FBI tape recordings of Mafia gangsters?


Does anybody here remember a website which held real police and FBI tapes digitised for people to listen to? It was things like how the steak at a restaurant got stuck in teeth or how the angina was worse but I found it entertaining, for some reason. I seem to recall a green header with a black edge?
Does that ring a bell with anyone?
Sorry, I know this it off topic even for general but I enjoyed listening to these recordings and my google-fu has failed me.

I know it's bad practice but I'll bump this just in case.
If not, never mind, but I did find the old mafiosos funny.

This was a specific site, though, with a kind of "episode" based set of files where you got to know the protagonists. Old timers talking about the best chiropractor or pile cream, that kind of thing.

maybe the site has been around since before the days of youtube.
I can well imagine that the person who ran it uploaded what they had to youtube before closing the site down.
have you tried web.archive.org?
