Audiograph's Sound of the Week: The BART operator

May 5, 2016

All week long, we've been playing this sound, and asking you to guess what exactly it is and where exactly in the Bay Area we recorded it.

This auditory guessing game is part of Audiograph, a crowd-sourced collaborative radio project mapping the Bay Area’s sonic signature. Audiograph tells the story of where you live, and the people who live there with you. Every Thursday, we tell you the story behind our weekly mystery sound on Crosscurrents, and here in weekly blog posts.

ALAN HOLLIE: Being a child I always wanted to be the bus driver, train operator... They were like a staple in the neighborhood, and were looked upon with a lot of respect.

Our winner today is Sharon Robinson of Oakland. She knew not only where it was recorded, but who was making the announcements. Congratulations, Sharon!
