Audiograph's Sound of the Week: San Francisco's City Hall crooner

Oct 22, 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 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.

Listen above for the full answer...

WALTER PAULSON: I like to write the songs…People need to voice their opinions about things and the supervisor wants to hear the opinions of people. Sometimes it's not as good as people would like, but they hear the good and the bad together…They need to know.

Congratulations to Fran Culp, you're this week's winner. For everyone else, we'll have a new sound for you to guess and another chance to win next 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.
