Greetings fellow "prod" types! After a fat March Cassette with the R.A.P. Awards finalists, we're back to our regular format this month. We begin side A with a spotlight on Scot Combs who was the subject of our interview last month. We delayed his audio presentation because of the awards. You'll love the post-war spoofs from Andy Capp/KELO-AM/FM. Cut 6 is the re-do of "Do The Bartman" (2-track production) from Tim Forrest/WYNU-FM as discussed in this month's "Forum." Cut 7 and 8 come from two hot producers that just happen to be available (see classifieds). The latter cut, by Tom Sawyer, is used as the open to his aircheck/production demo tape.

On side B we begin with three spots for the Outback Party Store from John Pellegrini/WKLQ-FM. These three spots are from a campaign that won an Addy for Best Regional/National Campaign. Way to go, John! Cut 4 is actually two spots taken directly from Brian Battles' "How To Produce Great Radio Commercials" cassette program. Brian brings us this month's feature article. Cut 6 is what happens when you put too many straws on a camel's back. Cut 7 features copy and voice-work from a sales executive under the direction of Craig Rogers/WHO-AM.
