An international compilation cassette (C-60) compiled and produced in 1990 by Christof Migone.

Identification was at first intended to feature solely IDs from radios real or imaginary. It quickly became less specific.

Cassette cover of sandpaper with title stamped on a purposely inconvenient flap.

Published by see///.saw tapes (now defunct).

This compilation includes almost everything that can be done. Live music, listener calls, DJ patter/interviews /explanations, show ID's and even a small excerpt from a W.S. Burrough's press conference. This is a very enjoyable tape and the selections are generally short and to the point. Boredom, therefore, is kept to an absolute minimum. Recommended.
-Brian Fulmer, The Single Eye (Montréal)

Curieux mélange que celui présenté sous emballage abrasif: sons musique, extraits d'émissions de radio, audio art, tout se bousculant joyeusement, dans un ensemble particulièrement réussis. Encore une production qui enchantera ceux et celles qui sont en overdose d'écoute des émissions standardisées des radios commerciales!
