Single Serving Site of the Day

Single Serving Site of the Day


Single Serving Site of the Day:You are listening to Los Angeles” — a brilliant, Scanner-esque mashup of live LAPD radio chatter and Creative Commons-licensed ambient music ripped from SoundCloud — is the brainchild of MeFite Eric “idontlikewords” Eberhardt.

He explains how the idea for the site came about:

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.

Next up: An iPhone app.
