Buzzer blog repost: Story of the SkyTrain Chime

Buzzer blog repost: Story of the SkyTrain Chime

Podcasting SymbolWe’re mining popular Buzzer blog posts from days gone by to reignite fun and interesting conversations about transit!

Today we’ll be heading back to 2008 when Jhenifer Pabillano, the blog’s creator, was playing around with podcasts and looked into the story of the SkyTrain Chime.

Enjoy!

The Buzzer blog podcast is back!

This time, I’ve got the story behind the SkyTrain chime for you to hear. Ian Graham, operations planner for SkyTrain, talks all about how the chime was recorded, why we ended up with that particular sound, and who in the world actually played the chime.

To listen to the podcast, press play on the player above, or download the mp3 here. You can also subscribe to our podcast via RSS, so this audio file will download straight into iTunes or your RSS reader, and you’ll get all the future Buzzer podcasts by refreshing your subscription.

(And seriously, would you have guessed the SkyTrain chime was recorded at the same studio where Bryan Adams and AC/DC laid down albums?)
