R.A.P.’s monthly audio showcase formally known as “The R.A.P. CD”, has moved online. Welcome to the R.A.P. Soundstage

We get things started with this month’s Editor’s Choice Award winner, a second ECA for Langley Gerrard at UKRD, a couple of 30s for Café One4Six. The audio is also posted in the R.A.P. forum’s ECA page with some notes on why I chose it, and you can add comments of your own if you wish. Track 2 is audio from this month’s interviewee, Karlo Zsolt. It contains three imaging demos, CHR, AC and Country respectively. Promos are on tracks 3-7, and commercials wrap it up on tracks 8-20.
