Meet The Man In UC Berkeley's Bell Tower

This story most recently aired in the 3/13/23 episode of Crosscurrents.

In this Audiograph, we climb inside the third tallest bell and clock-tower in the world, UC Berkeley's Campanile.

JEFF DAVIS: Don’t confuse a bell tower with a carillon — that would be like confusing a living room with a sofa. The carillon is the instrument that’s at the top of the tower.

This is part of Audiograph, a 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.
