We open up side A with a sample of work from Steve Taylor, Production Director at News/Talk KGO in San Francisco and subject of this month's interview. Cuts 2 and 3 come from Glenn Miller and the Radio Workshop at KBFW-AM in Bellingham, WA (see article Raw, Essential Mono in this month's issue. Like Glenn's promos, cut 4 from Al Peterson also serves to attract more advertisers. We wrap up side A with some sweepers from Steve Hunt & Ray McGregor of B105 in Brisbane.
Side B opens with a couple of well done club spots. Cuts 3 and 4 come from Andy Capp of KELO-AM/FM, and Andy sends this information on the first spot: ...the first is a Xmas commercial for two pizza places, both owned by the same people, both with robots for the kids. This is one of my favorite clients because their marketing person always has great ideas that translate well to radio. For the record, they've set up a competition between the two stores in their advertising via the "head robots" of each pizza joint, Wilber & Rollie."
Cut 8 is the spot from Greg Scott Fisher/WZZB-FM that he refers to in this month's Tips & Techniques section. We wrap up side B with some stuff to chuckle at.
