Answer: NASA has a long running tradition of beaming wake-up songs to manned spaceflights to wake up their crew members.

The first recorded occasion of this was in the Gemini 6A (1) mission. The song sent out was Jack Jones (2) version of Hello Dolly (3).

    Jack Jones sings Hello Dolly and wakes Wally (Schirra) on Gemini 6 instead. First instance of diagetic music in space.

    NASA tradition of waking up a space crew with piped in music also started on the Gemini 6A (pic 1) mission. According to NASA records, the Gemini 6A crew was awoken by the singer Jack Jones (pic 2) serenading them with new lyrics to “Hello Dolly” (audio), probably something along the lines of “Hello Wally” which goes something like this..

    Hello, Wally. This is Jack Jones, Wally.
    It’s nice to know you’re up where you belong.
    All systems go, Wally, you’re 4-0, Wally.
    Tom, that’s Navy jazz for razz ma tazz.
    You can’t go wrong.
    And while the Earth’s turning,
    Midnight oil was burning,
    To bring you your old favorite songs
    From way back when,
    So, set the wax fellas.
    See you back in Houston town again.

    According to NASA records, the Gemini 6A crew was awoken by the singer Jack Jones serenading them with new lyrics to “Hello Dolly”. The first photo is the insignia for the Gemini 6A mission.

    Actually the song had been written to be “Hello Wally” for Wally Schirra, one of the crew members.

    3. “Hello Dolly”

    The Gemini 6A crew was awoken by the singer Jack Jones serenading them with new lyrics to “Hello Dolly”, probably something along the lines of “Hello Wally”. And this apparently started the NASA tradition of waking up a space crew with music.

    Also, had something to do with him giving a performance during a commercial break of a NBC presentation on space exploration and Gemini during that same year. Lost the link during googling.
