United 3759, a CRJ-700 operated by Mesa Airlines, made an emergency landing at New Castle County Airport in Wilmington, DE on 01/29/14 due to smoke in cabin. Audio is edited down to include only this flight and starts when asks for emergency descent while on Washington Center. Audio continues on Philadelphia Approach and stops when switches to tower frequency as tower frequency was down at the time. The audio ends with the radio transmissions of the fire department response.

Nice find!  IMHO it sounded like the first pilot was not getting the urgency of the situation across to the controller; he requested a descent to 10000 four times.  Only after the second pilot came on did they get the clearance for the immediate descent.  You couldn't hear the controller side of the conversation while they were talking with Washington Center so maybe that's not how it was but it seemed like that to me...
