#GoRadio 10: DJ The News

Today’s prompt comes from Fernando Arruda

On one device, turn on the daily radio or TV daily news. On another device, turn on your music player. Leave the news playing and "DJ" music that appropriately scores what is being said. Remember that stopping music is also a very effective way to score something.
