RAP-CD-logo-2Welcome to the August 2004 RAP CD. We get started with a demo from this months interview subject, Ric Gonzalez, Creative Services Director at Infinity Austin. Track 2 is the commercial referred to in this months Radio Hed column. Track 3 is audio from Dave Foxx for his Production 212 column. Tracks 4 through 11 are the "most requested" pieces described in this months Q It Up column. We get some great promos on tracks 12 through 18, including an impressive promo on track 14 done by students! Commercials fill out tracks 19 through 25, starting with an exceptional spot for Weathershield Wood Care. Timothy Miles notes: "[The owner] told me a story during our original interview that many of his calls are from women whose husbands tried to do it themselves with their buddies, but they ended up making a drunken mess of the backyard." Cut 26 from James Stodd is a feature length "launch promo" for a contest nice way to hype a contest at the outset. Track 27 from Glenn Cook features his many character voices in a bit he did for his morning show partner. And we wrap things up with some fun with "Juror #5" from Al Peterson and a new twist on the Godfather theme from CJ Goodearl.
