After a series of specials on labels and artists who were a pivot in the cassette culture movement that exploded in bedrooms, garage’s, living rooms, front porches and at the post offices around the world, Don continues his saga with a choice from his immense collection of cassettes.

This one is a blast. It seems like Don got out of his house to have a ride along the Californian coast, pushing the speed limits, the car radio cassette player at its loudest.

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.
