Happy Birthday, Audiograph!

We've got our party hats on and our noisemakers blaring -- this week, Audiograph turns one! 

It's been one year since Audiograph debuted on KALW's airwaves, and to celebrate, we've put together a short collection of some of our favorite sounds that you can listen to in the player above. 

Our sonic treasure hunt starts up again this weekend with brand new sounds for the new year. And, as always, feel free to call us anytime at 415-264-7106 and let us know what sound in the Bay Area we should record next.
