This lady should be checked for old fillings. I heard music especially when things were quiet. This went on for years. I never told my dr because I thought he would think I was crazy. I could tell my husband what the song was and he would turn on the radio and that song would be playing. Where I was physically located seemed to determine if I would hear the music . (I now assume I was out of the range of that station) These filings were put in around 1949. Around 15 years later I lost a very large filling to a hard cookie. Guess what? No more music! Whatever that filling was made of, it must have made it a transmitter.
