From New Scientist April 1, 1995, paraphrased:

'In March 1995 Gunther Nimtz of the University of Cologne
announced at a colloquium in Snowbird, Utah, that his team at
Cologne had not only measured superluminal speeds for their
microwaves, but had actually sent a signal faster than light. The
signal was Mozart's 40th Symphony. What they did was frequency
modulate their microwave source with the music and then measure
how quickly the music arrived after traversing the forbidden zone
in a waveguide.

According to Nimtz the 40th hopped 12 cm of space at 4.7 times
the speed of light. Nimtz had a recording to prove it.'

The New Scienitst adds that skeptics are not sure that
Mozart's 40th is a real signal.
