I do a digest of unpopular music on the WWW, often having to translate bits of various radio station listings into English.

Not unusual; composers have used taped electronics alongside acoustic instruments before. But it was a goof: they translated "recorder" (the proto-flute) as "magnetofonový pás" - a tape.
