What do you get when you combine meditative, atmospheric music and the LAPD scanner? Why you get You Are Listening to Los Angeles, of course!
I love it. To me, it's the perfect soundtrack for Los Angeles. Kind of spooky and noirish, yet also strangely mesmerizing. Defining the sound of a city by combining dreamy music with the voices of its police dispatch? I wouldn't have expected it to work, but it does. The internet wins again.
You can also listen to New York, Chicago, San Fran and Montreal.
