The mysterious broadcast is the broadcast inviting you to the Big MT. The broadcast enthusiastically invites you to a "Midnight Science Fiction Feature!" while playing a downbeat jazz theme that "makes your head hurt." Newly introduced jazz tunes (including old ones from Radio New Vegas and Mojave Music Radio) are played, so the player can listen to them if they tire of the other Mojave radio stations.


The Mysterious broadcast can be heard upon installation of Old World Blues. It appears to originate from the crashed satellite at the Mojave Drive-in.





  • The broadcast can be listened to in nearly any location in the game. In the Sierra Madre, the Courier can select it but no music will be heard.
  • The songs are set to play completely randomly, because the station does not keep track of the song it played last, meaning that you might get the same song playing 2 or 3 times in a row.
  • This is the only station, besides the Sierra Madre Broadcast, that can be played while in Big MT. Camp Guardian Radio is blacked out, and all of the other stations are removed from the list and not even visible while playing Old World Blues.
    • Also, this is the only broadcast that will automatically play when beginning the aforementioned add-on and will stop upon completing it.


The mysterious broadcast appears only in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Old World Blues.
