Don Campau – A Box full of Tapes

The collection of cassettes that arrived in Don’s postbox is slowly reducing. Every month he sends a big parcel to the museum for cassette culture that in some near future will rise in Zeppelin City in Bavaria, close to the homeland of the von Trapp Family. Don compiled this show completely at random, picking tapes from a huge box next to his chair.

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.
