In this show you will hear Don Campau announce, that, over this year, he will send a great part of his cassette collection to Friedrichshafen, in the very south of Germany. With time a museum, or part of a museum will be dedicated to cassette culture. While making a selection for his packet of 80-100 cassettes, he also made a selection for today’s show.


No Pigeonholes is an ongoing show, that documents the world of hometapers, bedroom producers and assorted pioneers of unusual sound collections, that together created the cassette movement as from the mid 1970s.

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.
