Audiograph's Sound of the Week: Contra Costa County's town crier

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.


REDMOND O'COLONIES: Nobody can top the town crier because there is nothing better than having the news delivered personally.

No one guessed this clue this week!
