Can you guess the Audiograph sound this week? January 14, 2013

Poster designed by Rich Black

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.

Gammon explains the controversy over Berkeley’s Measure T, which would allow for dense growth on six sites in West Berkeley. Local public employees union SEIU local 1021 wanted to endorse it, but the union’s county leadership voted against it.

We’ve been honoring the people in our neighborhoods who display a healthy dose of passion in their lives, day in and day out, inspiring us to generate a little of our own. Listener Carmen Dicinque called us recently to tell us about horse trainer John Charlebois. KALW’s Alyssa Kapnik and Ashleyanne Krigbaum went out to meet Charlebois and his horses.

Listen to the profile above.
