A new Show by Don Campau from Santa Rosa in California. You will hear updates on the initiative to set up a museum for cassette culture in Friedrichshafen – Zeppelin City – in the south of Germany. Don has made a selection of the songs that appear on cassettes that will be shipped to Europe. As usual all the songs and sounds you hear, from loud American bar rock to the more unusual experiments, are made at home somewhere in the last part of the twentieth century. Meet those memories here:

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.
