This is Audiograph--the Bay Area’s sonic signature. 

Each week, we’ll play you a sound recorded somewhere in the Bay Area. Your job? Listen to the sound (in the player above), figure out where it was recorded, and what exactly it is, then call us to let us know.

If you think you can identify this Audiograph sound of the week, call 415-264-7106. Also, tell us where to record next. We’ll give away a KALW t-shirt every week to one lucky caller. 

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.

One of the joys of baseball is listening to games on the radio. There’s the sound of the crowd, the crack of the bat, the 7th inning stretch … all woven together by the announcers’ excitement and disappointment as they do the live play-by-play.

If you’re a Giants’ fan, you’ve probably heard Jon Miller on 680AM. But let’s move up the dial a little bit … to 860AM.
