Don’s new show is in his own words “part 1 of a special “Outsiders” program of weirdo home tapers, lo fi freaks, damaged and sensitive minds, reclusive personalities, etc.”


Be prepared for a lot of obscure music, some of which only lives its eternal life as a lost or dusty tape.

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.
