A REALLY fun site that allows you to drive world cities and listen to local radio at the same time

If you’ve ever been in another city and rented a car, you’ve probably poked around on the radio looking for something interesting. With COVID-19, that simple pleasure isn’t possible right now, so the next best thing is a site called Drive and Listen.

The right-hand side of the screen features a scrolling menu of world cities. Clicking on, say, Kyiv, will bring up a wide-screen dashcam view of a drive through the city while a lock radio station plays. You can even click on street noise for added realism.

Who knew that Kyiv had a jazz station? A complaint, though. Driving through Toronto brought up WNED, the NPR station out of Buffalo. Clicking through the selections brings up stations from Barrie and Oshawa. Oops.
