Show 419: CKUT : Montreal Tape Run

The Montréal Tape Run was a project spearheaded by crustacés tapes in collaboration with Berlin’s Staaltape, whose Berlin Tape Run series inspired the Montréal version. A cassette tape circulated from hand to hand across the island of Montréal in September 2013. 10 individuals were involved. Each runner received the tape, recorded a few minutes of sound on it, and transferred it to the next runner. This edition of Radia features 8 of the 10
