The R.A.P. CD - November 2014



Welcome to the November 2014 R.A.P. CD! Up first is this month’s Editor’s Choice Award winner, a well-done spot for a car stereo shop from Matthew Redmond at Southern Cross Austereo. The audio is also posted in the RAP Forum’s ECA page, where you can add your comments if you wish. Track 2 contains two VO demos from our interview subject, Piers Gibbon. Commercials are on tracks 3 – 15. Promos are on tracks 16 – 22, starting with promos Dave Foxx mentions in his Production 212 column. Track 23 is something different, and Alan Peterson offers these notes: Remember the "Singing EBS Test" from the 1970s, made famous by WHEN Syracuse and then made illegal by the FCC? Check out the "Singing Disclaimers" recorded (but never actually used) at Radio America. The voice is liner guy Paul Dickson, the music chords were created by the free SuperWave VST synthesizer ( and the vocoding plug-in was the MDA Talkbox ( inside a "lite" edition of Samplitude. All the boring dry legal stuff is in there (no sampling, no rebroadcast etc.). Except now it’s not so boring anymore.

We wrap it up on track 24 with a station scope from Gary McClenaghan at Bell Media who suggests that we feature scopes from time to time, which is an excellent idea! So if you happen to do these at your station and have one to offer, please send! In the meantime, scan your audio for a piece of production you’ve done recently that you feel good about and submit it for next month’s CD. Deadline is Friday, November 14th. Send to Thanks! jv…
