The theme for this compilation was inspired in part by the Dan Rather issue (PhotoStatic no. 22), which appeared at roughly the same time. Separate submissions by three individual members of The Tape-beatles make an appearance, at least one of which forming the basis for a more developed work on the Music with Sound CD, released some three years later. Madison art workers are well represented, too, with submissions from Aquatics Ever Tarnish and Ybrigor Moss. Other interesting works by Philip Blackburn, Richard Kostelanetz, Barry Edgar Pilcher, and Patrick T also maintain the level of interest.
