So I am looking for some entertainment while working (other than MEFI). Thought that getting a small scanner to listen to all the radio and walkie talkie traffic downtown would be good. Any recommendations? [more inside]

Some years back, I recall hearing an interview with someone regarding the relative value of the awards given out to survivors in wrongful death suits. Might have been on "This American Life." Help me find it... [more inside]

someone mentions that "...several years ago, one of CBC's main news programs became quite adept at calling pay phones in the midst of the world's current trouble spots and interviewing whoever picked up. Don't know where they managed to get the numbers, but it was unique, raw and on the spot journalism."
Does anyone know what program this was, or where I could obtain transcripts or recordings of this?

I like (both in theory and practice) terrestrial FM radio. But at the insistence of my girlfriend, I'm seriously considering getting XM for Christmas. If I got it, I'd want one of those XM2Go models -- the iPod/Walkman kind of things that have a built-in FM transmitter so I could use it in-car. Thoughts? [more inside]

OK, so I discovered the CBC radio show "The Great Eastern" via MeFi. They had a great site that archived show scripts, full MP3s, offshoot fan projects and many other bits of content that helped create an alternate universe. My question? The site (http://www.schooner.ce.mun.ca:8080/great/) is no longer available and I feel like I've lost a goofball interweb friend. Anyone know what happened? Related: Anyone know what Paul Moth is up to?

The factory-installed stereo in my car has stopped playing CDs, and my commute is fairly long, so this is essentially unacceptable. I've looked into getting it repaired, but the whole stereo'll have to be sent away for weeks, and it'll end up costing a bunch. But I've yet to find an add-on in-dash stereo for $200 or less that isn't terribly ugly. [more inside]

My friend has a VW Gol (not a Golf). She just had her stereo stolen. The wires that hook into the car's speaker system are fine and dandy. Is there a way to attach a portable CD Player to these wires alone (without replacing the stereo system and using a cd-player adaptor etc.)? [more inside]

I am looking for a recording of a recent radio interview with New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin on radio with WWL's Garland Robinette. The interview took place sometime around 6 or 6:30 am UTC (- or roughly a half hour to an hour ago as I am posting this), and is the most amazing thing I've ever heard from a politician. Some quick-on-the-draw person must have recorded it. [more inside]

My boyfriend tried to subscribe to a Premiere Radio networks feed today and it would not accept his credit card/debit card or the address on his credit card. He has no access to the show he wants, or any show. He checked his bank account to make sure they didn't charge him and lo and behold - they did - 14 times. [more inside]

Short and simple. I'm interested in finding out if there are any internet radio stations which broadcast full albums.
Alternatively any free/pay services which allow you to listen online to full albums rather than just individual tracks. I'm not at this point interested in buying music just listening to it.
Please bear in mind I am in the UK and services such as Rhapsody etc. aren't available here AFAIK.

Just started a gig as a radio DJ at a local college radio station. I've always been a fan of slipping in random "found sounds" and other bits of audio chaos into mixtapes I've made for friends, and would like to continue the trend with my show. Think "How To Speak Hip
", "Picking Up Girls Made Easy
", Ken Nordine
, or ANYTHING that's ever played on WFMU
. I've found WFMU's On The Download
and UBUWeb's 365 Days Project
great resources, but I've pillaged them for all they are worth - Any other suggestions for obscuro audio out there?

RadioFilter: A friend told me she heard a segment on country music's popularity in Ethiopia on WNYC (820 AM, public radio in New York) this morning. Despite searching the websites of every show they aired, I cannot find audio or any mention of the segment. Did anyone else catch this, and if so, can you help me find it?
