Audiograph Third Birthday Special
Welcome to Audiograph – the Bay Area’s sonic signature. Each week, we play you a sound recorded somewhere in the Bay Area, and ask you to tell us what it is, and where we recorded it. We reveal the story behind our mystery sounds every Thursday on Crosscurrents.
It's our third birthday, and we've produced a special half-hour edition of Audiograph that brings together some of our favorite sounds and stories from 2015.
- Meet the people who power San Francisco's Tuesday siren.
- A motorcycle club hosts bare-knuckle fights in an Oakland parking lot.
- Rod Dibble and his infamous cowbell draw crowds to an Oakland piano bar.
- The night San Francisco's last lesbian bar closed for good.
Congratulations, Julian Roque, you guessed all the clues! We'll send you a KALW hoodie.
For everyone else, check out our Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr pages for updates about next week's clue.
We can't wait to bring you more of the Bay Area's sonic identity in 2016; be sure to call us at 415-264-7106 to tell us where we should record next.
