A Feast of Hearing is an audio arts sampler radio series form Cassette Mythos.
Around 1990, Robin James edited and produced a book called “Cassette Mythos” which documented the cassette and home taping scene. It included features and interviews of musicians, articles by many home tapers/ underground artists and was generally a guide to the entire cassette movement. It was published by Autonomedia and, as far as I can know, the only book to ever document this slice of musical and social history. - Don Campau's foreword; an excerpt from Robin James interview on The Living Archive Of Underground Music by Don Campau
