RAP-CD-logo-2Welcome to the April 2013 RAP CD as we present the 23rd Annual RAP Awards Best of the Rest Part 1. This month we feature Commercials, with Small Market Commercials on tracks 1 through 10, Medium Market Commercials on tracks 11 through 16, and Large Market Commercials on tracks 17 through 21. These entries came very close to making it to the finals, some missing it by one vote! Hats off to all for work well done! (Note: The name listed next to the entry title is the name of the individual submitting the entry. In most cases, this person is the entry's producer, copywriter, or voice talent, or any combination thereof. In cases where the person submitting the entry was not listed in the credits, we have substituted the producer's name.)

We wrap it up with audio from Dave Foxx for this month's Production 212 column. Next month it's the 23rd Annual Radio And Production Awards Best of the Rest Part 2 – Feature Productions and Promos!
