The R.A.P. Cassette - January 1994

We begin side A with an entertaining collection of work from George Robinson/WZGC-FM, subject of this month's interview. Cuts 2 and 3 come from Triple-M in Sydney. You might recall a couple of "Sex in Space" promos from 2DAY-FM on the Oct. '93 Cassette. The two cuts on this month's Cassette are for the promotion that inspired the promos from 2DAY-FM (read On The Cassette, page 13, Oct. '93 RAP for more info). Michael Jackson and John Bobbitt aren't spared this month. Cut 4 takes a poke at the pop king, and cut 5 has some fun with the Bobbitt story. We wrap up side A with an image promo from KELO-AM/FM. This is just one of several "story in a minute" promos the station did for the holiday season.

We have a surplus of promos on file, so we've put the usual dose of monthly commercials on hold until next month and filled up side B with more promos. Cut 4 is a great way to inform your audience of technical improvements made by your engineering department. There are lots of promos from oldies stations on this side. Cut 9 is another "Son of RAP" promo which was inspired by a cut on a previous Cassette. We wrap up the side with the audio portion of this month's Tips & Techniques section. Read the tip on page 14, then check out the audio on The Cassette. Thanks Craig!
