Hear Here Community Engagement Specialist Anne Huang interviews Esther Goolsby at the 81st Avenue East Oakland Library.
Hear Here is KALW’s local community storytelling project. We seek out the stories of people who live and work in San Francisco and Oakland neighborhoods – and share what we hear on air and online!

Hear Here is currently recording stories in the Visitacion Valley, SF and East Oakland neighborhoods.

Take a listen to some of the stories we’ve collected below…

We've heard stories of immigration...


...and family...



...and work...



...and more.

Making Connections

Sometimes the stories we collect don't just stop at the radio.



How it Works

Hear Here partners with public libraries and community organizations to capture the often untold stories of the surrounding neighborhoods. We set up a date to show up at the library with our microphones and sit down for short, recorded conversations with participants. Every participant receives a CD copy of their interview. Some stories will air on KALW 91.7FM!
