SOUND

Plug in your headphones! On the semester’s season finale of North Gate Radio our reporters bring you sound from all around.

We hear the sounds of deployment and the music of interment camps. We play around with algorithms and synthesizers and learn about the rise and fall of a unique Bay Area Jazz club. If you can’t find the words to describe your thoughts about all of this, don’t worry – we have a story on that to.
