It is always a pleasure to listen to a new show by Don Campau. There’s always a hidden gem; in this show The Cheese and their cheap kisses. The tracks he chose are mostly from the 80s, and not few of them remind of the music styles that were dominant back then.

Don’s choice for this show is, well, a bit on the weird side, and a very enjoyable weirdness it is. Hear him introduce the songs, talk about the makers in this new edition of the cassette culture encyclopaedia.

The No Pigeonholes radio show is a result of Don’s direct involvement with the cassette culture, the vast network of home-produced cassette exchangers that anticipated the internet, its social networks and the whole shabam of netlabels and free downloadable musicians. An attempt to archive the movement is in his Living Archive of Underground Music.
