We get things started with this month’s Editor’s Choice Award winner, a promo from a student at SAIT. This might be our first ECA awarded to a student! It’s a little rough around the edges, but the concept and copy got my vote! The audio is also posted in the R.A.P. Forum’s ECA page where you can add comments of your own if you wish. Track 2 is audio for this month’s Producer’s VU column featuring a promo from Kieran Bell at The Radio Network in Auckland. Track 3 is Dave Foxx’s monthly audio contribution with some cool use of artist audio.

Submissions were light this month as they usually are around Awards time, but we have a few fresh cuts to offer and grabbed a few that have been stashed in the archives for a bit. Commercials are on tracks 4 – 12. We get a few more promos on tracks 13-15. New member Ashley Bard offers up a cool show intro on track 16, and we wrap it up with some fun from Ben Thorgeirson on track 17.
