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.

The shift in landscape is inevitable, especially when you live on a fault-line, like many of us on the West Coast do.

This raises questions about what life in the Bay Area would be like after a major earthquake, and how prepared we are to cope with it.
