Ambient music and live LAPD police radio. What's not to like?
The night the Giants won the World Series there were a lot of people on Twitter referencing the live police scanner webcast from soma.fm and I gave it a listen. Interesting stuff to be sure, but I got bored listening to just the voices and started playing some instrumental music in the background. I liked the results but it was complicated to explain to people how to replicate the mix (i.e. opening multiple copies of iTunes or VLC) so I made this site to simplify the process. If you have any CC-licensed music on SoundCloud that you think would work here I'd love to include it, so please let me know!
