Welcome to the July 2000 RAP Cassette! We begin Side A with an exceptional demo from this months interview subject, Keith Smith/KRTH, Los Angeles. Voices you'll hear on the demo include Charlie Van Dyke, the station voice, along with Bobby Ocean, Beau Weaver, Gary Owens, and Rick Chase. Turn it up! Cuts 2 through 8 offer more great commercial work from around the globe. Patrick O'Regan does a nice job of directing his 5-year-old son on cut 5. And cut 9 is another semi-finalist from this years RAP Awards Feature Production category. (If you found Tony Montana (Scarface) offensive, you might want to skip this one!) Side B is packed with promos some recent submissions and some from the archives, but all of it great work!
