The R.A.P. Cassette - June 1997

We begin Side A with a fantastic demo from Jeffrey Hedquist, this month's interview subject. The demo begins with about sixty seconds of voice samples from Jeffrey, followed by a commercial montage, and ending with a sampling of some original music from Hedquist Productions.

We had very few commercials submitted this month, and there's a surplus of promos in the RAP tape archives. So promos make up the rest of Side A and most of Side B. We wrap up Side B with a couple of feature productions. Cut 11 is a hilarious piece from Don Elliot and Steve Lehman done when Don was at KIIS in LA. The last cut is an "extended" promo from Ron Maxwell. Ron regularly submits productions that tug at your emotions, and this cut for WSOR's Mother's Day promotion is no exception. (The audio for this month's Producer's VU column slipped through the cracks somewhere along the line. We'll find it and put it on next month's Cassette.)
