RAP-CD-logo-2Welcome to the July 2014 R.A.P. CD! We kick things off with this month’s Editor’s Choice Award winner, a well-done piece for Father’s Day from George Johnson. This is a poem George wrote, voiced and produced, about his father, who was a news photographer for the Associated Press. Visit rapmag.com for more notes from George about this wonderful tribute. Next up is audio from this month’s interview subject, Ron Tarrant, which opens with his two RAP Awards winners, the “Wham Bam Wrap Up” promo and the “Kiss 102.7 Station Launch” Feature Production. Dave Foxx’s Production 212 audio is on track 3. Promos are on tracks 4-10, and commercials are on tracks 11-18, starting with a spot from Langley Gerrard with an interesting way to grab the listener’s attention. Track 19 is a D-Day anniversary montage from Colin McGinness which aired across all UKRD stations. And we wrap it up with a special treat from our interview subject, Ron Tarrant – this is a song from his band Lost In Film!
