's and 40's.
From the Long Con...
Back at the campfire, Hurley is reading a manuscript called Sayid walks up with the radio and a pole. Together, they tune it past Danielle's transmission, and find a clear signal from a classic jazz station playing Glenn Miller's Moonlight Serenade
. Sayid tells Hurley that, because signals from that frequency bounce off the ionosphere, the music could be coming from anywhere. Hurley responds, "Or any time... just kidding, dude."

If I want still earlier, I could listen on WFMU to The Antique Phonograph Radio Hour or Thomas Edison's Attic (alternating weeks).
Yes Suds...but you
aren't on the island
I realize that radio wave transmissions never actually die...but I've been thinking, what if when we see Richard in his long hair and pirate shirt...we actually have seen him in another time period without being aware of it? What if somehow they've been moving through time all along (think Hurley bird). Even crazier...did Rousseau actually remember Sayid ...?
JACK: [to Sayid] What the hell was that?
SAYID: He is one of them.
JACK: Yeah? Did he tell you that?
JACK: Then how do you know?
SAYID: Because I know. He is one of them.
JACK: I think that Rousseau thought that about you once, Sayid. If I'm not mistaken she strapped you down, she shocked you, all because she thought you were one of them.
(Referring to this scene...)
SAYID: Please just listen to me. I keep telling you I don't know who Alex is. I'm a survivor of a plane crash. I found a wire on the beach, I followed it. I thought it might have something to do with the transmission we picked up on our receiver. A recording, a mayday, with a French woman repeating on a loop for 16 years.
DANIELLE: Si quelqu'un m'entend, je vous en prie, venez à notre aide... Il les a tués. Il les a tous
tués... [coming out of the shadows] 16 years. Has it really been that long?
DANIELLE: You just happened to hear my distress call? I know what you are
. [She knocks him out with the butt of a rifle].
DANIELLE: So, you heard my transmission -- came looking for me, for answers?
SAYID: I didn't know you were alive.
DANIELLE: Still lying.
SAYID: I'm not lying.
SAYID: Your distress signal? The message I heard, you said, "It killed them all."
DANIELLE: We were coming back from the Black Rock. It was them. They were the carriers.
SAYID: Who were the carriers?
DANIELLE: The others.
SAYID: What others? What is the Black Rock? Have you seen other people on this island?
DANIELLE: No, but I hear them. Out there, in the jungle. They whisper. [Long Pause.] You think I'm insane.
SAYID: I think you've been alone for too long.
