Woken by my own music on the radio!!!

A very peculiar thing happened to me the other night...I fell asleep listening to the BBC World Service. I awoke suddenly in the early hours to hear a piece of my music and, weirdly, a man was talking about hallucinating over the top of it. Having been deeply asleep a few seconds before, it took me a few moments to realise that I wasn't hallucinating myself, that, thankfully, the voice wasn't inside my head and I was actually listening to an episode of the science programme, Discovery which dealt with 'researchers who are trying to unlock the mysteries of hallucination.'

My ears had obviously decided to drag me out of a deep sleep to point out that my piece was on the radio!!!
