What do an accidental pinata-maker, an aspiring hip hop artist, a perennial politician, and a beekeeper have in common? You can hear all of their stories, and more, this Saturday, June 2, at the Polish Club in San Francisco.
Help KALW celebrate the launch of Hear Here: A Pop-Up Radio Project at a live storytelling event. Learn about the diverse characters that make up the cities of Oakland and San Francisco through the words of oral storytellers, local radio reporters, and musicians.
