RAP CD logo 2Welcome to the December 2013 R.A.P. CD! First up is this month’s Editor’s Choice Award winner, a spot from Matt Fogarty and Russ More at Island Radio that brings excitement to the boring task of selling gas furnaces. We goofed and forgot to put two spots from Blaine Parker on this month's CD. They are the two spots he referred to in his article, "7 Steps to Mercury". You can check out those spots here: 1) Brazos Red Eye, 2) Brazos Stampede. Promos are on tracks 2 through 9, starting with what was my second choice for the ECA winner this month, which just happens to be another piece from producer Russ More at Island Radio in collaboration with Carla Johnson this time! Commercials are on tracks 10 through 16, starting with a well done series of spots for an insurance company from Jack Phillips on track 10. Track 13 is a great spot done by a student at Fanshawe College. We wrap it up with some nicely done imaging pieces on tracks 17-20.
