There's an NPR program called 'Echoes' that plays in the Harrisburg, PA area. It plays a few other areas, too, but nowhere I've ever lived. It's this weird kind of ambient electronica stuff. Not a drum beat to be heard, and the announcer has this kind of deep, melodic but fairly monotone voice.

I only get to hear it when I visit my friend in Harrisburg, but every time I'm out cold.

If it's not totally silent, I generally will sleep better if there is any steady source noise. Doesn't matter much if it's music, a fan, an air conditioner, traffic, whatever. What kills me is when the noise changes. Any unusual noise and I'll wake up, even if it's quieter than what I'm listening to to sleep.

I cant sleep without some sort of background noise, but it cant be distracting...like the radio or tv, or the neighbours arguing.

The fan, the air con or static on the radio.

Rain is the best, but a very rare occurance here.

It's not free, but is available on-line here.
