Police Scanner is, without a doubt, one of the best apps to listen to the radio. It offers users the chance to listen to hundreds of broadcasts from the US so they can hear about the latest fires, weather, and police alerts, and connect to other listeners.
You can access a top 50 list of the best and most listened-to channels, check out the more recent alerts, and explore channels by theme and location. Connect directly to public safety, weather, fire, or railway broadcasts. You can also choose to be notified when a lot of people are listening to a channel and know if something important is happening.
Unfortunately this app has ads and sometimes, pretty invasive ones at that. It only works in the US.

Explanation of why various permissions are needed:
The "Modify global system settings" permission is needed in order for the app to be able to change the device's "Wi-Fi Sleep Policy" to "Never" (but only with your permission). When you run the app, it will check the setting and ask you if you would like for it to be changed to "Never" (if it's set to something else) so that the scanner audio won't be interrupted if the screen turns off while you're listening over Wi-Fi.
