This is Kath. She is 8 months pregnant and as a result, is part Indian. In 2002 she went backpacking around Europe with a mate and was in charge of the ‘music situation’ for the long trips. She didn’t believe CDs had longevity so she transferred all of them onto cassettes. She set off with a walkman and 1kg of mix tapes – most of which were musicals. Dead set legend.
