Noisy steam radiator


I live in a 70 year-old apartment and the steam radiators in my apartment go off like canons every 3 hours or so, especially the one in my bedroom. The noisy symphony lasts for about half and hour or so and then it dies down...until the next playing roughly 3 hours later! Last winter I really struggled with this and really don't want to go through another winter of this.

I am attaching an image and an mp3 of the sound the radiator makes. Any suggestion(s) on how the problem can be resolved will be greatly appreciated.

Couldn't hear much on the MP3. If the radiator is out of level , you could have water covering the end of the pipe. You might try shimming up the end away from the pipe and see if that helps.
