KALW 91.7FM Local Public Radio is asking the residents of San Francisco and Oakland to tell stories of places in their neighborhood that are meaningful to them. We want you to share what and where's important in your life – your projects, your relationships, your passions – to help us put the “public” back in “public media.” Together, we’ll illuminate life in these two cities, just miles apart, and draw out the common threads that tie us together. And we’ll share what we’ve learned on air, online, on stage, and in public.
How does it work?
You tell us about one of your favorite places in your OAK or SF neighborhood by recording a short audio message right here on the Participate page! We follow up and schedule a time to meet you at that place. We’ll bring our microphones, you bring the story! We’ll ask why this place matters to you and spend some time recording its natural sound. The stories we collect will go on our Listening Map for visitors to hear and explore. Some will even air on KALW 91.7FM.

Hear Here is part of a national initiative of AIR, the Association of Independents in Radio, Inc designed to bring new journalistic and technical ingenuity to extending public media service to more Americans. From Chinese restaurants in Boston, to shuttered factories in Dayton, to the oil fields of North Dakota, to Bay Area startups, the ten Localore production teams are working with their public station incubators to uncover ground-up stories of America in transition.
