It's a new trend that people are doing to help them relax.  They listen to police scanners with ambient music played underneath.

While hearing emergencies broadcasted for the world to hear might sound stressful to some, other's are flocking to them to chill out.  There's just something about the calm music and the monotone dispatcher's voice that is a bit hypnotic...

The website is called YouAreListening.to and you can go on, choose the police department you'd like to listen to, match it up with a music track, and play them together.

Give it a try for yourself.  What do you think?  Is it relaxing?
