The premise is that you're journeying away from Earth and listening to the (predominantly Western) hit songs of the year on the radio, all the way back to 1906 CE. The info section explains that the stars are not to scale and that binary systems have been reduced to one star, and also that the radio signals would likely become infused with or reduced to background noise. It does show star/constellation names in little popups. It's still interesting to hear the music style change as one goes back in time. As you go further and further, the site adds audio distortions like static and crackling and sometimes slightly distorted sounds. Or maybe some of those effects are from me purging my laptop and taking up quite a lot of disk space....
