cassette deck is a music blog by Rach. Rach is me. I co-host an indie rock radio show on KTCU, FM 88.7 in Fort Worth, Texas. Exposing myself to new music is both an obsessive hobby and a necessity. This blog is an outlet for me to share the music I discover with friends and passers-by. Enjoy!

E-mail me if you heard something nifty and want to share, or if you're an artist looking for love (in all the right places.) I eat new music daily.

The owner of the stable where I board my horse owns several Brittany Spaniels, all of which have been trained as "bird dogs," retrieving fowl shot out of the sky. Lovely!

So here's a nice old pickin'. Hearkening to the folk-acoustic-indie genre, Birddog rivals the backwoods sentimentality of bands like Lullaby for the Working Class. Sort of reminds me of Grandaddy wandering the mountain roads in Kentucky or something.

Birddog has a considerable number of albums under their belts. As the main page of their website states, Birddog was lamentably "put to rest" in 2003.
