9:28am on Monday, 18th July, 2005:
When I woke up this morning, I was greeted by the words "young man", as sung by Village People in their song YMCA. The radio alarm came on at the precise moment that the words "young man" were sung.
After dropping my wife off at the station, I switched on Radio 4 and the very first words spoken were "young man". They were followed by "he visited Germany and heard Hitler speak", so presumably they were preceded by "As a". However, I didn't switch on in time to hear "As a", just "young man". The piece, by the way, concerned Sir Edward Heath, who died yesterday.
So twice the radio came on at the precise moment that the words "young man" were about to be uttered.
It's the existence of such coincidences that makes the gullible believe in horoscopes.
