This isn't a direct answer, but just the same ...
I recorded the sounds coming from an AM radio near my Sol while the game
TARG was playing. TARG's instructions also suggest doing this trick.
It is no coincidence since the author of TARG is the same guy who did
the trick at the now legendary meeting of the homebrew meeting -- steve
dompier (I know, others did it decades before him on even older machines).
You can listen to it yourself:
(the two are the same sounds, just in different formats)
