01/05/2011 15h55 Brussels (Belgium) - corner of the Chaussée d'Anvers and the Rue Rogier

Two tapes, found on the lawn behind an apartment building near the Gare du Nord, picked up while stretching my legs during the break of an Eurolines bus trip from Amsterdam to Paris. On the first (with labels that have cartoon-ish drawings saying 'Walkman Sony'; probably a cassette that came with a Sony Walkman) there's a series of short recordings from Belgian radio shows. The second was the cassette version of the 1964 album 'Ma Vie', from the French singer Alain Barriere.
