Are these audio files available from some other source to verify they have not been faked?
Copernicus, you're right. I apologize to have not provided
other sources, so far.

'Space Hackers' – an intriguing documentary
Two young Italian amateur radio enthusiasts eaves-dropped on top secret space transmissions and in doing so lifted the lid on the race to space.
The brothers Achille and Giovanbattista Judica-Cordiglia
had their passions ignited by tuning into Sputnik 1 in 1957.
With home built equipment they monitored both the Soviets and the Americans as they explored space. Their activities did anger authorities behind the Iron Curtain. At one time Radio Moscow branded the pair as ‘space gangsters’ after they exposed failures of early space flights.
Their extensive archive of audio recordings includes
that of a human heart-beat and laboured breathing from space in 1961, which
an Italian cardiologist diagnosed as being from a dying man. On another
occasion cosmonauts were heard
The boys entered an Italian television quiz show with the topic of space and won easily. With the cash prize they bought tickets and headed to the United States.
NASA officials were initially in disbelief when the brothers played their tape recording of Astronaut John Glenn from space, but soon recognised their talent that led to collaborative efforts.
The documentary, Space Hackers, depicts amateur radio’s spirit of experimentation which includes orbit predictions, coping with Doppler frequency shift, extensive antenna design and construction.
