Alarm Clock Mystery

We have 2 alarm clock radios in our room. One is on our nightstand next to our bed, and is used as a clock and a morning alarm. The other is in Sophie's swing and is used solely for white noise. They are plugged into different outlets on opposite walls of the room. Neither is connected to an outlet controlled by a lightswitch or anything.

Here's the weird part: Whenever our radio alarm turns on, Sophie's radio turns off. It's not just the alarm, it's whenever the radio is on on that clock. And Sophie's noise will start right back up again when we turn our radio off. So we have to turn the alarm off right away in the morning, because Sophie wakes up the instant her white noise isn't playing anymore. If we turn the alarm radio off soon enough, her noise will come on quickly and she'll go right back to sleep.

Can anyone explain this?

Weird radio waves? Who cares about your radio, that is one cute baby! I don't think I have ever seen a baby that is so pretty when she is asleep. It looks to me like she is smiling at you Abbie. I can't wait to see her.

It is obvious that your radio alarm sucks the electricity out of the room. You are just lucky that neither of you has a pacemaker.
