Riffed from the Headlines is our weekly quiz where we choose three riffs linked by one story in the news. Guess the story that links the riffs and you could win a Day 6 tote bag and a personalized note from our very own Brent Bambury.

Last week's clues were The Rolling Stones with "2000 Light Years From Home", The Carpenters with "Calling Occupants of Interplanetary Craft" and Joy Division with "Transmission".

Ernesto Spiteri of Toronto, Ontario correctly guessed the headline we were looking for: Russian astronomers detect a radio transmission from 100 light years away.

Congratulations Ernesto! A Day 6 tote bag is on its way to you.
