Audiograph's Sound of the Week: San Francisco Police Academy

Feb 5, 2015

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 our project, Audiograph, a crowd-sourced collaborative radio project mapping the sonic signature of each of the Bay Area’s nine counties. By using the sounds of voices, nature, industry, and music, Audiograph tells the story of where you live, and the people who live there with you. Every Thursday, we reveal the origins of that week's sound on Crosscurrents, and here in weekly blog posts.

Listen above for the full answer... 

CAPTAIN GREG YEE: We have 10 district stations in San Francisco, and within those 10 districts you have unique neighborhoods, which are heavily influenced by the cultural backgrounds of the residents who live there, and you need to understand that.

Congratulations to this week's winner, Blair Cunningham. We'll have a new sound for you to guess and another chance to win coming up later this week.  

In the meantime, is there a sound from your life that should be featured on Audiograph? Call at 415-264-7106 and tell us about the sound of where you live.
