The R.A.P. Cassette - November 1996

We begin Side A with a demo from Matt Rawlings, this month's interview subject. There's a lot of great production talent in Indianapolis, and Matt is no exception! Cut 2 is the audio for this month's Producer's VU column--more incredible work from Bob Lawson at WJMK in Chicago. As always, read the column then listen, or listen then read! Rich Van Slyke is still crankin' out the outstanding production as is evident on cut 4 (and cut 4 on Side B, too). Cut 6, "Polyester 104.7", is a collection of IDs aired prior to the "official" calls and format of a new station. The fake format was intended to draw attention, and it did. More promos fill up side A, and we wrap up the side with two well done sets of sweepers from B105 in Australia and WDVE, Pittsburgh, PA.

Side B opens with an Indiana Broadcasters Association awards winner. The spot for Indy Lube won "Best Commercial/Large Markets." Seinfeld fans will love cut 4. A couple of nice spots for McDonalds are featured on cuts 6 and 7. Producer Kat Morgan reports: ...the ideas in the script came from real situations with a few of the "parents of teenagers" on staff. In fact, one of our sales reps and her high school freshman daughter pretty much play themselves in one spot. All the background sounds are the real thing. An intern and I took our portable DAT out to gather sfx at one of the high schools, a McDonalds at lunchtime, and rummaging through a store's clothing department." Nice work! Cut 8 never ran, but it's a well done rip-off of the old Archie Bell & the Drells tune, "Loosen Up." Cut 11 captured an Honorable Mention award from the recent Kansas Association of Broadcasters awards competition. Lots more excellent commercial work on Side B.
