RAP-CD-logo-2Welcome to the June 2012 R.A.P. CD! We return to our regular format this month with a variety of creative work from around the globe. Getting things started is a sampler from this month's interview subject, Jim Van Dusen, which includes an encore performance of his winning R.A.P. Awards promos at the end, along with a commercial that picked up a Finalist award. Next up on track 2 is audio from Rod Schwartz to go with his feature article on voiceover on page 3. Dave Foxx heats it up with audio for this month's Production 212 column on track 3.

This month's Editor's Choice Award goes to Dave Cockram at Rogers Radio in Vancouver for a nicely done Nikki Minaj parody on track 4. Commercials fill out tracks 5 through 19, including a student produced commercial from SAIT on track 7 that won Best Commercial at the recent BEAC (Broadcast Educators' Association of Canada) Awards. Promos are on tracks 20 through 29, and we wrap it up with a little playtime in the studio from Denny Mattern on track 30.
