Earth Day Special: 24 Hours of Nature Sounds Around The Bay Area

Join us for a 'Nature Takeover' of KALW airwaves

On Thursday, April 22, KALW will air 24 hours of soundscapes to transport listeners around the Bay Area — from Ocean Beach to Wildcat Canyon Park to Bort Meadow near Lake Chabot, and many other places in between, including a backyard in Oakland where we'll hear the accidental chorus of nature in the city.

We suggest you leave the broadcast on all day, open the windows—and your mind and heart. Immerse yourself in the sounds of places you think you know.

And, as always, please let us know what you think at kalw@kalw.org

This 24-hour broadcast was produced and edited by David Kwan. Thank you to our recordists (listed below) and to Mario Butzner, Phil Hartman, and Marissa Ortega-Welch for production and coordination assistance.
