Actually, I fucked up there - I have a number of these broadcast messages - and this one doesn't say not to be "alarmed" - I'll have to dig that one up. First time gaijins would usually freak out a bit when these were first heard - that and the continual earth tremors - hence the addition of "don't be alarmed.. there is no disaster" said in very calm Japanese American.

Do you mind if I sample from the Atmospheres mp3s, some of these are lovely, and this one I particularly like. I'd love to hear the "there is no disaster" one, however...

No problems - I'll dig up the missing no more disasters in the meantime.

Jon - the disaster message is here - I received some heat for uploading so many, so this will be it (unless Matt deletes it - as I requested he earlier do to the others due to the bandwidth hogging concerns he and others have). It aint music either - so that may be another reason they may go.

Hope you find some use for it.

If it or the others disappear - just email me (anything at - I'll whack them up somewhere else.
