531.

12/26/2007 12h10 Maastricht (the Netherlands) - Floretruwe spot

In the gutter, not far from the busstop at the Vendelplein. A complete, but also completely crashed cassette (see pictures). It's a compilation of pop music. On the index card the tape has been baptized 'Hit explosion', and the tracks have been carefully written down in a girl's hand writing, with little red and green colored squares in front of artists and titles (see picture).
530.

12/16/2007 17h12 Bagnolet (France) - avenue Gallieni spot

From the gutter near the entrance of the fenced-off part of the fleamarket (see picture). French chansons.
529.

12/16/2007 17h10 Bagnolet (France) - avenue Gallieni spot

From the gutter near the entrance of the fenced-off part of the fleamarket I picked a TDK SA60 cassette. On the A-side label is written: "4 CHANSONS, déposées SACEM. *" Somewhat disappointingly, what's on it did not live up to this 'promise' ... It was filled with 1980s pop. Most of it Simple Minds. In the montage you hear french 1980s pop: part of 'Cargo de Nuit', by Axel Bauer.
528.

12/16/2007 17h05 Bagnolet (France) - avenue Gallieni spot

A broken TDK MC30 micro-cassette, in the gutter near the Liebert Hiross building. It came from a telephone answering machine, but there is nothing much on it.
527.

12/16/2007 16h55 Bagnolet (France) - avenue Gallieni spot

In the gutter, near nr. 139. American crooner. Guess this is Frank Sinatra?
526.

10/21/2007 13h35 Paris VIII (France) - Boulevard Haussmann spot

On the little square on the corner with the avenue de Messine (see picture). The bit of tape turned out to be empty.
