For Some Fans, The Tailgate Is The Main Event

Liz Mak


In this Audiograph, we meet fans tailgating ahead of an Oakland Raiders game. Some of them started as early as 6 a.m.

Rob Hobart: This is the least racist place you will go. No one here cares where you grew up, or the color of your skin. They just care that you're wearing silver and black.

This is an 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.

This story originally aired in February of 2016.
