Audiograph's Sound of the Week: San Francisco Giants' Organist

Steve Hogan plays at AT&T Park, September 2013.

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 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...

STEVE HOGAN: Since I grew up hearing the ballpark organ, it is a piece of the experience that I miss when it's not there, that's for sure. I think it helps me enjoy the game just a little bit more, and I hope I do that for these people.

Congratulations to Francis Morgan, you're this week's winner.
